The capacitor is easy to change and can be matched once you remove it by any electronics parts house.

    Use a generic capacitor, 1/3 the cost, just have the part matched by voltage Farad value.

Need a delta grinding wheel Cat. No 23-583 36 grit coarse AL. OXIDE were can I find one?


It doesn't need to be Delta, all it needs is to be 8" diameter, same width (1" or 3/4" or 1/2" or whatever), and have an arbor hole (or plastic adapter) the right size - they're all pretty standard.

You can buy wheels like that locally at your hardware store, or online at Amazon or eBay or Sears or any number of other places. They're nearly as common as dirt, and really inexpensive.

I have a single speed Delta 8" bench grinder. How


as for slowing it down, no problem. Hook it to a cord with a dimmer switch connected to it. Make sure your running with the same power rating though. As for a dripper, no ideas just yet.

My 6 inch Cummins bench grinder stopped working. When you turn on the switch it only has a quiet hum. Is it the capacitor?


Try wrapping a thin cord around the shaft many times to allow the shaft to be spun in the normal running direction when pulled. Pull sharply on the cord and turn the motor on--if the starting capacitor is bad, the motor should continue to run until shut off. If there is no capacitor, then the motor uses a start winding and a centrifugal switch to start. The switch is supposed to open when the motor comes up to speed. If you used to hear a loud 'click' when the motor was shut off and slowing down, then you likely have the start winding and switch. If the contacts on the switch become burned and not make contact, then it will display the symptoms you mention. You will need to access one or the other end covers to reach the switch. Hope this helps!

It hums but won't turn. are there brushes? what is the black canister hooked to wiring going to motor? aloha, chip


Hi Chip , have you tried !!carefully!! turning the grinding wheels whilst the grinder is powered up and humming and does this start the machine , if it does your motor start capacitor ( a cylinder/tube with 2 wires or connectors on it ) will be deffective or the leads might have became detached from it , a replacement capacitor is quite cheap but you must replace it with the exact one ( a motor start/run capacitor of the correct Mfd or uF rating typically 30 uF/Mfd and at the correct voltage 110/220V )
if this dosent fix your problem most likely your motor start windings in the motor field coils are burnt out and the grinder is uneconomical to repair .
hope this helps .

Grinder starts and runs then peters out and gets pretty warm. Is capaciter bad?


Most probably. the motor will overamp, get hot and go out on internal overload.

Delta gr150 runs slow and hot


Sounds like it's time to buy a new one. Seems like the windings are burned up. Check voltage at outlet and inspect cord for cuts and such, but i would bet the windings are shot. Sorry

Grinder starts and stops on startup


if this is a cap start motor and not a centrifugal start run motor then bad cap is good place to start

Bench Grinders Featues


A bench grinder is a very simple tool. The units are usually listed as 6-inch or 8-inch wheel models, and the 8-inch units are typically a bit more powerful, and subsequently more expensive. A 6-inch model will usually be powered by a 1/2 HP motor, where the 8-inch will be larger, likely 3/4 HP. Two very useful features to look for are a mounted work light, which will directly illuminate your work, and an adjustable rest, which functions much like the tool rest on a lathe. Strongly consider models which have both features. Many also include a clear, see-through spark guard, which will help keep any sparks from flying toward your face. A word of caution, though: such a guard does not replace safety goggles.
