Which 8" grinder comes out on top? Jet or Baldor?

Asked by SteveG123 January 15, 2017
1
Answer

It would depend on your meaning of on top. Both are quality items, the Baldor is built tougher, heaver in every respect and it's built in the USA/ Price hands down goes to the JET. Both are capable machines this JET is more geared for the small commercial shop or homeowner that insists on a quality tough tool. The Baldor is geared toward heavy industrial applications. The JET IBG-8 # 578008 120/220 volt grinder blurs the lines more and is a closer competitor to the Baldor than the 115 volt only JET JBG-8A . Now the question would be do you need the Baldor at 3 times the cost as the JET. If your not using the grinder in an industrial setting 10 hours a day you really don't need the Baldor, wanting it is something else.

Is the speed variable or fixed?

It is a decent grinder for the money. Certainly not the same quality as my Baldor but it does the job. The wheel guards are well made. I do not care for the one piece tool rests that are not tilt adjustable and do not wrap around the wheel. The eye shields are adequate.
