Handy if needed and you've a store near you.

Can be ordered for delivery but the delivery charge takes it towards the same price you can pick one up from screwfix etc.

150w - plenty of power if you know what your doing!

Hope this helps somebody.

Good price but even if you know what you are doing, 150W is underpowered.
This will be useful for only the lightest of activities.

Agreed - I have a 150w one and you could almost stop it with your finger. Its ok for for very light work but anything substantial and it's worse than useless.

Would 150w be enough power to use it with buffing wheels for final polishing?

If you're polishing metal, absolutely not. When I was a teenager, I used to mirror polish stainless steel bolts/screws etc as a job after school - a pillar drill (600w) with sisal and felt mops were used and even then you could stop the rotation a bit too easily...

​Mostly only going to be polishing timber and plastics/resin. Noted though, as I sometimes have to polish up brass and nickel.
I have the Argos version, polishing is probably hard on a grinder than grinding, And this thing is uses really for grinding, Save your money, It's just not powerful enough.
It's more then enough for sharpening blades' lawnmower' screwdrivers' axes etc I've got one and it's fine the trick is to let the grinding wheels do the work and don't push the object to hard onto the wheels oO
I have a 150W grinder. It's fine for sharpening knives and garden tools. You could not stop it with your finger. Does exactly what I wanted it for. All knives in my house can now split atoms

Wow. They must all be ruined.
this is great deal
Heat added for the low price but 150W is very underpowered for a bench grinder. Probably fine for occasional light duty work, but far to weedy for buffing wheels and it would struggle with a wire wheel (which are really useful).
