Questions & Answers

Are you able to sharpen knives

Are you able to sharpen knives
Asked by: relic
Well, Ryobi seems to insist it doesn't do anything more than sharpen chisels and lawnmower blades and such, but red tape aside, chisels and lawnmower blades are made of high carbon steel, just like knives. So yes, in theory, if it sharpens what it's supposed to, it will probably sharpen something it's not supposed to made from the same material.

can it be used for polishing?

Asked by: rep
Wait a second, I'm confused. Many are saying it CANNOT be used as a buffer, but theres a "commonly bought with this" item of "ryobi buffer pads" and on that buffer pad package, from ryobi, it has a picture of this machine on it. I'm confused. can it be used for buffing and polishing then?

Does it come with mounting bolts for bench mounting

Asked by: Bob
It would be more helpful if the bolt size would have been mentioned, instead of a simple "No". The bolt length would depend on your bench thickness. Irregardless, I'm still getting this grinder.

2.1 Amp 6 in. Grinder with LED Lights is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 239.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had high expectations for this 6" bench grinder, but am sadly disappointed, will be returning it.... Had high expectations for this 6" bench grinder, but am sadly disappointed, will be returning it. After firmly mounting to a heavy bench used for blacksmith work, it vibrated so badly that one spark shield would not stay in position and vibrated down toward the fine grit wheel mounted on the right. The two reasons for this are: 1.) the brand new included fine grit wheel from the factory is out of round, and 2.)the spark shield assembly is totally different from the "good" one on the left, i.e. the plastic arms holding the shield are flimsy and do not have the radial grooves to match the clamping screw which are on the "good" one and function to hold the shield in place over the wheel. Could not be run for more than a few seconds before vibrating down into the wheel. This part appears to be an earlier, discontinued one replaced by the "good" functional one, and picked out, packaged, and shipped with my purchase. The out of round wheel is just bad quality control. Very disappointing to receive this unit from Ryobi with such poor quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As with most Ryobi products, you get American quality at Chinese prices. Ryobi is a Japanese-owne... As with most Ryobi products, you get American quality at Chinese prices. Ryobi is a Japanese-owned company that manufacturers power tools in Hong Kong (Chinese province). They also manufacture OEM products for Milwaukee, Hoover, etc. So, while you are supporting the Chinese economy unfortunately, you are buying from a manufacturer that makes quality products. This bench grinder is easily half the cost of the DeWalt or Makita sitting next to it. It takes all the same standard grinding wheels and disks. I bought this to install a buffing wheel (which Ryobi sells separately). They sell all sorts of accessories for it as well. Being a bench grinder, it does have provisions for mounting it to the table. Although the image shows two mounting holes (one on either side), the actual device has four mounting holes (one at each corner). I highly recommend this tool for it's high quality and low price. It compares in price with the Harbor Freight alternative, but at a much better quality point.

I didn't expect to find cheap plastic mounting brackets for the spark shields that needed to be fastened to the metal housing with screws that were over-sized for the holes in the housing. Using a properly sized handheld screwdriver and a lot of effort I was only able to get 2 out-of-the 4 screws tightened up enough to hold the spark shields securely in place before rounding out the screws. This Ryobi uses battery operated LED lights on a corded tool (why?), a small cheap field-of-view magnifying spark shield that hinders rather than helps, and perhaps most importantly the grinder's sharpening guides can not be adjusted. To top it off once you're done assembling it you're left with a large spacer ring, with no explanation as to why. This product is poorly designed and cheaply manufactured.
