Recent reviews of Delta Power Tools 23-197 8-Inch Variable Speed Bench Grinder:

I was expecting Delta machines to still be made in the USA, this is made in China and arrived with a strong smell, like moth balls+ rubber. That cost a half star. It was well-filled. When assembling it, one of the cart bolts had faulty threads and I had to either go purchase another or, as I did, get out a tap-and-die and fix it myself. Chinese quality control, sigh. Minus another half star. The information are clear, nearly readable English, with good illustrations plus a great photo on the box. So no problem assembling, some minutes other than fixing the faulty screw. Small surprise: manual advises cleaning all parts with WD-40 before installing (spark guard, etc. ). Amazon description doesn’t list all features: + Water tray to help keep workpiece cool while grinding+ 5 year warranty (if the buyer returns the product prepaid to a DELTA factory service center. register online.) Wheel Speed: 2,000 to 3,400 RPM Wheel Grit: 36 and 60 Grit Wheels Cord Length: 6 feet + 2″ plug (plugged in) Weight: 45. 5 lbs. (Gross) needs a 40 watt 120v bulb for a roof fan (high vibration). + Works excellently, calm, low vibration, looks safe, not sure how long the smell will last. I could purchase it again, in spite of the minor annoyances.



Although it is listed at 129 got mine some weeks ago for 79. Its a robust machine with lots of torque and many accessories. The reason for not giving it 5 stars is the fact that the medium grit wheel was a bit out of round and camber, this looks to be pretty common with the manufacturers of the wheels and not Delta’s problem(?). This was remedied with the beefy, diamond coated dressing tool that it came with.



Just bought this Bench Grinder. Low sound. Slight vibration at full speed. You get all the tools need for this grinder as well as dressing tool. I used for almostan hour and didn’t bolted down to bench. Rubber feed looks to be working.
