Detailed Description

Steel City 15430 8 inch Industrial Low Speed Bench Grinder Package Deal

SEE DETAILS BELOW* on how our Upgrade Package Deal improves this grinder's performance at a nice cost savings

We searched for years for an affordable 8" slow-speed bench grinder that runs as smooth as it needs to for precision tool sharpening. Alas, each one that we tried suffered the same affliction - too much vibration to sharpen accurately. Awhile back we shared this frustration with Lucas Chang, the principal owner of Steel City Toolworks, and he put his engineers to work to address this issue by designing an entirely new bench grinder. The result was the Steel City Model 15430 Industrial Bench Grinder.

The 15430 Bench Grinder runs at 1725 RPM, slow enough to dramatically reduce any likelihood of overheating your edge tools. It's powered by a quiet-running 3/4 HP continuous-duty induction motor that comes wired for 110 volts. A unique wheel balancer mechanism along with the heavy cast iron base greatly reduces grinding wheel vibration.

The 15430 grinder comes standard equipped with 36-grit and 100-grit aluminum oxide grinding wheels, 1" wide x 8" diameter, with large independently adjustable tool rests. Large see-through eye shields give good visibility while improving operator safety. Nicely-designed heavy-duty wheel covers with built-in dust hose connectors allow for excellent external dust collection. Total weight is 58 lbs.

*Highland Grinder Upgrade Package Deal - Total Value $354.96

Our exclusive Upgrade Package Deal includes everything you need to get the most out of the Steel City 8" Industrial Low Speed Grinder for ease of use during precision sharpening of your fine edge tools. It is an exceptionally good value for woodturners!

Included in the package deal along with the 15430 grinder (regular price $269.99) are:

  • Two of our 8" premium grinding wheels (one 60 grit and one 100 grit). These cool-cutting aluminum oxide wheels are ideal for sharpening turning tools and grinding plane irons and chisels. (Regular price for the pair of grinding wheels is $69.98.)
  • Our grinder upgrade knob kit, which provides T-knobs and ratchet levers to replace the hex nuts that otherwise come standard for positioning the toolrests and eyeshields. This replacement hardware will allow you to easily adjust the toolrests and eyeshields without having to go looking for a wrench. (Regular price for the knob kit is $14.99.)
