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

by Chris Gochnour

review date: April 5, 2012

Like those on the General International, the tool rests on the Grind2X are not a bright spot. Each is a one-piece casting that can move in and out, but lacks an adjustable platform (one platform also has a drill bit trough cast into it). The platforms are relatively flat, but because they can’t be angled, grinding a chisel or plane iron evenly is a big challenge. The plastic shields had a hard time staying put while the machine was running.
