Product Overview

From deburring ragged edges to cleaning objects to sharpening blades, the WEN 8 in. Slow-Speed Bench Grinder is the ideal companion for any workshop. These machines allow for simple resuscitation of dull blades, scissors, screwdrivers and more. Compact yet powerful, the WEN 8 in. Slow-Speed Bench Grinder provides reliability even in the face of the most difficult tasks. Our package includes (2) 8 in. 1 in. wheels: a 60-grit wheel for material removal and general purpose grinding and a fine 120-grit wheel for blade sharpening and surface finishing. With our quiet 3 Amp motor, expect quick startups, smooth performance and steady speeds of 1750 RPM. This slow speed is better for sharpening edges with a nice smooth finish when compared with faster RPM grinders. Built with you in mind, our design makes wheel guard removal simple for easy wheel changes. The included eye guards can adjust to prevent them from interfering with your project. Also, the 1 in. thickness of each grinding wheel provides a large surface area for increased quickness and accuracy. Of course, as with all WEN Products, our 8 in. Slow-Speed Bench Grinder is covered with a 2-year warranty, a friendly and knowledgeable customer service hotline and a national service network. No need to waste any more money on tools, knives or blades. Remember WEN.

Will this work for sharpening carving tools. Also, is there a leather stropp wheel available.

Asked by Deeg June 26, 2015

Answers

Yes. I only use it for commissioning some new tools to set the bevels. I would recommend using sharpening stones, including slip stones, to refine your work, and you should always strop by hand.

No. Mine shipped without lights and on three sites, including the manufacturer's, the pictures and specs didn't include lights. The eye guards are good, however, and lights might create a glare.

China cannot make true running wheels?
Course wheel OK, but fine wheel a disaster. I'll work with WEN to see if the one wheel (side to side wobble) and a couple of stripped bolts can be replaced, or back it goes. I would like to get some use out of the stock wheels. Motor runs well and removed the rust on the left shaft. Hundreds of reviews from different grinders and bad wheels seem to be the main gripe. Thanks HDepot for great delivery.
