Editor's Review: Tool Test: Bench Grinders for Woodworkers

by Chris Gochnour

review date: April 5, 2012

The General International grinder is the only machine with a 3/4-in.-wide wheel. The tool rests can move in or out by loosening and tightening two bolts with a wrench, but they are cast roughly and can’t be angled in any way, making them almost useless. On the other hand, the General is a very smoothrunning grinder, with very little vibration (after adjusting the flange).
