    Just picked up a 6" Ryobi Bench Grinder for $29.95. Not a bad price. Soooo this means I have to start polishing shi__ now. Thanks to those who showed how to buff on Pinside. You know who you are!image-436.jpg

    Just purchased an old school bench grinder from a guy that cleaned gun barrels with it for years.
    This thing has a motor like a tank and won't stop for Jesus.

    I had a small grinder/buffer similar to the one pictured above and it would slow to a halt without much pressure at all.
    Hopefully that is a good one.

    That is cheep. Please report back and let us know how this works.
    I am a firm believer that older is better when it comes to tools. But if decent quality I will pick one up monday.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I've got either that exact same model. WELL worth the money - never have looked back.

    So I set this thing up out of the box and started to buff my CFTBL ramp flaps.. They sparked a lot and then just disintegrated!? Am I doing something wrong?

    Thin steel heats up quickly.....go slower and you will not see sparks.

    Really? Is that a joke? You do know you need a buffing wheel to buff...right?

    LOL.

    May want to try a buffer instead of a grinder...

    Classic. Especially given OPs original comment:

    Perhaps those instructions were wanting of key details!

    I generally avoid Ryobi. But let us know how it goes!

    Seems like a lot of newer tools are disposable. I have some tools that were my grandfather's and they are still the best to use for any given project. Some of the older tools were built with pride and made to last.

    So the grinder wheels may be replaced by buffer wheels to buff? Cool.

    Wait, wait. So, are we saying he was serious? I assumed he was just f'n around and was going to give props for the jesting.

    #14 6 years ago

    Man, I thought those wheels were a little rough when I applied the buffing paste.

    #15 6 years ago

    I have one of those. I use it for light duty sharpening of woodworking tools. Recommend replacing the wheels with better wheels if you plan on using it for sharpening, but all in all it works and does the job.
