I was recently “given” a heavy duty bench grinderwith a 1/2 inch threaded
shaft on each end. It is a 1/3 HP motor @3450 RPM. I have removed all
unecessary heavy hardware to make the unit somewhat portable.
My question is:
I want to use tapered spindles on the shaft so that buffs can be easily
changed. Do the set screws on the spindle go down into the threaded shaft or
are there tapered spindles that go on to the shaft using threads? I have
seen the spindles in various supply catalogs for about $5. and all seem to
attach with set screws. I have looked at Tim McCreight handbook!
Any suggestions on using this “gift” grinder? What buffs should I buy to get
