Detailed Description

Rikon 8 inch Professional Low Speed Bench Grinder

We have been searching for years for an affordable slow-speed 8" bench grinder that runs smoothly. Alas, each one that we tried suffered the same affliction – too much vibration for accurate sharpening. Now, the engineers at Rikon Tools have put an end to our search.

Rikon's model 80-808 bench grinder runs at 1750 RPM, slow enough to dramatically reduce any likelihood of overheating your edge tools. The grinder is powered by a quiet-running 1 HP 120 volt continuous-duty induction motor. It's very smooth running and comes with bigger, beefier wheel washers than we've seen on any other grinder. Wheel washers may sound boring but they make a big difference. The wheel washers on this grinder are a full 2-5/8" in diameter and 7/16" thick (maximum, they're tapered of course). The inside washer doesn't seat on a tiny 1/32" shoulder like on some grinders we've tried. The 5/8" shaft on the Rikon Professional Grinder has a 13/16" shoulder to insure that the washer will seat without wobbling.

The 80-808 grinder comes equipped with friable, white aluminum oxide 8" diameter by 1" thick grinding wheels (one 60 grit and one 120 grit). They're ideal for sharpening HSS turning tools or grinding chipped chisels and plane irons. The grinder has heavy duty tool rests and an adjustable LED work light to aid your sharpening. Add in the dust collection ports, clear eye shields (one with 2x magnification) and you have an exceptional grinder at a very reasonable price.
