I must say, at this point though, that aside from the wobble issue, the whole grinder seems very well built and is incredibly "Beefy." I was very impressed with the cast iron wheel housings and tool rests, ... much better than the stamped sheet metal on cheaper models. The unit was nice and heavy and did not budge during normal use just sitting on its rubber feet on my workbench. The motor seemed very powerful and did not bog down at all under any normal usage.
I sent the machine back to Amazon for a return (which went very smoothly), in hopes that the second machine would live up to earlier reviews in regards to smoothness. The second machine was much better, but there was still a slight wobble, maybe 1/16" visible upon slow rotation of the wheels by hand. The noise and vibration during operation was much less noticeable than the earlier machine.
Looking more closely at the construction and possible culprits, it appeared to me that the stamped "cup" flanges on either side of the wheels may not have been stamped perfectly flat/true from one surface to the other.Read more ›
The tool rests are cast iron, which I viewed as a selling point. However, they are minimally adjustable, and cannot be raised at or above center. This makes the grinder difficult to use for grinding lathe cutting tools and drill bits. Large non-precision items such as axes and mower blades are not a problem.
The accessory parts are all there and easy to install. I highly recommend this is you're looking for a bench grinder.
I also think the tool rests are in the wrong position, too low. They should be in line with the grinding wheel shaft not below it ,In my opinion. I had to re mount them.
Runs fine no other thing wrong, nice long cord.
Showed up with wheels needing very little truing and running very smooth, because of this it will live for a few months on my bench as all I really need it for is sharpening TIG tungstans. If I needed it for anything more, it would be going back today, as always should have simply sucked it up and spent money for a real tool, not this cobbled together chinese garbage.
Jet is dead, simple as that, no real value, no real quality.

Nice grinder, smooth running. Tool rests are good, but castings are not perfect (still better than the Baldor I originally ordered!!!) Good value.Published 1 month ago by sciguy
Garbage. Bolts are painted and over torqued. It's a bench grinder and changing the wheels should maybe be accounted for. Read morePublished 2 months ago by TJ H
