This solidly made 200mm Trade rated grinder is fitted with a 60g grey and a 120g white aluminium oxide wheel, both 32mm wide and well suited to the edge tool grinding needs of the woodworker or turner. The speed is reduced to 1,425rpm thus reducing the peripheral speed and the potential to overheat the tool. The base is 200 x 320mm and has four fixing points. The 900W induction motor runs exceptionally smoothly and provides adequate power for all types of grinding. The guards are very solid and have 40mm diameter outlets at the rear for connection to an extraction system. The tool rests and eye shields are robustly made, the eye shields being fully adjustable to any position. Finally, to finish off a good job the grinder is fitted with an LED work light and no-volt-release switch. Please note, SIT Wire Brushes not compatible with this grinder.

bench grinder returnI recently had an issue with a bench grinder I purchased directly from axminster.I contacted axminster by phone and in the space of nine days the grinder was picked up by courier from my home, returned to the uk [I live in Ireland] and a new grinder sent back to me.I was very impressed with the people I dealt with and the speed of the service.

Perfect grinder for CBNs for WoodturnersThis grinder is perfect for woodturners, with some CBNs installed this grinder is powerful - gets up to speed quickly; is very quiet and minimal vibration as it is encouragingly large and heavy making it a pleasure to use. And as a bonus; 40mm wide CBNs can be fitted within the provided guards (safer than running wheels without guards) Thoroughly recommended

Axminster Trade Series AT8SRG2 Slow Running GrinderI purchased this grinder as my 500 W grinder was struggling with the two 8" CBN wheels, and it was high speed. This grinder is solidly made, and handles my CBN's like a stroll in the park. It is relatively quiet, and there is virtually no vibration when running, or winding down. A pleasure to use. Would highly recommend to someone looking for a quality grinder.

Long termI have had the previous version of this grinder for over two years (it appears to be identical to the current model apart from the colour) and it has worked without problem. I bought it to work alongside the wetstone grinder which is too slow for re-profiling work and knew from the start that the rests would be practically useless for turning tools and made independent rests which slide in t-slot grooves let into the baseboard, one of which has a horizontal rod to accept the bowl grinding jig from my wetstone grinder and the other an adjustable table for scrapers etc.

Axminster bench grinder limited ?I bought this grinder to reshape lathe chisels into negative grind variants and I chose this model because its half the speed of a normal bench grinder. So I wouldnt get so much of a heat build up. (plus Glenn Lucas has one) The gripe is though, that although this is squarely aimed at the wood turning fraternity, there is no way of controling the angle of the rests. They only go in and out. And have no inclination functionality whatsoever. That makes this otherwise excellent piece of kit absolutely useless out of the box for the purpose its sold for. What a shame. This is not the first time I’ve bought axminster or even Jet products and found them to be good but fall short of being great for the lack of forethought in just one simple area. I must be getting old.
