How does the Mag justify being 2x the price of the Oregon?
Better yet...my Oregon 88-021 which is a 12", 1.5 hp bench grinder is around the same price.
Haven't used one .couldn't say but if you get the oregon you will have to change the stone the one that comes on it burns blades quick. And I replaced the motor with a 3450 rpm this also gives a better result and the stones stay true. So I wish I had stepped up a little more.
our 88-021 I seem to remember does 7000 rpm
I'm just wondering, what makes either of these blade sharpeners any better then a 1/2 hp grinder from Sears with a 8" x 1" - 24 grit wheel ?
Do a search on the topic there's alot of information on the subject. I hope it helps.
Been through the archives.. still wondering.. maybe somebody could post some pictures of their machines.. better yet a video of sharpening a blade.
I've got the 88-023(I think), it's the 1/2 HP one with the Ruby red stone. I wouldn't say it burns the blades... It does the job well, but it probably a little slower than the larger HP models. I just sharpen 4 or 5 sets of blades when I have some spare time on the weekends. All in all it's a good grinder I think but a larger HP one wouldn't hurt...
