I went to woot to check out of there was anything good. Most of the time i dont find anything i want or for a good price but today that changed. There was a slow speed grinder on there for only $50. I ordered one. Just so everyone knows they only have so many and they will sell out then its gone for good. Thought i would pass along the deal.

Just ordered one! Thanks for the link! I’ve been wanting one for a while, but haven’t seen one in this price range. I’ve heard good things about woot, so hopefully the product isn’t a bust.

Thanks for the link! I got one too. You just about can’t buy the wheels for that price.

It’s a very good deal, I bought that exact grinder a few weeks ago for $60 from Amazon.

Woot is owned by amazon now so its pretty good. i think its just stuff amazon cant move enough of so they put it up there. i look up there sometimes for the bora tools to see if there is a good deal.

@Fred: how well does it work? Would you have time for a quick review?

Yes, most bench grinders turn at double that. (3400-3600 rpm)

Mine works very well, perfectly smooth right out of the box. I did read some reports from others (different forum) that they got one with one or both wheels badly out of balance. I also have one of the older Woodcraft slow speed grinders, I wanted 2 so one could be set up for my turning tools, the second for my other stuff. This filled that void nicely for me. BTW, it’s pretty much the same grinder as the one I got from Woodcraft, although it was made a few years ago when they had 3/4 HP motors. But the gaurding, tools rest, etc. is pretty much the same stuff.
