  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I will not be around. I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

Wondering if anyone knows of a source for a 5inch magnetic diamond wheel similar to what you see in the attached manual.
Mine is a KK Calamar. Now I got her working and she wobbles (on an eccentric) like she is supposed to!
This video is the same model as mine:
Accufinish has them for $197: http://accu-finish.com/product/5-inch-diamond-wheels
MSC for $188: https://www.mscdirect.com/product/details/09011065
Do we know of any sellers of these wheels other than Glendo/Accufinish and MSC?
I'm trying to avoid MSC....

Thank you,
Daryl

I have a older GrindRLap that I paid a fortune for and was supposed to have a diamond wheel on it. Somebody took the diamond wheel off of it before it shipped. The pictures provided showed the diamond wheel on the grinder. Anyways, I was able to snag a couple of wheels on eBay for about $45 each. Thats been a few years back. Haven't looked lately. One of the wheels I bought was with a bunch of junk grinding wheels, had to buy the whole batch. The other one was grouped with three or four diamond wheels. I also wound up with a lapping wheel that has to be charged with diamond. I haven't tried it yet. All I can say is keep looking. Yeah, Accu-Finish is the only place that I know of that sells the wheels. Ken

Daryl,
I just ordered two wheels from E.S. Dyjak Company, 3801 Stobart Road, Milford MI 48380
248.648.4260.

Same price as Accu Finish. But Ed offers excellent service and is a good guy.

I got the 600 and 1200 grit.
