Decent overall, but somewhat annoying

This is a decent little bench grinder overall. There a few small things I don't like about it though: 1. The small plastic tray on the front should be mounted with a screw or something, it constantly rattles while using the grinder. That gets old after a little while. 2. I have this mounted on the craftsman stand and all it does is walk around the garage floor all the time. You need to bolt this down to the floor if you want to really do anything with it. I used the grinding wheel and the wire wheel extensively and both worked great. I now have a buffing wheel mounted on and that works great as well. Not as much room as a dedicated buffing wheel but it works great for occasional jobs and the hobbyist. Bottom line is I say go for it, just be prepared for a vibrating dish and stand if you mount it to one.

bench grinder

it is ok for home hobby use but under powered for any bigger work also when I put it together the mounts for the dust shields had to be modified to fit correctly

Great grinder

|

I bought the grinder a few weeks ago and it has been great so far. All the lawn mower blades are sharpened and ready for the first mow of the season. Plan to mount it on my new workbench when it gets delivered next week. I do wish it would have came with an optional wire wheel.

Good grinder

|

I got this at a great price. It is great for sharping mower blades and other yard tools. It is not too big for my small garage. I would recommend this product to my friends.

Great Grinder for general use.

|

This thing is great for sharping mower blades and other yard tools. Got this at a great price on sale and with shop your way points. It also works well with the stand that I also purchased this with. I would recommend this grinder for most consumers. I believe this product will last many years. I plan on getting a few more accessories such as a finer grit wheel. I also recommend using an LED light as I don't think an incandescent would last long with the vibration when this is being used.

Great little bench grinder!

|

As a DIYer homeowner I don't use my tools for my profession. I also have limited space in my garage for tool storage. So when I choose to buy something I need to feel I will use it often enough. This little bench grinder is perfect. No need to mount it on the bench. I stays in place with the weight of it's heavy duty base. So most of the time it is placed out of the way. When I need it, it works great for freshening up old screwdrivers, sharpening blades, cleaning up corroded metals (with a wire brush wheel). It's got plenty of power for the average home owner. If you use a grinder professionally you would want a larger, more powerful unit.

Just purchased this small bench grinder.

|

I needed a small bench grinder for our cabin. Sees to wrk good. I put a wire wheel on it, brushes were hitting the side & machine didn't have enough power to start on its own. You will have to make adjustments with washers so it doesn't rub anywhere. Also got a HF grinder stand which fits on it once you drill new holes.

Awesome grinder for the price!

|

Awesome grinder for the price! This is a very good grinder and comes at a very good price point. This grinder will do most light to medium duty jobs that a typical homeowner would need. If you really need to grind something heavy, this will bog down some. But overall, I give this bench grinder five stars. Very pleased with my purchase

Great Bench Grinder

I bought this for my husband and he has used it several times, he said it works really great. He said having the light is a big help and it mounted easily.

Essential workshop tool

|

If you do much "fixing" around the house, you will want one of these. Very cost-effective, and all the features you want / need in a grinder. Light works great, and appreciate the tube-accommodating tool rest. Motor is just right for what you need to do with this grinder.
