: Please notice that the grinder above does not include the stand.
: This is the grinder I bought after I got into turning. I use it for my
: turning chisels, but I use a 3450 rpm grinder with the grey wheels for
: routing stuff like grinding the lawn mower blade. I bought the 3450 Delta
: grinder off of Craig's list for $30.
: If a grinder vibrates it is because the wheels are not round.
There's another source of vibration, which is the wheels not being totally
perpendicular to the arbor, which can be partially due to the way the
flange fits on the wheel.. I had an early
version of the Woodcraft grinder, and got rid of most of the vibration by
rotating the wheel with respect to the flanges. It took a while, a lot of trial
and error, but worked well.
I now have a more recent version of the Woodcraft grinder, which
had very little vibration out
of the box, so this tweak wasn't needed.
