Ever wish you had a grinder just for sharpening your turning tools and another for stuff like your lawnmower blades? Now you can. This grinder is brand new and carries the Rikon 5-year warranty. This 1 hp gets up to full speed in about 2 seconds. Watch the comparison video
of this grinder vs the 1/2 hp model. This 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.
The Radius Edge Wheel: 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.
These wheels are 8" in diameter and have 5/8" arbor holes
Grits: 80, 180, 220, 350, 600, 1000. 5/8" arbor.
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 will come apart as they are machined from one solid billet, which allows use on the face and sides (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.
