SOURCE: Bench Grinders Safety issues

Goggles or safety glasses need to be worn to protect the operator's eyes from the sparks and metal filings that result. Depending on the workpiece and time of exposure, hearing protection may also be required, the dust produced is also potentially hazardous. The toolrest (or workrest) should be mounted slightly below the center of the grinding wheel with less than 3 mm clearance from the wheel. This prevents the work from jamming between the toolrest and the wheel. Grinding wheels designed for steel should not be used for grinding softer metals, like aluminium. The soft metal gets lodged in the pores of the wheel and expand with the heat of grinding. This can dislodge pieces of the grinding wheel. Wire brushes require particular attention for the safety of the operator and bystanders as the metal wires may become dangerous projectiles as they could bind with the object being brushed and so throw it away with great energy. The machine needs to be securely mounted to a pillar or a bench to be used safely and effectively, often with an emergency stop switch or pedal fitted close by the machine, for use in emergencies.

You should be able to hold the grinding wheel with a pair of leather gloves on your hands and lossen the bolt. Look very carefully at the threads to make sure you are trying to lossen and not tighten. Some are left handed threads on bench grinders.

Usually a new wire wheel comes with different size bushing just for the problem you are describing. Either that or take it back and get one specifically for your tool.

Replacement should be simple. Just do a one for one hookup with the new part, after you unplug it first.

I purchased a Wilton 6 in grinder, model 17203. It spins in a counter clockwise direction. Is this normal? In other words the wheel is turning down on the material being worked. Thanks Jim Price


Counter-clockwise as viewed from which end? The correct direction as viewed from the right end would be counter-clockwise. As viewed from the left end it would be clockwise. In other words, when using the grinder from the front, the surface of both wheels should be going down. If this is not the direction it turns, take it back. Good luck, Al K

Have 25 year old Wilton belt grinder. Belts seem to wobble when running then will just not track. Not sure what part needs replacement.


The motor and grinder pulleys need to be perfectly parallel or the belt will track to one side or the other. The belt must be uniform with no stretch or wear points which will cause erratic travel. Hope this helps!

Cant get a on off switch anywhere co that maid it for wilton is out of business what a scam.


Repair parts have always been a problem.

See if you can get into the electrical area ... open the bench grinder from underneath ... tie the switch wires together ... put a regular wall switch on the electric line.

I hope it works for you.

The motor just sits there and buzzes, when there isn't any electicity bearings turn freely


There is a short internally in the motor. IMO not worth repairing, new bench grinders are pretty inexpensive.
