It's Jet quality and should last a long time. I found the guard easy to adjust. Fantastic Bench Grinder, extremely powerful. Has an easy to adjust blade/wheel guard. In short, this Bench Grinder does a great job.

The JET 577102 Bench Grinder B00004T9KW was definitely our favorite 8 Inch Grinders. However, there were several other really high quality 8 Inch Grinders we wanted to show you here that only just missed first place.

Jet is another top manufacturer of Grinders. They build the tool that is next on our lineup. Jet's Bench Grinders are one of their top tools. I was excited to have a go at the model 578008 and I was not let down!

The model 578008 Bench Grinder by Jet, at $329.00 is a particularly exceptional Grinder for the price. If you not sure about our number one pick, I'd consider the Jet 578008 next. It's a high quality tool at a great price.
