Set all screws so they bear evenly on floor. Too heavy stock removal troubleehooting particularly on in feed work. Increase work speed; use softer wheel. Loss of cutting action. Remove or change spacer behind regulating wheel so side of regulating wheel is back of grinding wheel. Work guides are deflected toward regulating wheel.


Insufficient coolant when grinding tubing or other hollow work such as pistons, etc Increase flow of coolant at point of contact.

Below, are listed problems, which may be encountered whilst grinding. Widely spaced spots on work piece due to oil or glazed spots on wheel True spots out of wheel, balance and redress.

However, increasing truing angle and re truing wheel without changing housing angle can attain same result. Sitemap All prices are in GBP. Use one standard paper washer blotting paper if other not available under flanges and tighten down. Loose regulating wheel spindle bearings.

Insufficient lubrication at lower slides causes slides to hang and jump. When through-feed grinding relatively short work, without using a loading device, do not use fingers to push work between wheels. Use coarser grain size and softer grade.

Use coolant filter for fine finishes.
