You sort of get what you pay for in bench grinders.....I know,duh.

But posted to to give you a suggestion.Whatever you get,it can be turned into a dedicated wire brush/wheel setup later.So,snag what the budget will allow for now,then keep an eye out for an old US made workhorse.I've seen really nice,medium to big grinders with stands go for less than 200......don't show up everyday,but you'll be in the position to wait.Best of luck,BW

PS....we just(finally)hooked some 3" snaptight,HVAC duct to our main grinder.It got run over and down,each wheel has its own duct......to a 5 g metal can,1/2 filled with sand.Its a cheapo,but functions very well.If you get on flea-bay,start looking at grinders.....look at some of the nicer ones....they have water traps.It's such an easy 20 minute or so job that makes a big difference in keeping particles from flyin around shop.
