I was suspicious of getting an 8-inch grinder for a little more than $100. I only ordered this one because my brother has the same grinder and told me it works fine. He was here when I plugged the grinder in and he couldn't believe how poorly it ran. His tool is older so maybe he bought his when DeWalt still cared about quality. This makes me suspicious of ALL DeWalt tools.
UPDATE: While waiting for UPS to pick up the grinder for return, we spent some time diagnosing the problem(s). The cone washers that hold the wheels are stamped and, as others have noted, they aren't necessarily flat/true. But we also found that the shoulder on the shaft that the inside cone washer seats against had a high spot on it. So even if I replaced or machined the cone washers, the wheel would never run true.
These are simple machines: no gears or complex mechanisms, just a motor with an extended shaft. It's almost harder to make it wrong than to make it right. It's not a "made in China" problem. The Apple computer I'm using to write this review was also made in China and it's a beautifully crafted machine. It's a failure by DeWalt to ensure their products adhere to even modest QA/QC standards.
My 36 grit wheel has excessive run out, which creates vibration. It's serviceable, but the resulting vibration kills bearings. I will change out the wheel before it shorten's the tools lifespan. At this price, DeWalt ought to ship a better wheel, or charge $5 more, of you have too. This is easily fixed, yet DeWalt seems to be ignoring the problem. Not good for your reputation, folks.
I've recently started purchasing more Bosch and other products over the DeWalt. They are well engineered and I've had better lifespan and performance from them. Too bad, I prefer to buy American, but I'm not paying 5 star prices for 4 star gear. Quit being cheap lazy and fix the wheels quality issue.
Well, like many homeowners, I have a lawn, trees ,and bushes that need trimming. Which means I also have a number of tools with blades that need sharpening. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know this is way overkill for such things, but I'm also very lazy... Plus, I got a $100.00 gift card for completing an online survey about some of the tools (software applications) I use at work. So, why not overkill!!!
I really like this grinder; it made short work of sharpening the lawnmower blades, and after two seasons of use, they really needed it. Removed all the nicks and left a nice edge. It took just a couple minutes, no messing around with files, or grinder attachments on the end of a drill. Also, gotta love the cool sparks and sounds. I took the liberty of adding a punch to yea o'l man card.
After the lawnmower blade was done, the hunt was on!!! Hedge trimmer, branch snippper thing, chips on flat head screw drivers, shovel, hoe... Oh boy is it fun. Was actually a bit sad once I ran out of obvious things to have a go on.
As a home gamer, the thing sits around in the off position 99% of the time, but for that 1% it sure is handy. So many random things come up. like this screw is too long, or if only I had a scrap piece of metal I could use as a shim to level the wall mount my tv is hung on, wait I have this piece of metal but it's too long. Bench Grinder to the rescue!
Okay, now for the bad... The tool rests are bleh! Difficult to adjust quickly, and not exactly precision manufactured. Still, there good enough for the quality of work I do. A built in light would have been nice, but the lack of the light gives me an excuse to order a nice LED light for my workbench. Just need to find some survey's to complete.
In conclusion. This is awesome and way more than what's needed for the average suburban homeowner. I can't comment on how it would work in an industrial or professional shop setting, but if you just want something that spins, makes a nice humming sound, and will keep your tool sharp... Saves some money, don't take it to the professional that stands on the corner. Self serve and do it over and over again, for about the same price.
