Bench Grinders

What are bench grinders?

Bench grinders are versatile tools that can be found in most workshops. They can be used for many different purposes, but are most commonly used for sharpening and grinding tools such as chisels and drill bits. They can also be used for roughly shaping metal before welding or fitting. 

How do bench grinders work?

Typical bench grinders have two grinding stones, one coarse and one fine, that spin rapidly. These can be used to sharpen tools or shape objects. There are variations that come with wire wheels or sanding belts in place of the second grinding stone. These are used for cleaning or sanding.

What are the benefits of bench grinders?

Bench grinders are versatile tools with many uses. These include:

  • Modifying parts that need to be reshaped
  • Sharpening blunt tools
  • Refurbishing old rusted parts
  • Shaping pieces of metal
  • Sanding wood
