      Decent overall, but somewhat annoying
      This is a decent little bench grinder overall. There a few small things I don't like about it though: 1. The small plastic tray on the front should be mounted with a screw or something, it constantly rattles while using the grinder. That gets old after a little while. 2. I have this mounted on the craftsman stand and all it does is walk around the garage floor all the time. You need to bolt this down to the floor if you want to really do anything with it. I used the grinding wheel and the wire wheel extensively and both worked great. I now have a buffing wheel mounted on and that works great as well. Not as much room as a dedicated buffing wheel but it works great for occasional jobs and the hobbyist. Bottom line is I say go for it, just be prepared for a vibrating dish and stand if you mount it to one.

      bench grinder
      it is ok for home hobby use but under powered for any bigger work also when I put it together the mounts for the dust shields had to be modified to fit correctly

      Bench Grinder 6 inch

      I have been using this type of bench grinder for over 12 years. I've sharpened tools, ground deer antlers, buffed brass and used it on dozens of projects. I purchased this grinder for my son-in-law as a X-mas gift.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Quite handy; use it for many more things than originally planned.

      Bought this grinder to save some labor from hand sharpening many garden tools, mower blades, etc. Was impressed how firm its foundation was after I fastened it (with some narrow bolts) to my work bench. After being mounted and convenient, other uses became obvious: smoothing edges on cut metal, sharpening chisels, grinding fabricated parts to make them fit. In other words, if you have this grinder, you will probably use it a lot. The light is a benefit, also; even when not using the grinder, having the light on helps one to read barely discernible labels. The unit is light weight, and I plan on taking it to other locations. NOTE: the fasteners I encountered were all metric, and you might need such wrenches to assemble and adjust it.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Hobby or Personal Grinder

      I bought this to be able to buff acrylic. The threads cut into the end of the shaft stopped too far out for me to be able to mount my 6" cloth wheel easily, so I bought several flat washers to take up some of the excess room. That worked fine. The actual mounting process would be better if there was a way to lock the shaft while taking off the nut. The manuals suggestion of jamming a piece of wood into the opposite wheel didn't work for me, so I wound up using a pair of vise-grips to hold the opposite wheel in place. The unit seems to start slowly, and build up to full speed over several seconds.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Really good

      Bought as Christmas present for my husband. He loves it. He uses it for all his grinding projects. He made a table to mount it to and it mounted easily. Very satisfied with product.

      Average Light Duty 6" Bench Grinder

      This was an insurance replacement for an older Craftsman 6" bench grinder that was damaged from facility water issue. The on/off switch is much lighter duty than the older model and will likely cause problems in the future -- but my impression of this may be wrong. This grinder did not come with a stone dresser, so I had to steal the one from the older one. Seems to run smooth out of the box and will work for most light duty grinding. I am going to say that I would not recommend this to a friend because there are less expensive bench grinders out there that are very comparable, but overall it is very usable.
