    New Rikon 8" slow speed grinderr at woodcraft.

    I found this on another forum they replaced the 8" grinder they used to sell with a Rikon one.

    Comes with 120 and a 60 grit while wheel. For $99

    Good deal for someone looking for a grinder for sharpening on a budget

    Cool. Looks pretty identical to the old one they used to sell, and that is indeed a good price. The tool rests look pretty cheap and flexible, though. I removed the ones on mine and just use the flat rest that came with my PSI knockoff of a Wolverine sharpening jig

    Yep looks just like their old one. Most of the rikon stuff seems to get decent reviews hopefully the grinder follows suite.
