Recently I just bought a grinder for the workshop to sharpen my lathe tools. I looked at other grinders and I could really only find a couple grinders with variable speed. This one has variable speed from 2000-3400 rpms. It is a great grinder. I have heard a lot of other people say that this grinder is junk. It isn’t. I have heard people saying that the motor turned over two times and it died. This hasn’t happened to me; I asked the salesman at Lowe’s if I could test the grinder. He allowed me to open up the box and test it out. It fired right up.
There is only one thing that I don’t like about this grinder, is that it has pretty small platforms to set whatever your grinding on. I wish they were bigger and beefier. I will be getting the Oneway Wolverine Sharpening system to sharpening my lathe tools soon. The Wolverine has a larger platform that I will use.
But other than that it is a great grinder, I highly recommend it!!!
I have a video if the grinder on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFk7In4tNX4&feature=plcp
