The long anticipated, much appreciated slow speed grinder is back at Woodcraft! You asked for a quality product, we delivered it from a name you can trust. This 8in Slow Speed Grinder from Rikon Power Tools has been specifically designed and built for Woodcraft and is only available through Woodcraft at a price point of $139.99.
The Rikon model 80-805 Slow Speed Grinder features a smooth starting, powerful ½ HP motor. The grinder operates at 1,750 RPM, which is ideal for sharpening operations because it minimizes heat buildup and the possibility for “bluing or softening the metal edges.” This saves on your valuable tools by not having to sharpen any more than necessary for a perfect edge the first time. This grinder comes equipped with two 1″ x 8″ white aluminum oxide grinding wheels: one 120-grit wheel and one 60-grit wheel. The cast-iron base features anti-vibration rubber feet and is equipped with mounting holes for convenient attachment to a workbench or grinder stand. The grinder also comes with Tool Rests, Eye Shields, Spark Arrestors, 6′ Power Cord and a 5-Year Warranty.
