Answer

We recommend only using grinding wheels rated for 3,600 RPM or higher with a 1/2" arbor hole or appropriate sized bushing. Using a 1" wide wheel would be too wide for the bushings and arbor nut to be securely fastened.

Has a strong motor, starts really slow have to wait for it to get to full speed. The tool rest don't give any way to tip them to an angle, so they're not very usable. Using a jig to sharpen lathe tools the tool rest are in the way, due to the mounting point is part of the wheel cover. It's almost better the rest mount not even be there.
