This grinder is a good grinder to start off with but you need to replace the crappy gray wheels that come with the grinder you should get the white ones with dont wear off as much but other than that it is a nice grinder. A good add on is to build bigger platforms or tools rests because the ones that come with this are not very big for a no. 7 jointer plane blade. This grinder costs about $50.00 and their are things to upgrade but nobody buys a a $2000 cabinet saw and doesnt upgrade the fence and the miter gauge.

This is just my opinion on the matter of reviews. But when you list several short comings, its not really a 5 star item.

Just because it’s not 5 stars doesn’t make it a bad tool, but it kind of gets hard to compare tools when they’re all 5 stars.

You haven’t really said anything positive about this grinder , and yet gave it 5 stars …? You mentioned grinding a plane blade with it .What speed does it run at ? How much did you pay for it ? What was your total cost after buying new wheels and rebuilding the tool rests ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Have your say...
