Now, regarding the issue that the grinder is made in Taiwan, which it is, it seems that many reviewers demand a made-in-USA grinder at a made-in-China price. Unfortunately you can't have it both ways. Thankfully, Chinese and Taiwanese manufacturing is excellent if such quality is ordered by the buyer, which in this case is Jet, and that is the situation here. In my opinion you can pay 4-5x the price for a USA-made Baldor grinder, or you can buy this Jet grinder for much less, but you're getting awfully similar quality with either option.
It purrs like a kitten, running smooth and quiet, but grinds like a tiger with no bogging down when I lay metal to it. Wonderful tool that will outlive me.
I am so glad I bumped the budget up to a Jet.
Had bought a Ryobi 8" grinder (BG828G) from Home Depot, it shook so bad it was completely unusable (on a pedestal stand it just wanted to dance across the floor) , the only good part of it was the LED lights. I guess you get what you pay for.
Actually now that I think about it the Ryobi grinder might make a good paint shaker...
