Converting a surface grinder to Belts KnifeDogs Forums

Jan 10, 2017  Apr 6, 2010. #1. I know this is not an all encompassing tutorial, but it gives the general idea of how to convert a surface grinder to use 2 x 72" belts. Much is going to depend on the specific type/model of surface grinder. The one constant is the contact wheel!

Surface Grinder - Convert to belt or not ? BladeForums

Jan 24, 2016  Personally I don't like worrying about dressing the wheels, my surface grinder belt conversion is easy to maintain. I also have a higher durometer wheel to address the flex issue, it's 90 duro. I like the quick change ability of the belts, and they are a lot cheaper than stones by a lot.

Surface grinder - convert to belt table drive?

Oct 02, 2005  Oct 02, 2005  I've got an older KO Lee S714 surface grinder that is in pretty good shape but generates a barely perceptible scalloped pattern on ground work. The table drive is via rack and pinion and it's possible that the rack and/or pinion gear are worn and need to be replaced at a cost of around $300-400 from KO Lee. However it looks like KO Lee may have ...

Surface grinder belt conversion question BladeForums

Jul 21, 2021  He can order belts in 1" and 1.25" to run on that wheel. There is considerable advantage to running a narrower belt or wheel on a surface grinder. I don't recall ever seeing a 2" surface grinder wheel. Most are less than 1" However, I agree that most knifemaker folks use 2" so they can buy the same size belt as their grinders use..

Dec 21, 2017  I’m attaching a few pics of the belt conversion I did some years ago for a 6x12 surface grinder from Harbor Freight/Enco/Grizzley. This turned out very well and ran smoooooth as silk. The key is to have the aluminum, 90 durometer serrated wheel balanced and made to fit the ginder perfectly. I put together some cad dimensions and had this built.

May 01, 2018  In the case of this grinder, it's 1/2" thick cast iron. All I have to do to swap from stones to belts, is open the guard door, pull the stone off, put the contact wheel on, tighten the hub flange, slap a belt on. Takes 30 seconds or so, and I've got a guard in each circumstance.

Sep 19, 2013  You move the belt across the surface at any rate you choose, so it could just be a few thousands if you choose. Only the leading edge of the belt is in contact with the metal. Good luck on the conversion, I have a surface grinder that I have considered converting but would rather just buy a conversion, but I don't think anyone offers one.

The tension and tracking arm pivots on it and has a gas strut for tension. I have a 6" serrated 90 duro wheel on the way. Man I'm ready for flat parts!

Adding power feed to a surface grinder - Practical Machinist

Apr 16, 2019  However, and especially on a surface grinder unlike on a mill or lathe, one seldom needs accurate long travel. The incremental accuracy of the scales is quite good, probably in the 1-2 micron range. So if I need to take 5 microns from a part I am really limited by the overall accuracy of the machine which is likely about 2 microns as well.

Jun 12, 2021  The precision that surface grinding brings to the table is usually overkill for knife making (with the exception of some folders). the knowledge needed to dial in wheel selection is steep and the cost of wheels in general makes "discovery" too painful....
