    Hi jack swart, we want to help you with your question, but we need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    is there a button to press that locks the blade and do you have the special spanner to undo the locking nut on the grinder wheel ?
    Measure the diameter of the grinding wheel and buy a similar one .

My Rancilio Rocky Burr coffee grinder w/doser is not grinding the beans they simply remain in the hopper


It is most likely that something is blocking the pathway to the grinder. As the Rocky is a direct drive grinder there is no gear that could be broken.
Try to remove the beans from the hopper and inspect the pathway, move the beans that might be under the 'disk'. If that is not working you might have to open the grinder;
  • remove all coffee beans
  • unscrew the three screws in the bottom of the hopper
  • remove the hopper
Now you can see the grinder wheel and tell if it is turning normally.
This might be a good opportunity to give the grinder a thorough cleaning.
Do not soak it in water, just a stiff small brush (e.g. a toothbrush) is the best tool. And perhaps accompanied by a vacuum cleaner :)
If you have been using very 'oily' beans for a long time they might have clogged the grinding wheels.

Good luck,
Villi

How to change a grinder blade on a ryobi grinder


Handheld grinder or bench grinder? I'll assume you're asking about a handheld grinder.

Engage the arbor lock. You may need to rotate the wheel until you find the spot where the arbor lock locks the wheel. Use a wrench or a gloved hand to unscrew the wheel (I use my bare hand). Screw the replacement wheel on and disengage the arbor lock. The new wheel doesn't need to be very tight, it'll tighten itself as you work.

Should the wheel move in stopoped position


It should rotate freely, but it should feel like it's turning gears on the inside of the grinder. It should NOT be floppy, and it should NOT spin as if it's not turning gears inside the grinder. It should run straight and true.

It's possible that you didn't remember to install the inner (backup) arbor washer before installing the wheel. If you do that, the wheel will spin completely freely on the arbor shaft. Find that washer and install it under the wheel.

It's also possible that you installed a very thin cutoff wheel but your grinder won't accept one, that it requires a full-thickness grinding wheel. Some grinders won't grip a very thin cutoff wheel correctly.

My bench grinder does not spin wiyhout helping the wheel it is brand new


If this happens just after bought a new tool, Then there is a problem with a start capacitor, or the auxiliary winding from the motor , or just only a loose slide contact if there was a induction motor used, If such a thing happens go back to the dealer for warranty if you in doubt about control if its an easy to fix problem by yourself if nothing was broken.

I changed grinder stone wheels and replaced with buffing wheel... now the grinder will stall when i try to buff things... what went wrong or what did i do and how can i fix it?


Buffing takes a lot of power, maybe a lot more than you expected. Bench grinders come in lots of sizes and power levels. If you have a small, or inexpensive, or fractional hp grinder, it simply isn't up to the task. By the way, rpm is also a big factor. A grinder, especially a smaller one, turns at a pretty high rpm. A given hp rating at a high rpm gives less torque than the same hp rating on a different grinder with a lower rpm. On your grinder you might get away with smaller diameter and/or narrower buffing wheels that you use very lightly. Otherwise, your grinder just isn't going to cut it.

To sharpen tools


The angle things on the grinder are usually set up for drill bits and never moved again. If you need to sharpen your shovel, I would get a 4 1/2 grinder with 80 grit disc in there and grind away from the edge, Not into it, it cuts 10 times faster, cleaner, straighter, than the grinder, use fit or the lawn mower blades too, and the machete, use the grinder for your drill bits and other precision type stuff, don't let the wheels get rounded off or uneven, use a wheel dresser if they do. I have a couple grinders set up in my shop, one wheel for finer stuff, then a wire wheel, then a green wheel for carbide, and then another wire wheel. I use a 1 inch belt for knives and finer stuff, and a 10 disc for serious stuff along with the 48 inch belt. So you can see, I use them a lot. But if you need to use the grinder for your shovel, I would not use the angle stops, I would do it freehand and you can only cut the outside edge, and it will be hard to get it around there. You might have to take the angle stops off. Hope this helps.

Grinder ceased working. I pulled it apart, found broken wire but had to pull fully apart to correct. Grinder now spins discs off and arcs badly at brushes. I think I have connected wiring wrongly. Can I...


you can try going to Makitatools.com and downloading a breakdown for this tool. If it arcing badly at brushes there could be a wiring problem or damage to the armature, check the wiring first and also the wheel spinning off might mean that you are running in reverse. did you take the field out of it and if so it might be in 180 degrees out. Let me know

Angle grinder


on a grinder the nut that holds the wheel on has left handed threads.....that means it has to be turned in the opposite direction than conventional nuts do..there should be a button on the casing to hold in..this keeps the grinding wheel from turning wheel being removed....remember to unplug first..thanks and have a great day

Older black & decker bench grinder


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.
