The Value of a 1/2 Horsepower Bench Grinder

Several years ago I picked this up from my father, who'd had it for as long as I can remember. I've had it for many years and it was a permanently attached to my workbench until I rearranged the garage to make way for the motorcycle lift. I was tempted to get rid of it at that time, but my son Steve suggested that I probably didn't want to get ride of it. It was good advice.

Since then I haven't had a permanent place for it and have been using it on the floor. It's amazing how many opportunities there are to use a nice bench grinder.

Earlier this week, I picked up a new stand at Harbor Freight for about $30 that works out very well for the bench grinder. I'm convinced this is another convenient tool to have in the garage.
