The 1 hp Rikon Grinder:
Ever wish you had a grinder just for sharpening your turning tools and another for stuff like your lawnmower blades? Now you can. This 1 hp Rikon Grinder comes with a lamp and is ready to mount CBN wheels of your choice. We removed the guards which allows our 1.5-inch wide wheels to be mounted. They are brand new and carry the Rikon 5-year warranty. The 1 hp gets up to full speed in about 2 seconds. Watch the comparison video
of this grinder vs the 1/2 hp model. We've found them to be reliable, and they work really well with our CBN wheels.
The CBN Wheels:
Diameter = 8"
Arbor hole = 5/8"
Wheel width = 1.5"
CBN (cubic boron nitride) grinding wheels are State-of-the-Art for grinding high-speed steel tools These wheels are designed for use with bench-type grinders. 1800 rpm or 3600 rpm Perfect for sharpening Woodturning Tools (high speed steel) Provides a superior edge compared to the old stone wheel Balanced – does not require "truing"
The Mega Square
CBN Wheel edge is covered with CBN material and is a full 1.5" wide. The side faces are a full 1" of CBN material!
Because we use 6061 aluminum this beast of a wheel only weighs in at 4 lbs, 10 oz. The stone wheels that come with most grinders weigh 3 lbs, 7 oz – so this wheel, while being massive, only weighs about one pound more.
The Radius Edge: A unique feature of this wheel is the 1/4" radius on the left and right side of the wheel. The radius makes it easy to grind small 1/4" hollowing bits and round scrapers. This eliminates the problem of having to rotate a tool by the handle (in the case of scrapers) and end up over-grinding the tip. This is a very handy feature, and you can hold the small bits and not burn your fingers. You won't find a better wheel at these incredible prices. Money back guarantee.
CBN wheels will change the way you sharpen forever – Think razor sharp edges.

Any and all free shipping offers do not apply to grinders. Our grinders are shipped UPS ground with a signature required for your protection. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DO NOT WANT A SIGNATURE REQUIRED ON DELIVERY – PLEASE LET US KNOW AT THE TIME YOU ORDER. WoodTurners Wonders will not be responsible for lost or NO Show deliveries on orders not requiring a

Please note: Grinders are shipped fully setup and mounted with your choice of CBN Wheel(s) and your choice of grits using spherical washer set(s). All orders with wheels mounted are tested before being sent out. Guards or tool rests do not come with the grinder as most wheels are too wide, and it's assumed the user will utilize their own tool holding jigs with this setup. There is zero chance wheels can come apart as they are machined from one solid billet, which allows use on the face and side of wheels (Mega Square and/or 4-in-1 design). As with all power equipment caution should be taken by the experienced operator. Operator assumes all risks. Please read instructions and caution sheet in the box on the reverse side of the lifetime warranty. – Thanks.
