Experience the pleasure of using sharp cutting tools like never before with this 8" Grinder/Sharpener. Sharpen like a pro in no time for the best cutting edges imaginable! Don't worry about burning your fine cutting edges, the T10097A draws a fine sheet of water up from the water tray to dissipate heat and keep the grinding wheel clean and efficient. A multi-positional tool rest and square edge sharpening jig accepts a variety of cutting tools for ultra-precise grinding, and the leather stropping wheel removes fine burrs and polishes the cutting edge to an unbelievable sharpness. Ideal for wood chisels, carving chisels, lathe tools, plane irons, scissors, knives, axes and more!

This upgraded A edition brings even more to love about this grinder, featuring a mechanical belt tensioner, a threaded micro adjuster post for the tool rest height, and a different stropping wheel design for better drive. These have all been updates requested over the years by our valued customers - you asked for them, and we listened!

Machine is decent. The wheel is awful. I replaced it after the first day of use with a different brand I had to enlarge the hole to fit but it a good compromise.

Ok, for the price
3/ 5stars

Once I received my machine upon setup notice the bore hole that was in the stone was not cut properly and caused the water stone to wobble on the machine.

A true piece of junk
5/ 5stars

This product is a good example of very poor construction. The ring test is absurd. You remove the grinding wheel, tie it on a piece of string and whack it with a wood mallet or screwdriver handle looking for the proper ping. You are asked to do this each and every time you use the product. There is more. Don't waste your money. You have to pay a restocking fee when you return it. It goes on and on.

I don't know what took me so long to get this. I set it up right away when it arrived and sharpened all my wood chisels.What a difference! The slow RPM wheel coupled with the water cooling made it simple to grind without worry of ruining the temper on my tool's edges. The price as considerably better than the competing model grinders too.

good product
4/ 5stars

happy with unit--water tray leaves a lot to be desired, but it does sharpen and burnish well

5/ 5stars

This machine plus included grindstone cost less than $150 and does a great job sharpening my wood turning chisels.

i should have purchased the 10" unit. I have had a difficult time keeping the wheel turning true. i thought i had it fixed at one point but to no avail.

4/ 5stars

This unit is a good compromise for the hobbyist. The adjustments on the tool rest are a little less than adequate for smaller wood chisels, but for large lathe tools it's probably just fine.

Great Grinder / Sharpener

I have had this sharpener on my bench for about a month and every tool in my shop now has a razor edge! Very happy with the quality and usefulness of this tool. Thanks again Grizzly.

Great product, easy to use and does a great job. I would suggest getting the accessory sharpening kit right away because after you use this machine, you are going to want everything you own as sharp as possible. Only thing I did not like is that it drips a lot of water. I solved this by placing the whole machine on a shallow pan to contain the water.

Pretty good, and fast.

I am still learning how to use this to its full capability. So far I have only sharpened some chisels and plane irons. I have found that this is really great for very dull edges, but to really sharpen the edge back to what I've been able to do with sharpening stones I have to use fine and extra fine stones after I've gotten the sharpest edge on the grinder. I've also found that it's a bit tricky getting the blade properly aligned in the edge holder in order to get an edge square to the axis of the tool. Still, it's quicker than sharpening all by stones, the water on the stone prevents destroying the temper in the edge, which I seem to do all too often despite taking precautions on a regular bench grinder, There are a number of tools that this is more than sufficient for, so it's a worthwhile addition to any shop where you need sharp hand tools.

Have not used it yet. Will let you know it works when I do. Still setting everything up.
