I bought this belt grinder about 2 months ago. But other than run it for around 5 minutes and put a piece of steel to it to make sure it worked, I hadn't used it. Well I used it last night for about 2 hours straight, dressing hammers, chisels and punches and I have to say that I am very pleased with how it performed. This little machine ran like a beast! It didn't even come close to bogging down. The motor never got very hot and all this was with a cheap Harbor Freight Warrior ceramic belt.
I paid $15 for it at my favorite flea market but I would pay $50 if I saw another one! Highly recommend it.
