Re: Surface Grinding

I'm thinking that it has more to do with the size of the diamond. These wheels like an open face, and a larger diamond with greater surface area may crush the bond more and close it up, "dulling" the wheel. The smaller diamonds in a cluster dressing tool would tend to "open" the wheel up more. Possi...

Re: Surface Grinding

Conrad, I bought a 5SG60 wheel to try and it has hardly been off of the spindle since. It's my "go to" wheel for sure. I mounted it on an adapter with balancing capability and balanced it using a Stuhr. I also use flood coolant, but I am curious as to what you are dressing yours with. Norton recomme...

Re: Is MSC Totally Useless?

Now that we have an item number, I'm showing $410.88 from MSC as well. Both Suncoast and MSC show the retail price at over $600.00. The Suncoast price is definitely a good deal at $229.22. Before you buy, you might check Hemly tool, as they sell the same set for 208.75. Or, you can buy them from dir...

I have not left the key in the chuck and turned on the machine after the first time 60 years ago.
Exactly! It should be a self correcting problem.

Re: Milling a helix

Interesting that your machine doesn't run if not operated regularly. What does it do, Glenn? Mine simply did nothing at all! It seems to have various issues. The most recent, nothing on the control panel would operate and the coolant pump started running as soon as power was applied. Before that, t...

Re: Milling a helix

I've found mine DOA any time it sits unused for any extended period of time. The new deal is to run it at least every couple of weeks, even if only to run it through it's start up cycle. The start up cycle is one that I created where you give a few pulls on the lube plunger, reference the axes, and ...
