Not All Bench Grinders are Price or Performance

Choosing the best bench grinder in both price and performance for your garage can be frustrating. Especially for car owners and DIY mechanics who have only an occasional need for a bench grinder, but do not want one that is so cheaply built that it will either damage a project or worse yet---cause an accident.

The other side of the coin is that while price is sometimes an indication of quality---but not always as shown in this review---paying 4-5 times more for a name brand tool is crazy money spent when there are alternative choices that perform if not equally well…are close enough for most mechanics and their needs at a much lower price.

And that’s where this article comes in.

According to a recent Project Farm YouTube channel episode, paying more is not necessary as the host took the time and energy to help you decide what brands not only work best over a range of tasks, but also reveals where your hard-earned money is best spent when deciding on a grinder brand that can save you over $400 on a similar-quality model.

The value of this video is that it not only reveals what bench grinders you may want to avoid, but those that are a better choice and investment for your car maintenance and repair that includes a preferred Harbor Freight brand and model over another Harbor Freight brand and model with a $40 price difference.

That said, here is the video well worth watching in its entirety.
