We now sell the same grinder you see in our videos, and use in our demo stations. They come without guards or tool rests. They are brand new and carry the Rikon 5-year warranty. We've found them to be reliable, and they work really well with our CBN wheels. Choose a bare grinder or grinder with CBN wheels package deal (see the Rikon Grinder page.) Our wheels are such a good value that getting a grinder with wheels still costs less than most places charge for wheels alone!
The 4-in-1 Design CBN Wheel has four usable features:
1) The face of the wheel is 1.25" wide for normal sharpening.
2) 1/4" radius on each side – our present best seller for sharpening hollowing tool bits and scrapers.
3) Both sides of the wheel have a 1" side face of CBN material for non-hollow grinding skews and scrapers!
4) The inside edge of the wheel has a 9mm 90 degree gap (about 1/3") space shoulder for making relief cuts or tapers on hook type scrapers or box scrapers.
These wheels are 8" in diameter and have 5/8" arbor holes
Shipping: Our grinders are shipped 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 delivery signature. THANK YOU.
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 will 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.
