Excellent tool for the money

I purchased the Craftsman 1/6 hp 6" Bench Grinder as a replacement for an old grinder. I read several negative reviews about vibration, noise and poor running. To start with, I unpacked the unit and removed the side guards. With a permanent marker, I drew a line from the arbor out to the edge of both grinding wheels to mark the alignment. Removing the left wheel, I took care not to rotate the arbor and then performed a ring test on the grinding wheel (you can Google this to see how to do this). This MUST be done anytime a new wheel is installed. I reinstalled the left wheel taking care to align the marks, then removed the right wheel and repeated the test. I then assembled the tools rests and the spark arrestors and set the gap between them and the grinding wheels to .016" with a feeler gauge. I finished installing the face shields and gave the unit a spin by hand to assure everything cleared the grinding wheels. Finally, I moved the unit outside to a clear area and ran the unit under power for 10 minutes (turn it on from behind and get away). This proved that the unit was safe to operate. Both the running test and the ring tests are OSHA mandates for using these units in a machine shop and not a bad idea to follow at home. In conclusion, my Craftsman 1/6 hp 6" Bench Grinder has no vibration, is very quiet and performs exactly as it should. If you have vibration problems, you probably have an out of round grinding wheel. This can be set straight by shimming (Google to see how) if the wheel is out of balance laterally. If the wheel is out of round, it will need to be dressed (again, Google this and buy the correct tool to do this).

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 price for a good grinder.


This grinder came to me shipped quickly and easily assembled. Power is decent for a small 6-inch grinder and the factory wheels were decently balanced but don't expect this one to perform like a Metabo or an old USA Craftsman model. It is, however, pretty good for the price and for the average user.

Tough Little Grinder


Should have bought this tool addition a long time ago. For a little package, it packs enough horsepower to perform all your dyi grinding/sharpening chores. Doesn't take up allot of space so it's compact to transport if necessary. I am happy with my Craftsman purchase.
