My little K-mart B&D bench grinder gave up the ghost last week after over 30 years of service. I am now looking for a new bench grinder. I’d like one with variable speed and came across the Steel City model 15420, and 8 inch grinder with variable speed from 1725-3450 RPM. This seems like a wider range of speeds than most variable speed grinders.
Is an 8 -inch grinder too big for my needs? Would a 6 inch be better?
Most of my grinding will be regrinding damaged cutting edges on planes and chisels, but I will also use it for sharpening kitchen knives, lawnmower blades, etc.
Would this be a good grinder for these purposes? Anyone have experience with this grinder to provide advice?
