Porter-Cable Corded Bench Grinder with Built-In Led Light - 6-in Dia x 1/2-in Arbour - 2.5 Amp Motor - Variable-Speed is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome & excellent price. No wire wheel adapter. Love the grinder. It's an excellent size and is working for everything I purchased it for. It's quiet, the lights actually illuminate the work area, and it's pretty quick & easy to change out the wheels. The only issue I have with this grinder (and the ONLY reason it didn't get 5 stars) is that wire wheels require a little bit of finagling to get them to fit and there wasn't any type of adapter, so I had to get creative. Wire wheels tend to be thinner in the middle, where the arbor goes through, and I had to put a few LARGE washers on each side to get the arbor nut to clamp down on the wire wheel and center it in the wheel housing. Works like a charm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not good do not buy this.I was replaceing a bad grinder I bought years ago from Harbor freight.i thought I could not get worse,I was wrong,this grinder is no good.the stones are garbage,just throw them away ,they are way out of round and couse really bad vibration,the grinder is so weak the stones are to heavy for it,so it has a really slow start up,once runing for a couple minutes it gets so weak that if you put a little pressure on the stone it stops.i had learned you can't fix that with capacitors,that's cheap materials,this grinder is way underpower I guess if you work on jewelry or soft metals it might work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value at an affordable price. Suited for light/occasional use for the DIYer. Perfectly fine for sharpening a lawn mower blade or a machete, throw on a wire wheel and remove rust/paint from small projects, add on a buffer wheel and a polishing product, you're good to go. The only thing I would complain about is the lights are battery powered, they are bright enough but come on, they could have hard-wired the fixtures in and made it a bit "environment/user-friendly" Really? I'm in the middle of a project, the lights go out and I've got to go hunt down some AAA's?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wire wheel First this grinder is not made by Porter Cable I was told this by their customer service. Also you cannot put a wire wheel on the grinder; on the last page of the owner’s manual it says you need a spacer to install a wire wheel. But when you try and find this spacer on Porter Cables web site there is not one to be found. Why because this machine is not even made by them when you call customer service they told me I would have to make my own by using washers to space the wheel. So that is what I did this worked fine for a day but then the wheel opened up and now the wire wheel will not turn. So to make this work for what I need to do I have taken off the side guard not safe but this is the only thing you can do to make it work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick setup and works great I mounted this to a 2" x 6" x 12" board and then use wood clamps to secure it to the front of my bench when I need to use it. When done, I put it back on the shelf so I have the front of my bench for use. I sharpened my ax and chisels in no time. The LED lights are a nice touch as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So many design flaws I picked one up yesterday thinking it would be a better quality than a HF knock-off. I'm returning it today. The motor bogs down under any load. You need a stack of washers to get a wire wheel on it. There's NO WAY to tighten the bolts! No key, no lock, no notches for a wrench. As soon as you start snugging down one side, it spins the other side free. If you put any load on it, it spins the bolt free on the other side and all of the sudden your other wheel is flopping around and the nut is rolling around inside the shield. Not Cool! The motor loses power as it gets hot, so you're looking at very short duty cycles, I got about 2 minutes before it was completely worthless. All in all, not worth the money or hassle. I did give it a star for a nice base and easy assembly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this grinder for light use. Have numerous Porter Cable products that have been quality. I have several other bench grinders and all have been quality. This grinder does not meet either Porter Cable standards nor the others I have. Hard to tighten either wheel as the one loosens as other is trying to be tightened. Tool rests are cheesy and not adjustable. Motor heats up if pushed at all. Poor quality and I would not recommend

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lights and Base A decent grinder but for two things - 1) The base only has two mounting holes...one on each side directly in the center under the shaft. I intended to mount using lag bolts but now need 3" bolts, nuts and washers. 2) The led lights are battery powered with cheap plastic housings. Battery powered lights on an electric powered tool. Totally ridiculous.
