I Forge Iron

jet square wheel grinder


Recommended Posts

I'm considering ordering the single speed version (now grey) for ~ $1650.  Best I can find out there are some changes from the older white version that was $2300.

I seems to be a copy of the Wilton.  I'm not a knifemaker, but I want to upgrade my shop.

Spending more than $2000 not presently an option, I have a new Anyang hammer on the way.

Any advice or suggestions?

The Wilton/Jet square wheel grinders are very well built, but a bit of a dated design (IMHO).  The industrial grade guards are nice and OSHA approved, but the belt changing and tensioning systems are a bit inefficient.  I took a knifemaking class at a facility that had a wide range of grinders including a TW-90, Hardcore, KMG, Bader, Home-built and Square Wheel.  Most students used other options by preference.  I'd keep looking, there are a lot of new options out there that are more versatile.
