The RSBG8 has a long and established reputation for robustness, solidity and long lasting performance, making it an ideal choice for the home workshop.
It features adjustable spark guards and tool rests. The cast body reduces vibration and gives the smooth operation that is essential for successful, accurate sharpening. Rubber feet also dampen vibration whilst ensuring the grinder does not move during use.
The 40mm whitestone is ideal for giving a fine finish, particularly to HSS turning tools, while the more coarse greystone is perfect for rougher grinding and shaping. With its large motor and substantial grinding stones, the RPBG8 is well suited to the busier workshop.
The build quality and reliability of this grinder is significantly higher than some of the more common and cheaper machines, which generally have lower powered motors and are substantially lighter. Record Power grinders are designed to give many years of service and replacement stones are readily available should the original ones become worn out, a sure sign of the robustness of these machines.
