I would suggest (just from you saying you dont know wireing that well) you should have someone else do it. But if you are determined white to white black to black(or red) make sure you are grounded and check amp to make sure you have the right breaker. I think you should get someone to help you as electrical fires are #1 on home fires .
I hope I helped

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the information on bench grinders. I will now give it a try without worrying that I am overlooking a routine maintenance or other issue!"
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.

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!
