Ever wish you had a grinder just for sharpening your turning tools and another for stuff like your lawnmower blades? Now you can. This is a brand new grinder and carries the Rikon 5-year warranty. This 1 hp grinder gets up to full speed in about 2 seconds. Watch the comparison video
of this grinder vs the 1/2 hp model. This 1 hp Rikon Grinder comes with a built-in lamp. We removed the guards which allows our 1.5" wide wheels to be mounted. We've found them to be reliable, and they work really well with our CBN wheels. We offer the bare grinder, or grinder with CBN wheels of your choice. Grits: 80, 180, 220, 350, 600, 1000. 5/8" arbor.
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 is $45 continental USA - all other shipping call for estimate. This item does not qualify for the free shipping offer that comes with our group purchase buys.
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.
