Bench Grinders and Tool Sharpening

Bench grinders are excellent pieces of machinery that are extremely useful to have around your workplace or home workshop.

These clever tool sharpening machines use spinning abrasive wheels to grind and shape the material. As a result of having two wheels with different abrasive grades, they are great for sharpening blunt tools, such as blades, chisels, knives, scissors, and shears.

Here at Kendal Tools & Machinery, we are proud to provide some of the best bench grinders on the market – guaranteed to keep your tools razor-sharp and fit for use.

So, why not take a look at the collection below and identify the best one for your needs? We promise you won’t be disappointed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can bench grinders be used for?

Put simply, a bench grinder is a special type of grinding machine that’s used to drive abrasive wheels to sharpen tools. It’s a must-have for DIY and trade workshops. The grinding wheels come in different sizes with varying grits, which makes them perfect for everything from grinding and sharpening blunt tools and metal objects to cutting hard items and wood, removing rust, and shaping and buffing objects. Feel free to contact the team at Kendal Tools for more information about bench grinders and their uses.

What size bench grinder do I need?

Bench grinders typically come in two sizes: 6-inch and 8-inch. Whilst both sizes are easy to set up and convenient to use, they differ in price – with the larger machines costing the most. A 6-inch bench grinder operates at regular speeds and has sufficient power to help you execute the most common home improvement tasks. It can be used for a wide range of DIY and professional projects and can be purchased for an affordable price. An 8-inch bench grinder, on the other hand, is perfect for professional use and heavy-duty work. It’s worth pointing out that it’s a lot slower in terms of operation, yet it requires fewer wheel changes and maintenance. So, although you’ll pay more for an 8-inch bench grinder, you’ll save money in the long run because you won’t have to change the wheels as frequently. To determine which bench grinder is best for sharpening your tools, call Kendal Tools on 01539 733 774 or email, and we’ll get back to you with detailed information.

Why is tool sharpening important?

A tradesperson must have the right tools for the job, but they also need to ensure that they are sharp and ready to use. Dull blades will cause wear and tear, which could ultimately put a strain on your core muscles and damage your power tools. However, allocating enough time to sharpen your tools before using them will allow you to make clean, smooth-edged cuts. After all, sharp tools are safer and more efficient to use than blunt ones. And tool sharpening can help prolong the life of blades, meaning you won’t need to replace them as often.
