Adjustsettings on Oregon 511AX bench grinder


there is a nut and bolt that holds the little shelf below the grinding wheel. Loosen it and adjust the shelf or rest to within approximate ly1/8 inch of wheel for safety.

Both wheels have a noticeable wobble. Can this be corrected?


Yes, the wobble can be fixed. First, remove both wheels and check the shaft bearings/bushings for wear. Make certain the grinder is unplugged and mounted securely. Try moving the shafts up, down side to side; there should be little or no noticeable movement. If there is movement it is a major(time and money) problem. I'm not familiar with what the shafts ride on. It could be, ball bearings(the best-long lasting, least friction, most accurate, but expensive), sealed bearings(almost as good as ball bearings, with many of the same attributes) and bushings(least expensive to produce and fit and cause the most friction. If excessive up,down side to side movement is present a decision must be made as to how much money/time you want to invest. If the shaft exhibit little movement; check if the shaft is running true/straight. Turn the grinder by hand while observing the shaft for bends. If none are seen by eye use a magnetic base micrometer to check run out(deviation from straight). If a micrometer isn't available; bend a short length of wire(coat hanger works nicely) with a small hook on one end and then put a pointer end on the other. Put a screw thought the end with the hook to mount it to the base of the grinder. Then bend the pointed end so it just touches the shaft. Rotate the shaft and notice if the distance changes between the point of the wire and the grinder shaft. Repeat for the other side. A couple of thousands won't hurt. However, any more and the cost effectiveness of tearing the grinder apart straightening the shaft must be considered. The most common cause of grinding wheel wobble is the wheels becoming out of true and/or unbalanced. This is easily cured with a wheel dressiing tool. The tool grinds the wheels in place. By gringing the wheels on the grinder they balance the wheel, true the wheel to the shaft and clean it of imbeded soft materials, aluminum, wood and so forth.

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.

It always grinds very fine. I am unable to change the coarseness of the grin.


That one is hard to explain but I will try. On the front of the grinder is the adjustment wheel, on the wheel is a small screw, if you put your hand on the wheel it might be about 1/4 inch from the front, back up screw about 1/2 turn or more then make sure the grinder is on 3 or espresso, make sure you can pull out front part of the wheel ONLY. If not back up screw a little more and try again, now that it can move freely without moving the numbers, pull it out and turn it to about 5 or 6 then turn grinder on and very SLOWLY, (This is the dangerous part do not go to fast or you could damage the grinder) turn towards trukish grind when you get close you will hear the burrs slightly touching. Back off the knob a little just before the touching part and turn grinder off. Then pull knob out and turn it to turkish and set screw.

Hi,

First, make sure you not get any damp into your grinder.
If you get damp into the grinder then it will not grind the beans.

To check the grinder you have to loosen the three screws in the beanhopper and lift it up.
The jagged plastic in the machine you will see when the beanhopper is off, turn it anticlockwise to you can see
the claque is free, then you can take out the jagged plastic and you will see the grinding wheel, make sure the wheel and the jagged plastic is clean.

Before you mount all again, use a vacuum cleaner to clean it.

Put back the jagged plastic again and turn it clockwise to it stop, then you turn it anti clockwise 14"click".
Set the number to 8 on the beanhopper and mount it again.

Hope this will help you.

Best regards
/Mirran

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.
