There’s a great deal on a 6” Delta variable speed bench grinder. Most places want $137 + for just the grinder. I just bought it 3 days ago and got it today. $135 plus the Delta stand!

That actually looks like a pretty good deal! Though i already have a generic 6” grinder, it could use new wheels and better work rests thats for sure…..

I really like how your shop is coming together, it looks really nice! Shop tour?

Haha. Thanks. Pretty soon. It’s really really small until I rent a dumpster and clear out the rest of the basement. Years of junk!

You described my garage before i cleaned it out, yet mine is still small, and still full of crap! 8×12…...:)

I’m curious to know if you slow the speed all the way to the slowest, how much power does it lose? Or how easy is it to bog it down?

This does look pretty interesting, but my other choice so far is this HF wet grinder

Yeah, I saw that model too. This one is a toolless model. You can take the wheel guards and the wheels off without wrenches. So it’s a different model. The stand normally sells for $99 by itself. I like it. I’m not sure if the tooless model is worth the extra $, but I thought I’d give it a try. It’s still a better deal than if I bought the $80 model and stand.

No prob. I was looking thru this sellers list of items and spotted the other one. I dont need the stand so this one would better suit me.
Thanks for posting the original, I need a new grinder and this made me start searching.

Check your local CL… I found an 8” Delta on pedestal stand with mobile base and two wheel dressers for $25 :)
There are always grinders for sale out there, cheap.

Cheers,
Brad

Question? You think that 2000RPM might be to high tor put a buffing wheel on for polishing metal. Woodcraft has a Rikon slow speed at 1750 RPM on sale for $ 99. That variable speed is an real nice feature though.

I used to polish gold and silver jewelry at higher speeds than that. You had to be careful, but it worked fine with the proper buffing compound.
