Amazon.com

The DELTA GR275 6-inch Variable Speed Grinder with Tool-Less Change incorporates three different wheels for sharpening, grinding, and buffing. It features a 2.5 Amp induction-type motor for powerful performance, and has a variable speed of 2000 to 3450 RPM for a fine level of control depending on the materials you are working with. The white sharpening wheel is used for sharpening tools and chisels, and its tool rest has a drill bit rest milled into the surface so you'll get the correct angle on the tip at all times. A nut and tool-less wheel cover makes changing wheels quick and easy. The base is made of cast iron for durability and stability. An independently switched 40-watt work lamp with a flexible goose neck illuminates the work area while you're working. A full-size safety shield is clear and has thumb screws for easy adjustment.

I ordered this grinder on the 2nd, received it on the 8th with the free super saver shipping option. Along with the lower price, these two factors alone helped make this a very good deal. I am fairly new to woodworking and have accumulated a number of chisels/carving tools that require sharpening before use. Pre-sharpened chisels are nice, but they come at a price that is beyond my limited budget.

Here is the breakdown -

This grinder is advertised specifically for sharpening. The variable speed is an important feature as it limits the possiblity of burnout on the tools. The grinder comes with a white sharpening disc, regular grinding disc and buffing pad. All I need is some buffer compound and I pretty much have everything I need for sharpening on the grinder.

Tool rests provide enough maneuverability to sharpen shorter tools as well as longer chisels without having to make a jig to hold the small tools closer to the disk. Assembly was pretty straight forward, took me about 15 minutes to get it together and running. Nice change of pace for those like me that have purchased much cheaper tools in the past and have had to make sense of mimeograph quality instructions and a slew of nuts and bolts that do not seem to fit properly half the time.

I give it only 4 stars instead of 5 due to the short length of the light (already noted in other reviews) and the fact that the toolrests are not interchangeable. The rest next to the white stone has indentations made for drill bits. Nice feature except for the fact that my small chisels can fall into the gap while grinding. Would have been nice to be able to swap rests instead of swapping grinding disks.

Amazing delivery by Amazon, ordered it on Saturday afternoon and received it Monday morning. Somehow Amazon is getting its elves and FedEx to work the weekend. No I didn't ordered with anything more special than Amazon Prime.

I justified this purchase by saying that it would pay for itself. Soon I will sell the wife's golf clubs which had accumulated the normal wear and tear but nothing dramatic. I knew that if I could give them a proper buffing job I could bring them back to "nearly new" however to do meant getting a new tool. The Delta GR275 fit comfortably in my $100 budget especially considering that it had a buffing wheel included. Assembled the grinder in a few minutes but had to take off one wheel to install the buffing wheel. The tooless feature mentioned does not really work as claimed. Were the wheels and accessories exactly the same thickness and the quick release toggle nuts machined more carefully then it might work as claimed. As it is the folk at the factory do use tools to tighten the nuts by screwing the left nut (lefthand thread) against the right (righthand thread) squeezing everything in the middle. I know this because my left grinding wheel was too tight such that the supplied wrench and another one I had would only bend when faced with the torque required to budge the nut. Luckily I had some big Channelock pliers I could use on the big washer under the quick release nuts and broke it loose with a screwdriver as advised in the manual. Releasing the levers on the tightly screwed nut had no effect on reducing the disassembly torque. I don't really see this as a problem as I had low expectations of the feature and knew that I could take it apart using the typical techniques used with these tools.

Extremely satisfied with the product and the speed of delivery. The grinder is well balanced and has low vibration. The speed control is excellent for sharpening my turning tools and then turn up the speed to grind heavy steel. Excellent price and the tooless change capability makes it easy to swap wheels. I would recommend to anyone over higher priced options.

I have no significant complaints about the product. It is what you would expect for a middle of the road home shop grinder. The flexible light needs to be a few inches longer in order to fully illuminate the tool rest platform. There are shadows because the light doesn't reach far enough.

The fore and aft adjustments to the tool rest platform are poorly thought out and require a wrench. The supplied wrench doesn't reach the back bolts very well (there needs to be an offset bent into the wrench). You can't reach it either with a socket wrench because there is not enough clearance with the motor housing. I don't even see why they use hex bolts when it would be much better to have knobs.

The grinder itself runs smoothly and the variable speed works well.

My biggest complaint is that the Delta grinder stand that was sold with this grinder does not fit (bolt pattern doesn't line up) and I will have to fabricate an adapter plate.

I purchased this unit and found a couple problems with it. For one, they left a burr on the arbor that caused the left wheel to tilt noticably - not very good at 3500RPM! Also, both wheels were labeled identically, even though they were obviously different grits, and different colors. Needless to say, this unit went back, and my desire for Delta gear has lessened.

I will say that the dual-speed option is very nice. I almost kept it to make it into a buffing station, but figured I could save several dollars by not buying wheels or guards.

On another note, I purchased this to use with a Wolverine sharpening system. None of the current Delta units will work with the Wolverine since the mounting holes do not allow one to center the Wolverine base unit centered directly under the wheel.
