Topic tags/keywords: grinder 10 delta

Quick question, i was wondering i have a 10” grinder from delta but i really don’t like the cove/hollow gring it puts on my chisels and plane blades. I like the cove or hollow gring a 6” wheel puts on my tool blades, question is. Can i put a 6” wheel on my grinder or will this not spin right/true? Iforgot to mention it’s a VS grinder meaning u can change the speed from fast to slow.

I don’t know of any reason it wouldn’t work as long as the spindle is the right size for the wheel.

should work well, esp. if it’s a VS.

to make sure – check the RPM a 6” grinder runs at -it’s always stated on the specs of the machine. but I dont see any reason you’d have any issues. again – esp if yours is a VS

To be sure try your least favorite chisel that you were going to replace anyway. But if the arbor is the same or you can use a spacer, should be fine with the VS unless the lower end is too fast. I think white stones are the best for that sort of thing also.

You NEED to check the RPM of your grinder and compare it to the wheel you are installing on it. Having seen several wheels explode on pedistal grinders over 35 years of being a tool maker I can say it is UGULY. The RPM of the wheel MUST be rated above the RPM of the GRINDER to make it safe !!!!!!
