Bill,
I would be very interested in the build, looking forward to seeing it.

Of what? I haven't built one yet.

I'm guessing a pic or two of the CAD drawings


RE: --- Surface Grinder - rleete - 01-31-2017

Yes, mayhem has it right. Just curious about the design.

Then again, why haven't you got it done yet?


RE: --- Surface Grinder - EdK - 01-31-2017

It's way down on the list.
It's 55 sheets so I'll create a PDF file and post it here this evening if I get time.

That would be great Ed. Even though it is smaller some might find it easier help to follow along with the prints. Ours is similar in design but some parts are totally different.

Our Spindle. The motor is coupled to it with a Lovejoy coupling shown at the left.

You'll just have to work faster.  Slacker.

Our wheel arbor. The circle shows the movable weight slot.

I recommend taking a hard look at the material & hardware one would need to purchase, especially the bearings as run of the mill bearings will not cut it.


RE: --- Surface Grinder - Bill Gruby - 01-31-2017

I used to work for NDH General Motors Bearing Division. We have what we need. Very good observation though. Run of the mill stuff won't work here. 5200 series double row in front with 5200 series single row rear.
