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

Six inch bench grinder


So here is a bench grinder, it has a lamp, but your supply your own light bulb, I used an LED bulb. It takes a bit of assembly to place the platforms and the shields, not a big deal. You can mount it, but I just placed mine on the bench. It's not the most powerful, it takes a few seconds to get up to speed. Since heat is a concern for the integrity of metal, I don't mind it being only moderately powerful. Basically it's a tool where you can do some shaping and sharpening on, there are two different grit grinding wheels, ample shields, platforms for your material or possibly to rest your finger to align the material, the top clear shields also includes a metal block to stop sparks flying around the wheel and coming back out at you. The light has a separate switch. Other than that, there isn't a lot to it, turn it on, wait for it to come up to speed and get to work. A more expensive Craftsman model has a **** to adjust the speed. It can be used to sharpen lawn mower blades, chisels, drill bits, de-burr, or just shape metal and with less chance of overheating than a high powered grinder. My brother has also extensively used basically the same model, that I gifted him years ago with no complaints. If you don't have any patience and too much cash, you can buy a monster bench grinder instead, this one does the job for the average person's needs.

Nice Tool!


This is a quality tool with plenty of power. This purchase is the perfect example of why I buy Craftsman tools. You get a tool that rivals those from quality brands for a much better price.
