Answer: 
Yes but you must disassemble the "fender" guard that protects the wheel to access the axle nut

Answer: 
Hi Dean323, I contacted Ryobi, and found out this product comes with a spacer, you use if you install a buffing wheel or wire wheel. So yes you can use a buffing wheel.

Answer: 
The picture on the website is misleading. The lights are actually battery operated LEDs that bolt onto the guard.

Answer: 
Hi curious,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
The 8'' Ryobi grinder has lights incorporated into the hood, right above each wheel.
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-8-in-Bench-Grinder-BGH827/100497935#
This lighting design eliminates the need for a flex neck light.
Thanks for asking,
Travis

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Serious diappointment I owned this grinder for less than 6 months, and the motor seized. This grinder was only used occasionally, barely 15-20 times, with light tasks. It blew a 20 amp breaker when it failed on start up. When it worked, it's performance was no better than expected, but it did handle light grinding work. I've since replaced this with a Delta bench grinder. MUCH higher quality for a little more money. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light There is a work around to get the light to work without turning on the machine. Open the bottom and inside bypass the wire from the light going through the grinder on the power switch. The light will now have a direct power source without turning the machine on. Anyone with basic electrical skills can do this. So just find someone you know that can do a simple cut and wire nut connection to the line in before the switch. This give power directly to the light. It's a great machine and it works fantastic and even better that I can control the light without turning on my grinder March 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Save your money, invest in a larger one I build custom knives. Today I was working on my newest 1/4" survival knife and tried to use that little "Ryobi Thing" much to my dismay. It has a slow start, virtually no power as I could never put pressure hard against the wheels. Speaking of the wheels, one was so out of balance I had to remove it, the other so soft, every contact with it resulted in a groove in the wheel. This thing might get an average rating if you doubled the horsepower and gave it balanced and harder wheels. As it stands right now, I wouldn't want my worst enemy to purchase this junk! August 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by design flaw The only problem I noticed was that the rest for your knives or tools or whatever you're sharpening has no angle adjustment which i find very annoying and if u choose to put out a little more money and buy the ryobi 8in bench grinder the rest will adjust to any angle. Other than that this is a good product that has more power than I expected. I'm not sure why everyone is saying that it slows under pressure because I haven't noticed anything at all like that overall it's not a bad purchase and it's Better than I expected December 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value This is my first Ryobi purchase and I was surprised by how well the grinder performed. I wanted something to sharpen lawnmower blades, axes etc and didn't want to spend a whole lot on a grinder that I would only use a handful of times each year. I own tools from other brands including Bosch, Dewalt, Makita etc. It performs well, was easy to set up and is quiet. No complaints and for the price it is a good deal. May 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the money Well worth the money spent on it. I had been shopping around for a good grinder that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Found it here at Home Depot in the Ryobi6 in. Bench Grinder. July 8, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good So Far I had one for 60 days and it would not start when selecting the on switch. Had to manually turn the wheel to make it start. Machine winder at a local shop told me the start capacitor probably went out so I took it back and had them give me another one. Hopefully it will not have the same issue as I have several different types of Ryobi tools and they have been as good as the Dewalt and Milwaukee I own. Time will tell. Always get the extended warranty on these things. January 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for DIY! To test unit, sharpened some small knives, without bolting to a bench. Did not shake, did not wander about bench. Decent price for a decent unit! March 25, 2014
