Good Grinder

Review Summary

Rockwell's 8" grinder is acually a pretty good machine. I use it to sharpen my turning tools and anything else that needs sharpening around the shop. I wish it had variable speed. The lights are built in to the wheel shields so when they go I'll probably have to get replacements only from Rockwell. The tool rests are a little cheap looking, but I made better ones. Overall just a good grinder.
