Can anyone help with choosing a bench grinder? I need a grinder for basic chisel and plane sharpening. From what I have read so far the recommended speed and style appears to be a 6" or 8" 1450 RPM. Yet when I go looking to buy one they are almost all 3400 RPM? One of my local tools shops said they could source a 6" bench grinder at 1450 RPM from General. Is this an okay brand and does the speed really matter?
