Cheap Bench Grinder £19.99 - Screwfix

Found 24th Apr 2015
Agreed its a non brand, but so far seems good, have used to sharpen lawn mower blade, sharpen axe and repair all my broken flat head drivers. Easy to set up and small enough to store away out of sight. - Had to use "Collect next day" but no issues here. - Hopefully someone else will find this useful.

Looks good!

isn't this just the normal price...?

I have tried ordering for next day collection but each time 99p gets added to the cost, is this normal? I can't see any reason for it.

Looks alright

If so it's pretty good anyway for a bench grinder?

Any good for katana blades?

Only if you are looking to trash them. I would stick to sharpening with water stones.

Don't be a whiner. Lots of people have swords and various blade collections. They get dull and need sharpening.

grinder? I barely know her.

In a word NO you hone blades you don't grind them, the localised heat anneals the steel making it soft you want a wet one for fine knives and blades.

They all look the same. Just branded differently.

Wear safety goggles (obvs) , don`t plunge grind (the motor will prob. stall on these first , but it`s still bad safety practice) , don`t use the side of the wheel - the wheels are stressed to be used from the front only (if you must use the side , I`d advise using only a light force) , if you`re changing wheels on them , then read up what to check before doing it (in work , you need to have gone on a course to do this) , try to use the width of the wheel (ie don`t groove them) . I`ve seen two of these wheels explode (correct word) from misuse , pants were s***t .
Wear gloves unless you are used to grinding and the heat/metal sparks on your fingers/hands and ALWAYS adjust the rest to be as close to the wheel as possible and keep the guard down - learn from someone elses accidents

There's an app for this?? Grinder

new lawnmower blades are about £20 when all they usually need is a sharpen up, get this and save some money

Seems the same grinder is sold under a wide range of brands for the same sort of price. Choose your colour or guarantee basically. Just to add to the mix here it is again at Amazon;

amazon.co.uk/Sil…der

This time with free delivery. Reading the comments though 150W seems to be under-powered so you are probably better off paying a bit more to get something that will do a better job and last longer.

Cheaper at Amazon even with delivery included so the screwfix one isn't a huge bargain. Only a few months ago I think Lidl were doing a combined grinder and belt sander with a 240W motor for £29.99. Ok 50% more and not available at the moment but those who don't need one currently might be worth waiting for that. Alternatively 200W bench grinders aren't a lot more expensive.

Actually this one looks really good. Getting on close to 2x the wattage and a water trough for cooling to protect the metal. Looks a bargain for this type of bench grinder.

screwfix.com/p/e…494

Surely that's the better deal as its very good spec for only £29.99.

If your Katana is so cheap that you'd present it to one of these, it's probably not safe to swing around.
A cheaply made Chines Katana has a tang that is spot welded onto the blade and they're intended for display only. You start swinging it about and you risk having the newly sharpened blade detach and do serious harm to people or property.
A decent sword will either be a kenjutsu practice blade or a an already razor sharp bade that shouldn't need sharpening.

Your advice was useless, I took my blade into Waterstones and the wife behind the counter ran out screaming. Next thing I knew armed response had me in cuffs.

When it comes to grinders, I think I'll stick to my plastic one

Good Price.

Or use an angle grinder to sharpen it and then you don't need to take the blade off the lawnmower.
