Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Very happy with this recent purchase. Used it recently for 1.5 hours continuously to grind points of steel rods. Unit was definitely warm at the end, but not horribly so. In our configuration, we changed out one of the grinding wheels with a wire wheel. It has enough power to deal with almost any applied pressure level. We reviewed a number of products/brands prior to purchase and almost every product had negative reviews related to grinder balance and vibration - this unit is great in that respect. Before bolting it to our bench, we plugged it in to test it. It comes up to speed quickly and runs quietly and without vibration. Unlike some other products/brands, with its rubber feet, there was no walking or shaking of the bench. The design of the JET-577102 allows one to remove the entire guard assembly on either side, as we did to mount a wire wheel. The wire wheel looked like it fit within the guard assembly, but when we rotated it by hand, a few bristles hit the side of the guard or the front bridge. It probably would have been OK, but I was concerned that with use more and more bristles would be rubbing on guard casing. Instead, we removed the entire guard assembly on the right side and just attached the wire wheel (DEWALT-DW4906) to the spindle with the clamping washers/nut as were used for the grinding wheel that was originally on that side. In use, one just has to be careful since the wire wheel is totally exposed and being driven by a powerful motor. The only thing negative I have to say about this product is that of tightening or loosening the nuts on either side that hold the wheels is a little bit of a challenge. The spindles/nuts are oppositely tapped so that if you put a wrench on each end, you are tightening one end until the other end breaks free to loosen. I wish I could figure a way to tighten or loosen either end independent of the other. It be wonderful if there were some sort of shaft lock. In reading scores of on-line reviews dealing with every brand of grinder, there we many negatives dealing with vibration and wobble. Many were attributed to out of balance grinding wheels. Others dealt with deformed dimple washers that misaligned the grinding wheels of new devices. No such issues with this JET grinder. We also own a JET drill press. We're very happy with that product as well, and that helped us choose JET for the grinder when the reviews did not show any clear cut winner in this price category. June 7, 2015
