Overview

Jet's new 8'' Bench Grinder features a low 1725 RPM, optimized specifically for sharpening woodworking tool steels with minimal risk of burning or bluing. It comes standard with two premium-quality Norton wheels: an 80 grit 3X Blue Ceramic Alumina wheel for coarse grinding and a 100 grit White Aluminum Oxide wheel for finish grinding. Jet's innovative tool rests take the guesswork out of sharpening with an integrated angle indicator and reference lines for easy alignment. The generous size of the tool rests helps keep chisels and plane blades stable while sharpening. So many premium components loaded into one comprehensive machine can only lead to one thing: cutting edge results.

  • Includes two high-quality Norton wheels: 80 grit 3X Blue Ceramic Alumina K Grade for coarse grinding, 100 grit White Aluminum Oxide for finish grinding.
  • Oversized tool rests with integrated angle indicator for stability and easy adjustments.
  • Tool rest reference lines simplify tool alignment.
  • Slow speed of 1725 RPM is optimal for sharpening common tool steels.
  • Durable cast iron wheel covers.
  • Easily adjustable, oversized shields.
  • Built in spark arrestors.

Expected better from Jet

John Posted December 20, 2014
I have a Jet mini-lathe and a belt sander that I have been very pleased with so even tho' more expensive than many grinders, I did not hesitate to purchase this grinder when it went on sale. I must admit I am disappointed in the quality of my particular unit. The packing was sloppy and pieces were laying loose in the box. The unit makes a noticeable noise when starting and stopping but runs very smoothly at speed. The included Norton wheels have 5/8" holes rather than 1" with bushings. I simply could not get these to balance and immediately ordered a set of CBN wheels (5stars!) from D-Way. Overall, the unit performs fine and my lathe tools have never been sharper with the CBN wheels. I'm glad I purchased this during the sale as I will never use the included Norton wheels.
