It's a beast, pics do it no justice .
It's a beast, the pics do it no justice . Forget anything from lows or Harbr frate . They are a toy compared to this thing. The wheel guards and posts are solid 1/4" thick cast iron. Nice ...only thing is the provided wheels were not too durable . Room is tight in my small shop, I have it bolted to a 2" x 12" wood beam which is more than adequate. Only thing is the provided wheels were not that durable.

JET Bench Grinder 1 HP
This is a very powerful heavy duty grinder. I think it will give years of service. It has a little vibration, but not bad. Tool rest needs to be more adjustable. I would recommend this grinder.

Great tool but poorly assembled
Opened the box to find the base was loose... Didn't want to hassle with returning the grinder since I needed it so pulled off bottom cover to tighten up. Found 3 loose nuts and one fell completely off. Luckily enough I was able to get all 4 tightened but its really sad a $200+ grinder was assembled this poorly. Harbor Freight's tools are at least assembled correctly!!!!

Grinder is awesome but Tylor Tool and Jet should be ashamed of shipping products like this.

Outstanding Grinder
I have been using this same model for over ten years in my woodworking shop. Unfortunately, it belonged to another woodworker who is moving out. My first thought was to get another 8" grinder. I did some looking around at other 8" models, but usually saw a number of cons in reveiws of them. One can certainly pay less for a grinder, but in this case I'd rather pay more and get the best. Tyler Tool had the best price I saw anywhere on this grinder, so it was to Tyler I went. I was not disappointed.

Great tool ,great price
As this tool is just new on the farm, I can say in this short span - why didn't t I have this gem before. We have used it for sharpening drill bits, chisel points , screwdrivers etc. it's become like a right- hand tool. The price was right, ,the performance beyond expectations and the company was wonderful to deal with. What more can we say - great product + great service= 1 very happy farmer. A big thank you to CPO Jet co.

Great grinder, poorly assembled
Would have been nice if the factory put locktight on all of the nuts/screws holding this bench grinder together. They vibrated loose and now it is out of true. Shaft is now crooked which means the machine going to cost more to fix than to buy new.

A great grinder
we use this grinder with 8 inch wire wheels to clean hundreds of 1 1/2" bolts. Lots of power much better than cheap [@] bench grinders. Certianly worth the money.[*]

Where do you buy accessories for it? I need a 8" diameter wire brush for this bench grinder. The one that I bought from lowes is too skinny for Jet.
