This is not a new subject. These grinders are known for their poor quality wheels and sticking tool rests.
I replaced the grinding wheels with one diamond and one good quality “green wheel”.
I followed the advice from YouTube to make this Baldor knock off worth a darn.
Squaring the protractors, removing paint where it contacts the sliding protractors, removing burs and providing clearance where. Required.
I assumed, “type 50” grinding wheels would fit this machine since the manual’s Instructions did not say, modifications required. No, I had to remove about .010” from the aluminum backing plate on the well made diamond wheel. I also had to increase the ID of the CGW wheel for proper mounting clearance.
Just be aware, I was expecting to perform these upgrades. I have a very smooth, capable machine now.
I saved hundreds of $$$$&$ but I did have to spend a few hours on it.
