Have you dressed the wheels? If vibration persists:

With the grinder off, spin the wheels by hand and check for sideways movement. If present then this is probably the cause.

I sort mine by inserting paper shims between the washers and the wheel. I do not know whether this is considered "correct" or safe so accept no responsibility.

I would take a look at the wheels or wire brush before I went any further. Then I would remove both and just run the grinder to see if still vibrates. But usually one or both of the wheels are out of round.

Is the 4A912B Dayton 10" 1 HP bench grinder 3 phase or 1 phase?


If the plug on the cord has 2 flat prongs and one round one then its 110 VAC single phase. If the motor has 4 wires then I'd suspect 3 phase. The data plate on the motor will tell you for sure.

I have an old Craftsman bench grinder that I got at an auction. I need a capacitor and the one on it has no markings. It is a 1hp model 319.19063. Sears Parts direct says that it is no longer available and...


this is a "Split-Phase"motor it uses only a run capacitor and a typical capacitance rated MFD rating will be between 80 and 290 MFD, go to www. grainger..com and they will have your part,and even if its an older unit and the model/serial/number is available take it with you & they will have a replacement capacitor available in the correct size/dimension/mfd/etc

I have a ludell (machine tool) bench grinder. The problem is that the grinder disc will not turn. The motor hums but won't turn. I took the disc off and turned the shaft by hand with the powder on and it...


Ah, the start winding is not operating. When you turn the motor by hand. When the motor speeds up, do you hear a click sound? This is the start winding switch working. There might be a capacitor that is wired in with this switch that is used to start the grinder. If this capacitor is fried, the motor will not start. If the switch is shot, also the motor will not start. There could also be a wire or connector in this part of the motor that is not connected, or fried and not making contact. These are a few things to look for.

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!

No control of speed on bench grinder,need schematic


Unless the motor is a brush type universal unit, there is commonly no way to change the speed of an induction motor. There are AC motor speed control units available, but cost more than the grinder as they change the frequency as well as the voltage. There are speed controllable grinders available that use brushes so that simple electronics can control speed. Hope this helps!

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!

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.

I have a Craftsman Commercial 1/2 HP Bench grinder. When I turn it on It just hums. It doesn't turn. Can you tell me what is wrong and which part I need to change? Thank you, Marlan PS: I have misplaced...


The motor has a high spot on the armature causing the motor to stop rotating. The humming noise is the fields full of current which is making the armature to react to make this noise. For the money purchase a new bench grinder which is an easier fix than dumping money into your old one here

I retrieved a Buffalo bench grinder, Model B-6, from where it had been stored for at least 11 years. Prior to that, I don't know its history. I plugged it in, and it runs. Here is my question: Do these...


A bench grinder would be unlikely to need oiling, but if it has such a provision there would be spring loaded caps or a set screw caps on the motor body near both arbors. The real concern is if the wheels have been compromised by taking a hard bump that could weaken them. This is an unlikely problem if grinder hasn't been dropped or had something heavy drop onto a wheel. If you have no reason to suspect wheel damage, and it runs without squeaking or excessive vibration, and the cord is not damaged, and there are no loose parts on it - then you have nothing to worry about. But you might want to consider "dressing" the wheels. Google "Grinding dresser" and read the Wikipedia article.
