Porter Cable 8" Bench Grinder

MINDLESS BORING: A look at the Porter Cable 8" Bench Grinder pcb575BG. No home machine shop would be complete without a Bench Grinder. This 8" grinding wheel model, with variable speed motor from Porter Cable is a great choice, and comes with an attached light, spark guards and tool rests. The Porter Cable 8" Bench Grinder comes pre-fitted with 2 grinding wheels, one each coarse and fine aluminum oxide grinding wheels. A silicon carbide (black or green) grinding wheel will be needed to sharpen carbide tooling.
The pcb575BG has a very heavy base for either bench top or pedestal mounting, and has cast rests opposed to the stamped steel on the cheaper bench grinders on the market. = SHARE ROCKNTV1
