, Get really sharp tools
, you would not like the one I might write about Draper wet and
I brought one of these from a different supplier and when i got it out the box the wet stone didn’t turn (although the spindle did) so i thought ‘here we go, i’ve wasted my time and money on another piece of sh3t’. On closer inspection, i realised that the nut securing the wet stone just needed tighten it up (which meant removing the water bath). Once i’d got it fully up and running i was really pleased with it. Like the guys above i’m a chippy and brought for chisels, but my background is in metal bashing so can i offer some other perspective on then comments above. The wet stone does run out of line but it doesn’t matter, the wet wheel is geared right down (slow with lots of torque) so the ‘wobble’ has no effect on what you are grinding at the working surface (the wobble is more visible on the side of the wheel which you don’t use). The body does get hot, but i would expect this, it has a heavy cast body designed to dissipate heat from the motors, i’ve run mine continuously for hours now, it’s warm (even hot) but not dangerous and not a problem. In an afternoon i have taken 30 chisels from ‘scrap’ to being able to shave with them. The fast wheel gets the balk of the damage out (but you need to know what you’re doing, its really fast. The slow, wet wheel finishes blades virtually to the point where they only need stropping (i still finished mine by hand on a 800 grit diamond stone but only 2 to 3 minutes each). For the money very good value but whoever is doing the final assembly is letting draper down badly, i shouldn’t have had to rebuild this myself before being able to use it.
I am not into doing reviews. If i did, you would not like the one i might write about draper wet and dry grinders.
Having battled for years with oil-stones and never really getting a good edge, this grinder is magic. It’s a bit noisy and runs quite hot, but the results are first rate. Just be careful of some very sharp chisels.
