      This is a great value for the money. The unit does not slow down when heavy grinding is needed. Wheels were fairly well balanced. They trued up well with the supplied wheel truing stick. The weight of the unit keeps it from walking around on a work bench. Unless you are doing heavy grinding you don't even need to bolt it down. The only thing I would have liked to have is a larger tool rest that gets closer to the stone. The one that is on there is stable and adjustable angle wise but not close enough when set at an angle.
