Surface Grinder to Tool Grinder

Guys, Is there any type of tool post mount that I can attached to the table of my small Rockwell surface grinder that will allow me to cut/sharpen my lathe and shaper bits? I have the option of picking up an old Devlieg MicroBit tool cutter but it is as large as my surface grinder and when you consi...

Re: Devlieg MicroPoint Tool cutter

Mite,

The other thing I was thinking was to use some form of tool holder which I could attach to my Rockwell surface grinder. Seems the Rockwell machine that I have has a simillar looking machine that is a tool grinder.

Has anyone tried out using a surface grinder to grind tool bits?

Devlieg MicroPoint Tool cutter

Does anyone have any experience with or shine some light on the Devlieg MicroPoint tool cutter? I am looking at a used one in good condition which I can get for a song. It is minus tool holders. I want a machine to make cutter bits for my lathes, mill, shapers, what have you. This is what I would ca...

Re: 2 gallon Flood type coolant system from Harbor Fre

I am using the Harbor Freight pump mentioned earlier. They run from $25 to $30 depending on sales. It has been the power behind my parts wash for about 3-4 years. I run Stoddard fluid through it and it works great. I was needing to get a pump for my 12X16 horizontal bandsaw. When I got it the previo...

Re: More Drill and Bit Grinding

Mike, OK on the book. I sure thank all of you for the info. I think what I will do first is to read up on the subject as much as possible. Step #2 will be to get one of the drill jig holders and try a few drills for starters. The cutting bits for my lathe and shaper will be next. I still keep lookin...

Re: arbor support

If you are looking for an arbor support for a #2 Cincinnati mill please try Destiny Machinery www.destinymach@msn.com 727-376-2399. Dennis has one that I sent back to him. I am disappointed with him though since it has been two months now and he keeps forgetting to refund the $150 I paid for it.

More Drill and Bit Grinding

OK, I did not seem to stir up any comments on the Harbor Freight Drill Bit Grinder ($600 import machine) so I was wondering if someone has a idea on where I can find info perhaps on the internet on the proper technique of bit sharpening. A refresher on sharpening cutting bits for my lathe wouldn't h...

Drill and Tool Bit Grinding

Does anyone have experience with the HarborFrieight "Universal Cutter Grinder" which they sell for $599??

I also want to get a drill bit sharpener and have wondered if this Grinder or similar could be used to do drill bits if a proper chuck was make to hold the drill.

Any comments??

Re: Cincinnati #2 - Comments??

OK John. Well I am in no hurry to dispose of the machine but I do need to send back the arbor support while I got the ok to do so. We have been discussing this for weeks and since he told me this past Monday to send it back I want to get my money back and run. He didn't have to since it was my fault...
