Baldor-Reliance Bench Grinders
|Resources: Baldor Bench Grinder Buying Guide|
Baldor (also known as Baldor-Reliance) grinders are versatile tools that you'll find in the shops of machinists, mechanics and mining blacksmiths, as well as at jewelers and dentists. Bench grinders are used for shaping, sharpening and polishing metal tools and parts and other hard-surface materials such as acrylics.
About Baldor Grinders
Bench grinders are multi-purpose tools that come in handy in the workshop whether you're making furniture, building shelves or working with metal. When tools such as drill bits and lathes begin to lose their edge, the bench grinder's abrasive wheel helps sharpen them back up to performance levels.
Baldor Grinder Features
Baldor bench grinders come with either single- or three-phase TENV motors in cast-iron housings that keep metallic particles from disrupting grinding efficiency. The grinders have variable-amp ratings with a variety of voltage hookups, from 115V to 208/230V and as high as 460V and 575V. Baldor electric bench grinders also have different horsepower ratings, from 0.5 to 8, and each puts out either 1,800 or 3,600 RPMs of grinding speed. The bench grinders come in different grinding-wheel sizes, from 6 to 14 inches in diameter. The wheels, part of the comprehensive line of Baldor sanding, grinding and polishing accessories, come with 36-grit and 60-grit abrasive surfaces.
Many Baldor bench grinders come with tilting belts for easier reach. All grinders come with wheel guards, spark arrestors, eye shields and tool rests for sharpening and grinding at the proper angle. Baldor bench grinders also have rubber feet to minimize vibration on work surfaces. Some Baldor industrial bench grinders rest directly on work surfaces for job site convenience, and others have optional pedestals and wire-brush buffing and polishing wheels. The optional pedestals are part of a broader array of Baldor tool stands you can add to your work space for extra stability.
