Hi All,
After looking around for quite awhile, I have started making my own grinder. Had everything I needed except the collet shaft that I had to order
Power is a 500watt brushless motor, the shaft is a 20C ER20 150L collet shaft. Bearings 20mm x 32mm x 7mm, I used 4 to support the shaft, used a toothed belt with a 2-1 ratio. The brushes motor max speed is 12000rpm, so can get better grinding spindle speed control.
I have the basic setup done, with only some fine tuning to finish.
I still have the grinding wheel arbour to machine, will fit the ER20 collet shaft end.
The main body is machined out of a piece of 100mm x 100mm x 50mm alloy block, the motor mount spacer, is a piece of alloy 25mm x 40mm x 110mm, which is bolted to the main body, and then the motor mount is bolted to the spacer.
The alloy is what I had in the spares bin, the motor came from another project, and the belt and pulleys were extras from still another project, bearings are used in a 1/5 Baja buggy that I run, only thing I ordered is the ER20 collet shaft.
Will ad more as the project moves forward.

Cheers
Andrew

4ssss, thanks
Turned up the arbours to hold the stones. Still waiting on some Belleville washers to turn up.

Cheers

Nice. I thought I was clever fixing up a holder for a dremel tool. It was a failure. It kind of ground stuff, but chattered like crazy with a surface finish to match. Scrapped the whole project.

Hi All,
Made up extra arbours while I had the compound slide set.
Cheers

Hi All,
Had to fit a spacer to get the centre lines aligned. Gives a good finish, still need to play around with it to get the feeling of it. Have other stones to check out.
Cheers
Andrew
