Bench Grinder for sharpening and general use.
I would like to purchase a bench grinder for sharpening turning tools and general use. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what type, size and grit would be the most effective/efficient. If I had to assign a priority as to how it will be used, I would lean more towards tool sharpening and less towards general purpose. I am also looking at buying an attachable sharpening jig to help set the appropriate grinding angles for lathe tools and chisels. Any thoughts on sharpening jigs would also be appreciated.
My budget for this purchase (including a sharpening jig if needed) is about $200.
So far I’ve only looked at a few different models and many include a wire brush or a buffing wheel, do you have these attachments and what do you use them for?
Finally, if there is a better option – that is – a completely different type of machine that I should consider, what do you recommend? Thanks.
