I was very disappointed with the quality of the leather strop and stone wheel.
I would consider other products before purchasing this unit.
I have been wanting one for a few years and finally decided that my tools couldn't wait any longer. Works like a charm
I use mine for knifes I make. All of them are sharp enough to shave with after using this thing. Highly recommended. Also I use a tormek jig and it works well with this sharpener.
I got a low end water stone sharpener that has an out of round wheel... I paid a decent price for it on sale, I got a decent item. The wheel being out of true/round seems to be an issue with them. There does not seem to be recourse via the company, so I guess caveat emptor.
Bought a month ago and am happy with the product. Was disappointed with the delivery the exterior packaging was unblemished, however, the interior box was soaking wet. Device works as expected.
A wet wheel is the best for sharpening hands down. That is the way history says to do it and it is proven. The affordability makes the also a great deal.
A substantial grinder, and superb service when it counts!
This wet grinder seems to be pretty good for the money. Haven't used it much yet and I've never used that expensive one made by T. Most other reviews that I read recommended using T. sharpening accessories with this grinder (they are compatible).
I've been needing this for many years. I finally got it as a gift. Getting ready to sharpen everything that has a blade; in my shop AND in the kitchen. Having fun with my new toy!
Really great price, fast delivery and very pleased w/product!
Honestly, this is a near or exact duplicate of the other machines out there that look very similar. I did purchase on a large order as it was on sale here. The packaging was all formed Styrofoam, nothing was just piled into heaps - everything had its spot. Arrived show room ready. Assembly is straight forward(make sure to cut zip tie and take out the foam found on an instruction slip that no one will ever read, ha) and was very intuitive if you have watched any YT videos on it. As many before me might have concerns over, the grind wheel does wobble a little bit, but so far I could not find any impact to straightness of the edge. After about 60 seconds on the grinder and a quick 10 seconds to leather strop, i was able to achieve glass smooth hand planed surfaces. Chisels are the same. Doesn't get edges "scary sharp" without a lot of time investment and a wheel dresser, but if the surface is left finish ready what more do you need? 5 star in my book, worth the investment and little amount of money, considering the competitors cost.
The unit arrived on time and in good condition. I made some simple modifications to improve overall performance. I used emery cloth to polish the main shaft surfaces that contact the bushings and applied a light lubricant. I fabricated a simple method of securing the drive motor out of contact with the rubber drive wheel when the unit is not being used. This prevents the rubber wheel from being deforming from the weight of the drive motor shaft being in constant contact at rest. Overall, I am pleased with the value and performance of the unit.
This thing sat in the box since Christmas, and I just set it up today. I bought the wheel dresser from the company that starts with "T" (it fits perfectly on the bar), and I had bought the jointer/planer blade sharpener from Grizzly too. It was a bit of a challenge to get everything set up square. First, I squared the bar, then I dressed the wheel, then I removed the bar and installed the planer blade sharpener carriage, and squared it up. I had a set of three 6"X3/4"X1/8" jointer blades to sharpen, one of which had a sizable gouge in it from a staple. I mounted the blade and had to mess a bit with getting the carriage height set for the angle of the blade. Once that was done, I filled the trough with water, and turned on the grinder, and proceeded to slide the carriage back and forth, grinding the blade against the wheel. In maybe 15 minutes, much to my surprise, the gouge was gone. I then polished the back of the blade on some 400 grit sandpaper, and the blade was scary sharp. Did the other two, and they're ready whenever I need to change out my other set that's in the jointer. This grinder is a winner.
Tried it out and found the only limitation is my limited experience. I plan to change that. Nice to have in my shop instead of borrowing one.
Well, it seems to be a well built product and was a reasonable price.
I understand that wet grinders spin at a slower speed to keep the heat down but at this rate I'd spend most of a day sharpening.Was hoping it was a little faster process.
My Grinder arrived quickly and in good shape. The wheel runs true. and overall it appears like a nice tool. Thankyou grizzly.
The grinder works as advertised in providing a sharp edge quickly. It could be so much better if they just put a little bit more effort in the jigs to hold the tool being sharpened.
I needed a good grinder to sharpen my turning tools. Works great! Solid built, quiet running.
I like this grinder! Slow speed and the stone's water bath have kept my tools cool while sharpening cutting edges and blades. The price is incredible versus the competition's prices.
this is an ok grinder.I own many Grizzly products mainly because of price. There are issues with each one. The thing with this machine..its not complete. Its bare bone and you cannot sharpen with what you get you have to purchase more. The stone that is included will not give a finished edge even with the supplied sgtropping wheel. There is a stone that has to be purchased in order to get a finer finish. The angle is trash and very hard to understand even after reading the booklet and calling customer support. They just read right out of the booklet no help. I ended up buying additional acccessoiries from another big brand that do work on this machine. I should of just bought that the first time rather than trying to save a few bucks
This thing is incredible. I wasn't sure if i was pleased with the grinding wheel but it's perfect. I have about 30 hours on it already doing my households knives, pocket knives, tools and the inlaws kitchen knives.
the strop wheel it's as effective as other stops i have but it's very nice and i do use it to clear the bur. this machine is great. i'm really happy with it. I kind of wish i would have got one years ago.
I am really impressed by how well this grinder works. The directions are limited, but online videos are helpful. I would definitely recommend this purchase versus the other product which cost 3 times the price
This machine works great. Make sure you buy a grader stone to true and score the grind stone.
I expected better quality from Grizzly products, look at youtube reviews before purchase!! No bearings on shaft, just a sleeve. It gets the job done, just not sure how long it will last!!
Great product. About as close to plug and play as you can get. I did buy the T jigs for sharpening and my chisels and lathe tools are like a razor.
Like any new tool, it took a little to get the feel of the machine but there's no flies on this product. Thanks Grizzly for another great product as always.
Bar needed realigned with grinding wheel in "slow grind / hone" position; otherwise an excellent bargain.
had for 3 weeks now and not too happy with the product. honing compound sucks, saver wobble with the wheel that took a lot of work to adjust the wobble " still has a slight wobble" not sure if the wobble is from the arbor. strong motor though. for only $130 compared to a $500 torkmek not too bad but u get what u pay for. bigger water tray would be nice too.
Although it is now 2018, I bought mine at the Springfield store in early 2016, but just recently had the opportunity to use it. I lived overseas for many years and in moving back to the USA, I have had delays in setting up my shop for efficient use. Soon after the purchase and bringing it home, I immediately pulled it out of the box and checked it out, particularly for wobble. It did have some visible wobble to the grinding wheel, so I set out to correct it, which wasn't too difficult. I set a stand next to the stone and a screw next to the top edge and rotated the wheel. There was about 1/8" of lateral movement with a each revolution. I loosened the nut, made a reference/registration mark on the shaft, and rotated the wheel by 1/8th of a turn, tightened the nut and checked again. I did this (1/8th turn) for a full 360°. There were two points in which the wobble was negligible and I tightened the wheel at the point and checked again. That was 2 years ago. I recently completed the work in my shop and first two items to install were the dust collector system and Wet Grinder for sharpening tools.
I cannot believe how good this tool is. I have read and know from experience that tools are only as efficient as the user. I have had a 1750 RPM grinder for a long time. With this Grizzly grinder, I had to adjust my attitude at little. It takes longer on the wet grinder to arrive at a full grind on a chisel (wood or lathe) than on a 1750 grinder. The advantage is that it does NOT get hot. I felt the edges of my chisels after a full face grind and was happy with the sharpening. However, I knew the edges were not where they needed to be. I then used the paste and leather for honing. This dramatically increased the sharpness, but it was still not where I wanted it (and I knew it would not be at its sharpest). For years, I have done a final HAND honing of my tools. I have 9 micron, 1 micron and .3 micron sharpening sandpaper that I then swipe the tools across to finish sharpening. The Grizzly Wet Grinder makes it so much easier and faster to get to the final stage of hand honing, and the fact that the tool stays cool during sharpening (and the grind is washed away) the tool HOLDS the edge longer.
The right attachment is needed for each kind of tool to be sharpened. This is not fool proof. It takes some observational skills and some thinking combined with experience, very much like driving a car and knowing when to speed up, slow down and turn. The Grizzly Wet Sander gets a FULL 5 stars from me.
This machine is easy to use.
It's helped considerably with my sharpening needs- mostly chiseled and plane blades.
Most issues are with the water tray. difficult to get into the higher notches, and cannot be held in the lower (storage) notches at all. Either the notches are too low in the metal or the tray is too tall. The tray should be made with a wider top so it catches more of the water. Runs ok and the tool rest was fairly square with the wheel when it came.
You have to buy the kit # 1 to be able to sharpen knives etc. That should be explained upfront. The wet wheel and speed is excellent, wish I had this product 25 years ago.
can't be sure? still waiting for jigs ! you keep putting them on back order . for the second time!
Only problem I have is the Stone came with a chip out of it so quality control isnt 100% but machine is awesome
I have wanted a Tormek grinder since Norm Abrahms built the sharpening center on NYW. Kept thinking maybe the price would go down where I could afford one. Decided to try this Grizzly Grinder and could kick myself for not buying this grinder years ago! I need it for my chisels and plane irons and probably wont sharpen knives with it. I read all the reviews before buying. Having said that, I received the grinder with no (nada) issues with shipping or packaging. Took it out of the box, scanned user info, plugged it up and sharpened a very dull chisel! Within a couple hours had sharpened half a dozen chisels and three plane irons. All wicked sharp!!
Yes the wheel wobbles a little. Yes it has bushings instead of bearings. Yes it makes a mess if you work from the front of the grinder. But!!! If you have have a little common sense and any mechanical aptitude this is a fantastic grinder especially for the price!!
For chisels and plane irons work from the back of grinder, get a finer finish. Apply lots of honing paste to leather strop and when you think your done, strop some more!!
Dont wait, if you have been looking at this grinder, order it today! You wont be disappointed!
It works well for my wood lathe chisels. I am disappointed that I cannot sharpen knives properly without ordering a knife blade holder separately.
Ive had it a week and have sharpened several knives and antique hand planes. So far so good. Great product for the money
Yes I got this and glade I did it helps me with my wood turning, one thing i would like to see is a plate that can be tilted and locked into place with diferent tools.
Though it is much less expensive than the Tormek, it does a good job with sharpening plane irons, and chisels. Only complaint is the drive wheel is a soft rubber that will develop a flat spot where the motor shaft rest when not in use. This results in an annoying thumping sound when operating it. There needs to be some sort of retraction mechanism to move the motor from the wheel so it does not leave an imprint on the drive. The noise is very distracting.
I bought this a couple of weeks ago along with the sharpening tool kit(jig) for the grinder . I got the grinder in about 5 days and after another week I called to find out were my tool set was cause if you want to use the grinder you have to have the jigs right? Anyways the tool set was backordered till Feb of 2018 so I canceled it because I wasn't going to look at the grinder everyday and not be able to use it. The Tormek grinder and tools are almost the same and the jigs work just the same on either one . Of course the Tormek jig are a lot more (almost twice) but you do get a extra jig for round skew chisels and gouges. Anyway everyone talks about how great these are at sharpening , I gotta be honest not impressed. I spent 20 minutes sharpening a de-boning knife and it never got sharp The bevel was there but it just wasn't sharp . So I put it on my 1000 grit oilstone for 20 passes on both sides and then it was sharp. Here's the deal , I bought this because my wife owns a restaurant and I have to keep 20 knives really sharp. My wife is not very nice to her knives so its a everyday job. I can sharpen a knife in 5 minutes on a 3 stone oilstone set up . It would take me 4 times longer and still have to finish on the 1000 grit stone or a diamond steel. I idea was it would make them sharper but trust me it doesn't. I would like to add to my review which never actually appeared anywhere on the web site . I guess when you don't give glowing reviews they never make it to their website? Anyway I have used this now for a month and it works alright for getting a bevel which you can then finish by hand , but one thing I have noticed is the leather stropping wheel is to small and when you turn the guide around if the knife is more then say 6 inches long the handle of the knife runs into the 10 inch grinding wheel. This is when I ask myself does anyone who designs this stuuff ever actually use it?
I was excited to get this tool at the price that was offered. Overall, it has done more than I expected.
I purchased this unit along with the accessory kit for sharpening various knives and etc. The grinder arrived just fine but did not come with the accessory kit. I called Grizzly just to learn the accessories were backordered for nearly 6 months. That's probably the reason the unit is on sale for 149.00. The unit is now collecting dust in the corner of my shop. I made several calls to Grizzly with no resolution and the promise of a return call from a manager which never happened. A few days later I received a return label courtesy of Grizzly. However it stipulated that the unit needed to be in New, unused condition. I had already used the grinder at the advice of one of the folks that I spoke with from Grizzly who said I could just use the grinder "freehand". What a joke. Ruined a good knife. I've purchased a number of tools and equipment from Grizzly but this time grizzly didn't make the grade.
I just started a project that requires a variety of sharp hand tools - chisels, gouges, and specialized planes. The Grizzly T10010 has helped me keep the entire collection in tip-top shape. Grizzly switched out two components in a courteous and expeditious manner. I'm very happy with is useful and reasonably-priced tool.
I received this yesterday. The leather strop wheel is not actually round, and the sharpening wheel is made of the softest material I've ever seen for a stone. "Keeps its shape"? Not if you look at it the wrong way. The options for use are to either get water everywhere during use, or turn it around so the wheel rotates away from you, putting the on off switch on the opposite side. I'd return it, but I'm pretty sure Grizzly would say these are not defects and then I'd also be out shipping. I'm having a very hard time understanding how anyone gives this abomination a decent rating.
Excellent sharpener. Sharpened all my chisels (16) in a half hour. Highly recommend.
I have used this for about a month. I mounted mine horizontally so I could use the flat surface and I bought a Makita 1000 grit stone that bolts right on with a minor modification. I also made some leather wheels I charged with black and green compound.
With this, I can do everything I was doing by hand in a lot less time. Makita makes a 7" unit like this but it would have cost ~ $600 with all the stones.
This tool is definitely worth what I paid.
For those of us who can't or won't pay for the big name brand, this is a perfectly acceptable alternative. Yes, you have to tweak it a little but the grinding wheel was round and true and gave excellent results. The only shortcoming I can find is the crude machining of the main shaft and bearings. I took steps to correct this before using the machine only to insure it would out last me !
Thought this would be up to Grizzly standards. It's not. Bushings instead of bearings. Stone has large groove in it and leather strop wheel is uneven and already starting to delaminate from backing wheel. Just not what I expected for quality. Although it works, it should have better quality I.M.O.
Sharpened wood chisels great and with ease. Knives are a little more difficult.
I bought this a month ago but have been too busy to use it. The box looks good and from what I can tell once I make some guides and jigs for it, I will be able to sharpen an number of different tools with more control than with the unit as it is now.
I bought this grinder January 2017.The grinder has been a great addition to my shop.I have sharpened all of my planer and jointer knives ,and every thing else to a razors edge .You will not regret buying this!
Very good investment, just make sure you buy the dresser wheel to go along with it.
Love this product. The only thing I have a problem with is a spring fell out of it on the right side and their was a nut and bolt with it I can't figure out where it goes? The spring is bent I don't know what it is. If you can send me a new one and or a picture where it goes I'd appreciate it
Depending on what you your sharping it works well for the price.Stone and angle tools are only OK in quality but for the basics it works. Repeatable precision angles are not its strong suite, but for one off and a little setup time it will do the trick. The shipping needs help! on arrival i found the Ty-rap that holds the shaft still during shipment was found broken causing the shaft and bearing to be out of place. If a non mechanic had received this , it would have been a issue.
I have quite a few pieces of Grizzly equipment in my shop and love them all. Unfortunately, this grinder missises the mark. While similar in design to the infinitely more expensive Tormek, I have been unable to set up and adjust it in such a way that it does nor splatter water beyond the front of the water reservoir and toward the back where it hits the tool being sharpened. As such it makes a watery mess on the surface of the bench on which I installed it. I would definitely say pass on this one.
Quality of the grinder was disappointing and more like Harbor Freight tools.
Well built and all of the guides and parts for the more expensive name brand unit fit. Did a fanatic job on my plane blades and our kitchen knives.
I have had fun sharpening everything in the shop. Easy to set up, easy to use. I can't believe I waited so long to buy this.
I use the Tormac grinder at school. This appears to be a good knock-off of the product. It arrived in great condition, well packed, and adequate instructions.
I have not had the machine long but seems to be performing well. I had read some reviews that suggested that there were some problems with alignment but I have not had any issues. The stone seems to be a little coarse but that has not been a problem.
My wonderful wife bought me this unit as a holiday present. Unfortunately it is very difficult to get s razor sharp square edge. I used a machinist square to make sure tool was sguare in holder. I also bought an upgraded tool holder. It had to be returned to grizzly for repair. It still does work properly. This unit is missing screw adjuster on horizontal bar for fine adjustment of the tool guide bar. (See Tormek). Also the water tray is to small. Water will splash all over your bench. My bench was flat. I had to recondition it.
Bought this a few weeks back, because I was tired of sharpening by hand on a flat stone, with mixed results. WOW!!!! Once I got it set-up, which took very little time, I was off and running. The ease , precision and results made sharpening fun. I dug out all my chisels and cutting tools and went to town. They haven't been this sharp since new and they give me beautiful results. This was a GREAT investment.
I have wanted this tool a long time. Know I can adequately sharpen so many things the right way and in a controlled manner.
My tools are quickly sharpened to a keen edge using this grinder and the available jigs and guides.
I've put off buying a grinder like this and wish I hadn't. This is a fine machine. Quiet, smooth, efficient. Works very well on my turning tools. It's actually a joy to be able to put a fine edge on the tools without heating them up like you do with conventional grinders. Great product. Wish I had bought it sooner.
My husband is very happy with this tool. We saw it in Bellingham and he wanted it for Christmas.
I like the grinder. It would have been better had it come with more accessories. I am, now in the process of learning how to use the grinder and also purchasing additional accessories. As with most wood working machines, the machine seem to be relatively inexpensive compared to the
additional tools needed to make the machine really work. The grinder seems to be well built and runs as advertised. Frank
Hey Fellow Consumers,
I have been looking at this type of sharpening system on other web pages for as much as $400.00 and up.
Wet stone is the best way to sharpen and keep temper on your steel. I usually hand sharpen my plane and chisel blades. On Arkansas,. diamond and ceramic stones works great! However it is time consuming and hard on the main bevel set. Tried small grinders with variable speed and seemed to loose control of bevel and over ground them wasting blade.
Now I can't be any happier with this T10010 anniversary system, I corrected all my wood working chisels in one setting, next all my plane blades the 110 rpm speed is great and I found the quality of the stone to be superior for the task. Always sweep side to side from edge to edge in order to keep wear the stones surface level and smooth. I hardly used any pressure to get the results I needed. In all Wow! I'm very happy! Also the price can't be any better, I would recommend this system to all wood workers and friends.
I just received my Wet Grinder, and so far I'm extremely pleased. The unit is heavy and solidly built. It has very good fit and finish and is well designed. It shipped to me in just a few days after ordering with no defects or missing parts. To me, the unit performs wonderfully. it's smooth, quite, and I was quickly able to sharpen a blade with great results, just minutes after getting the unit out of the box. If you shop around you'll find another brand, that sells a unit needly identical to this sharpener...but, at 3x's the cost! I've seen and used that unit, and I SO SO Happy I that I bought the Grizzly unit instead! It's every bit the quality, without the buyer remorse! Now, I plan on buying ALL the Grizzly attachments for this unit. Great Product, and Great Service Grizzly Guys!
