Energer ENB519GRB 150mm Bench Grinder 240V
Excellent as a polisher
I bought this to convert to a polishing machine for final fine sharpening of woodcarving tools - for this it needs to in the reverse direction from grinders (i.e upwards)
It's really easy to do - This is a nicely solidly made little grinder that is completely modular so that the motor unit reverses on the base and you can swap the enclosures and tool rests left for right - and voila...
Change the two existing wheels for a rubberised carbide wheel (very fine metal removal and very few sparks) and a stitched cotton mop that you use with abrasive soap for that final mirror like finish
Nice smooth and quiet running , Good solid and wide eyeshields (very important when reverse running ) and makes wickedly sharp tools.
A purpose made reverse running grinder/ polisher is Â£180 - this is a pretty good substitute and works a treat.

does what it says on the tin !
Excellent value considering the money that i could have paid for a bench grinder. Ok it hasn't got a flashy brand name but it's perfect for anyone looking for a cheap but reliable product.

I am new to sharpening tools and various wood turning chisels and have not only managed to teach myself to sharpen the tools but now find it easy using this grinder. My previous ginder was given to me and I struggled to use it so purchased a new one. I havent given 5 stars because it isnt exceptional but it is good value for the money, it does what it says and as a woman I have learnt to use this I think it is good for the price. It is new and therefore I dont know how reliable it is.
