That’s more than enough power for heavy grinding and even suitable for industrial style applications. With all that power, it still manages to run smoothly, and there’s very little in the way of vibration which is a real bonus for the end user. The noise level is also relatively minimal for such an impressive unit.
It can be bolted down if necessary or secured to the bench with rubber feet. At 56 lbs it’s not exactly lightweight, but it’s not overly burdensome either for a machine of this caliber. With cast iron wheel guards, dust vents and pre-lubricated sealed ball bearings, this Jet 577102 JBG-8A is durable and should support you for years to come. It effortlessly grinds, sharpens and smooths with equal precision for flawless and professional results. This makes a perfect DIY gift for handymen in your life.
