As half of my tools are Dewalt, I thought I should give the DW756 a try - what a disappointment! The motor casing is at the same level as the wheel (BTW, the picture Amazon has posted is in fact of the 8-inch one, so there are different proportions!!!), so when I tried sharpening a mulching mower blade (which has a small curvature) I was unable to, as I couldn't get the blade in the proper position. Also, this Dewalt looks as a fake one manufactured in the back of a shed somewhere in China - paint drippings, strange color, etc. This is a powerful grinder though, and it is probably excellent for grinding everything else other than oddly-shaped items.
I also had the opportunity to try to the Porter-cable 6" Variable Speed Bench Grinder with Light - at Lowes for 80 bucks, the 6" VARIABLE SPEED BENCH GRINDER 1/5HP- CRAFTSMAN at Sears for 100 bucks, and the Delta 23-198 6-Inch Variable Speed Grinder with Toolless Quick Change on Amazon for 120. First of all, these are all almost identical, probably made by the same factory. The only differences are the wheel covers (some easier to take off - Delta; some a complete nightmare to replace - Porter Cable), the knobs (Craftsman), and some of the accessories. Oh, the Delta has a nice toolless system to change the wheels (I uploaded a picture there as well), but it doesn't change the fact that it is 40 bucks more expensive than the Porter and it is basically the same grinder. Of the three would recommend the Craftsman if on sale (the Porter can drive you nuts trying to reinstall those wheel covers), but all three seem toys compared to the Dewalt or the Palmgren.
I also had the oportunity to the Palmgren 82061 6-Inch 1/3HP Bench Grinder with Wire Wheel, Dark Grey/Black, as there are some reviews mentioning its superiority over the Dewalt. Well, there is a huge improvement over the Dewalt indeed! There is superior craftsmanship - it feels and is very solid and well made. The wheel covers are thick cast aluminum compared to the shoddy Dewalt ones. The whole unit seems "svelte" - it is long and with a slim motor casing which allows for grinding or sharpening odd-shaped items (see the comparison pictures I uploaded). Also, this thing has very nice bearings - while the Dewalt would stop in a few seconds after being turned off (and whine while running), the Palmgren would still spin for a couple of minutes after turned off and it would run very quietly, with almost no noise. Also, there is a big difference in the resistance when spinning the wheels by hand between the two brands. There are two cons - one of the tools rests was not perpendicular to the wheel, and (as others noted) there is no wire wheel included as the title suggests. This is a great grinder and I definitely recommend buying it instead of the Dewalt!
Oh, be safe and wear goggles!
Yes, the instructions in the manual were a little difficult to inter-pet for the guard and accessory installation given the fact that the details were shown were on the microscopic side.
Just layout the parts as given, per left side and right side and all will go together OK. Like it did for me.
Those folks that say that the motor housing interferes with the sharpening of their full length swords and sickle blades and the such. Hey, just back to use a stone on them as I do.
With this unit being 4/5 HP, YES, the motor is a larger diameter than the 1/3HP, 2.1A units by a factor of two. But, Hey, you don't have to worry about the Dewalt DW756 bogging down as soon as you put a little pressure on the wheel.
This unit does not bog down for me, Go with the one of the 1/3HP 2.1A WEN or Palmgren grinders and you will experience what I've seen other complain about.
For me this Dewalt grinder works fine for sharpening small tools, mower blades, axes and the like. Happy with the purchase here.
