  • Bench grinder modification

    Well I could only find a jacobs chuck with a 3/8" or 1/2" fine thread hole to mount it to something. I took the chuck to a machinest friend of mine, he drilled it out and put a 5/8" coarse thread on it. I was then able to replace the keeper nut on the grinding stone with the chuck, Perfect. Now all I have to do is use a hole saw and cut a 2 1/2" hole on the cover and put it back on. Then I will be ready to use my pneumatic drum sander.

    Are you going to leave the "grinding wheel" on when using the drum sander?

      Personally I think a griinder is a bit fast for a drum sander application. I simply mounted a chuck on an old 1750 rpm motor and it works fine. If you are going to use the grinder as a sander I would take off the stone. If you have ever seen a stone explode you will know why. I always stand back and to the side when starting my grinder until it comes to speed for a minute just to be save.

        yes I will be removing the stone while using the sander, and I purchased a low speed grinder, 1725 rpm.

            Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

            Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

            Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

            Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

            I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

            Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
