SOURCE: switch and capacitor crapped out on 1/2 hp Sears bench grinder

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

SOURCE: I need a replacement switch for a craftsman 1/2 HP bench grinder

this switch is no longer available from Sears, so I suggest making a wiring drawing and taking the switch to a local electrical supply house and try matching it up with a replacement. It seems to be a simple on/off type switch and I would think that you should have no problem. Let me know if you do and give me the information on the switch and I will try some other sites I know.

SOURCE: need an on/off switch for a buffalo bench grinder

I had the same problem with a Northern Tools bench grinder. These are made in China and parts are hard to come by. I had enough room after removing the old broken on/off switch to install a single pole 15 amp light switch like you use in your home. I simply installed it horizontally and then put the switch cover on. It works perfectly. If you do not have enough room then look for any 15 amp or larger switch that will fit in the housing. Any on/off switch will work. You could even mount the switch on the bench in a switch housing and run the wires from the grinder to the switch and back if need be. Just be safe and make sure there are no exposed wires. As a last resort you could remove the switch connect the wires, eliminating the switch and use a plug in wall switch such as this. 4147a14.png

Find a Single Pole Single Throw (spst) toggle switch at the local hardware store rated for the load of the grinder. Wire the switch in place and viola you are done! Machines are stupid;they can tell the difference between an oem part and a replacement.

Starting coil switch I had to replace a bearing on my buffalo bench grinder and I cant figure out to put the starting coil switch back on or how it works


A coil is just that a coil and unless it has diodes it doesnt matter how you put it on. let me know (diodes are those things that are usually black with a silver stripe -cylindrical in shape)

I have a Buffalo B-10CB(CH) bench grinder and the on/off switch has broken, it's a push/pull type. What can I replace it with to make it work safely?


You could connect the wires of the switch together inside and bypass the switch. Then I would connect in the power cable a switch rated for 1 hp. You can use surface mount electrical box, with two cable connectors (one for the cable going into the grinder, the other for the cable going to the male cord end of the cable. Install a 120 volt switch inside the box (similar to the light switch in the wall). Make sure that the switch is rated for 1 hp. I would install the switch under the bench, under the grinder.

I have an B-6CB(KS) 6" buffalo grinder, the switch


The neutral line should never be switched--only the hot wire (black). If there are only two wires that went to the switch, you should be able to tie them together and the motor will run when plugged in. The switch should be a common SPST type either toggle or rocker to fit. Hope this helps!

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.
