Bench grinder for general steel shaping and basic tool grinding. Fitted with a coarse and a fine general-purpose grinding wheel. Do not use aluminium, brass or non-metallic materials on these as it gums up the wheels - the linisher or a hand file should be used

A dressing tool is located in the toolroom which should be used periodically to clear debris and re-flatten the wheels

The RJH Tool Grinder can be used for more precise shaping of tool bits
