Versatile tool that performs many tasks with ease; sharpening, cleaning, descaling, buffing, and many more. The variable speed allows me to setup the speed to match the particular material I'm working. Looking forward to many years of trouble-free work.
Picked it up on sale and have done some light grinding and wire wheel use so far. Will give it a good test shortly after doing some welding to see how well it does. I'm sure it will be more than adequate for what I will be using it for. I really like the variable speed option. The wire wheel doesn't seem like it's going to last very long. Will changing it out to a sturdier one when it's finished.

No power. Takes 15 secs to get up to speed. Either out of balance or shaft not completely straight, so it wobbled/viabrated pretty bad once it got up to speed. Set it up, started it, saw that it was not up to my equipment standards and should not be up to the craftsmen brand standards and immediately returned it. I am concerned about craftmen putting their name on this. I am huge fan and hope this is not a sign of things to come.

Bought it, set it up quickly and made it pay for itself in one night. No problem took only a short time to do that. Variable speed nice touch all the features are nice. Like the light. Small but stable, I didn't even bolt it down. It isn't a heavy duty one so appreciate it for what it is. Going to enjoy this for years to come I can tell. Could use onboard storage somehow for wrench and bit attachment. Bolts that needed to be tightened for assembly in tight spot and kinda akward to to. Only drawbacks I can tell.

Set this up in minimal time. Bolts could be in better spot for easier access as set up was clumsy with supplied wrench. I was going to bolt it down temp for testing but no bolts included so tried it out without. Steady, plenty of power and didn't move with the small stuff I did. Paid for itself first night I had it so it's all gravy now. Probably going to go get the stand for it now. This isn't for heavy work so use it for what you need and appreciate the quality of it at this price. Light is great, clean up tool nice too. Need place to store wrench and bit plate accessory on board to keep it all together. Safety components great but I don't leave it plugged in when not in use. Online price was $15 higher than in store, watch the online pricing here. I lucked out finding a coupon on line for 15 bucks off but still feel swindled by the online con that it was the best price. HA ! An awesome buy still even with my negative observations !
The assembly instructions were clear & easy to follow, so I had it together in about 20 minutes. Since then I've sharpened blades, cleaned pieces with the wire wheel, and even sharpened a drill bit. The "variable" part is great. I highly recommend the Craftsman Variable Speed 6" Grinding Center.
