The POWERTEC BG600 6 Inch Bench Grinder is an affordable option that is within most peoples budgets. It’s cheaper than the DeWalt and JET, and seems to have performed very well in the Amazon reviews.
The 2.1 amp motor is powerful enough for most applications, and you’ll be impressed by the vibration free operation offered by the heavy gauge steel base.
It comes with lights that allow you to see your grinding materials clearer, and the included coolant tray allows you to quickly cool down hot items and get back to grinding. Also, dual safety shields keep you protected from any flying debris.
As far as the Amazon score is concerned, this item has been well received. 4 out of 5 stars across 13 reviews. We just wish there were more reviews to show what a good deal this bench grinder really is.
