Description

Sharpening tools or general grinding work is made a bit easier and more exact with RIKON’s low speed bench grinders with motor speeds of only 1,450 RPM, where other grinders operate at 3.450 RPM! This lower speed means that metal being removed can be controlled better, and reduces heat build-up and ‘bluing’ of a cutting edge being sharpened – ruining the hardness and temper of the tool.
The Rikon 1HP Low Speed Bench Grinder is a larger size motor and will tackle the tough grinding jobs that are typical in production shops, as well as the finesse shaping and sharpening of hand tools. Tool rests on this machine are extra-large and flat, without a drill bit sharpening groove. Wheel flanges are cast metal. Grinder includes a worklight, dual dust collection ports on the rear of the wheel guards, and a second pair of eye shields with 2.5x magnification for close-up inspection of your edges being ground.
