Rikon Bench Grinders
Rikon Bench Grinders are woodworking power tools that are used for sharpening tools or general grinding work. The 8in. bench grinders are available in 3 different style grinders, a 1/2 HP motor, 3/4 HP variable speed motor, and a 1 HP motor. These power tools operate at a low speed of 1,750 RPM so that the metal being removed can be controlled better. Low speed bench grinders will also reduce heat build-up and bluing of a cutting edge being sharpened, which will ruin the hardness and temper of the tool. An optional bench grinder stand is also available to raise the bench grinder to a standard working height without it being placed on a table or workbench.
