I looked at some Harbor Fright 6 and 8 inch bench grinders a couple days ago and they did look fairly hefty compared to some of their normal junk on motor driven tools. Will they last - who knows, but the prices were right and for a casual user, probably fine. I'm still using a 1/2Hp, 1952 vintage(the age of my first house), furnace blower motor with a $5 buck stone arbor and a home made tool rest - I do 'aspire' to something better though - my new Grizzly catalog arrived yesterday .
