  1. Corley Southern

    Not as smooth as my old Baldor but still a pretty good buy for the money. Works well with my new CBN wheels. I haven’t had it long enough to vouch for its durability.

  2. Coffee, lunch and crab

    Motor, base, and bearings are excellent – But! you will have to change both stones (Very Bad Wobble)- I replaced one stone with Task Tools T35945 8-Inch by 1-Inch Silicon Carbide Bench Grinding Wheel, 80 Grit – I put E14 to E12 Converter Lamp Adapter with Uniox Solar Power 12V-24 Volt Default Candelabra E12 LED Bulb 4 Watts 360 Lumens Warm White 3000K to correct the poor light. I replaced the second stone with DEWALT DW4906 8-Inch Crimped Bench Wire Wheel, 5/8 Arbor, Medium Face, .014-Inch Wire. Dressed and trued stone – Now it is smooth and powerful.

  3. Amazon Customer

    Quiet, powerful. Great grinder.

  4. Fred

    I purchased this grinder to sharpen wood lathe tools. It operates smoothly and quietly without any noticeable vibration. I looked at several and this seemed to be the best value.

  5. Buys Too Much Stuff

    The wheels that come with the unit are complete trash, the factory screwed the pooch and sent 2 non-magnified guards for the left and 2 magnified for the right instead of 1 each for each side, the tool rests are the lowest grade of Chinese in, and the light is a joke. Since I bought this unit to replace a Hazard Frought grinder in my one-way sharpening jig, I don’t care about any of the ancillary shortcomings. The tool rests and light went straight to the fuggit bucket. After messing with the stones and finding out that their wobbles are due to lateral casting failures (neither one lies flat on either of their sides), I donated the stones to a cheap f-tard at work who will likely use them until they shatter and put out one of his eyes – hey I’m doing him a favor since his life’s goal is to go on disability.Note that if you want to remove the rubber feet you will need to source some shorter bolts – the foot bolts also hold in the plate on the bottom of the grinder that a big capacitor is mounted to, and with the feet removed the bolts are too long to secure the plate.

  6. Poor old dad

    Received the Rikon grinder earlier today, and this thing is a beast! I mulled over the purchase for several weeks, studied reviews on Amazon and other sites, before pulling the trigger. In reading the reviews, there were consistencies in the negatives. However, the negatives were more for the light (poor) and the wheels (average to below average). Yes, Rikon would be better omitting those features, but even with those items, this thing is still remains very positive. This is a very heavy, 1HP grinder!After unpacking, I was curious to start it up and I did so, without fastening to my workbench. It ran extremely smooth and when fastened to my bench, it will only be better. As for the wheels, I already have a CBN wheel and machined washers, to replace one of the stock wheels. The other will be replaced with a Norton 3X in a few weeks. The tool rests are OK, however, I already have a Oneway Tool Rest System, and that will be put into place tomorrow. With the new tool rest and the new CBN wheel mounted (180 grit, for chisels and plane blades), I should be well taken care of.If I see any quibbles with the machine, I will definitely edit this post, but as it stands, color me very pleased. By the way, I am a 67 year old goomer. I spent the first 20 years of my life as a professional carpenter, and the next 30 years as an advanced hobbyist furniture maker. I’ve been around both woodworking and metalworking machinery for 50 years. Yes, I would have preferred a “made in the US” machine, but I would have paid 4 or 5 times the price of this one. Would I have gotten 4 or 5 times the value? I doubt it.

    Got it, ripped the covers off of it, and use it on a 1-3/4″ block of wood to use a 10″ narrow wire wheel, and a 6″ 3M deburring wheel. Here is what I see after a month of heavy use…1 HP motor will not bog down, now even with a 10″ wheel and tons of pressure grinding away at rust. I lay into it. And it outperforms a 3/4 HP handily.Well built! The 5/8″ Arbors are heafy. Also, they come with cast iron arbor spacers and heavy nuts. Pro tip.. buy some 5/8 ID washers to make the most out of distance from the frame.The light sucks. Does not put out enough light. Only negative I could find.Do yourself a favor and 1) rip off the bottom cover and the crap rubber feet, 2) remount the capacitor to the frame with a drilled hole and a self tapping screw, 3) drill holes downward through the frame, and 4) DRYWALL SCREW THAT PUPPY DOWN! These are too powerful to be vibrating around on rubber feet. Screw it in!Overall, very happy. Lots of power for under a few hundred dollars.Sell the stones on ebay for $15 and sell the covers for $30 and you have a winderful polisher / wire wheel rust cleaner.Good luck!
