Detailed Description

Steel City 15430 8 inch Industrial 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. Two years ago we shared our frustration with Lucas Chang, the principal owner of Steel City Toolworks, and we believe his engineers have now come through with a good machine.

Steel City's model 15430 bench grinder runs at 1725 RPM, slow enough to dramatically reduce any likelihood of overheating your edge tools. The grinder is 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 equipped with 36 grit and 100 grit aluminum oxide grinding wheels, 1" wide x 8" diameter, with large independently adjustable tool rests. Please note: for optimum grinding of high speed steel turning tools, we recommend replacing the standard wheels with either our pink aluminum oxide grinding wheels, or our Norton 3X grinding wheels in 60 grit and 100 grit.

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.
