Rikon 80-805 Slow Speed Bench Grinder
The Rikon 80-805 Slow Speed Bench Grinder with 8″ wheel offers heavy duty grinding due to its 8″ diameter and 1″ width wheel. The Rikon 80-805 bench grinder is modeled with a smooth-start 1/2 HP motor operating at a no load speed of 1,750 RPM. The slow speed and large width make this grinder ideal for sharpening operations (among other uses). The combination of an 8-inch diameter wheel and slow grinding speed reduces heat build-up and minimizes the possibility of “bluing”, especially when you’re sharpening chisels and other tools.
The Rikon 80-805 Slow Speed Bench Grinder comes with two 1″ x 8″ white aluminum oxide grinding wheels. One wheel is 120-grit, and the other wheel is a much coarser 60-grit composition. It also comes with a diamond wheel dresser for use to true the grinding wheels before using or starting your next grinding operation. The Rikon slow speed bench grinder is equipped with a cast iron base that features anti-vibration rubber feet and mounting holes for convenient attachment to a workbench or grinder stand.
In addition, the Rikon 80-805 Slow Speed Bench Grinder features a polycarbonate eye shields that can be adjusted to stay put but can still be easily moved by hand. The 80-805 bench grinder comes with tool rests, eye shields, spark arrestors, a 6 ft. power cord, and 5-year warranty. Also available is the optional Rikon bench grinder stand 80-910.
Also, the bench grinder has sealed lubricated bearings in the motor housing that do not require any additional lubrication from the operator.
