SOURCE: how do you wier up a bench grinder

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

SOURCE: I retrieved a Buffalo bench grinder, Model B-6,

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.

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

SOURCE: 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!

It's probably best to disassemble it and clean it up inside, especially if it's never been cleaned inside before.

What are the power source requirements for a DeWalt #756 Grinder?


My experience of bench grinders suggest 15 amp will be enough, certainly at 240 volts . If you are 110 then I think it will still be enough but you dont make clear what the wattage of your machine is.

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.

Bench Grinders Objects


our bench grinder can be used to keep your chisels, knives, gouges and other similar cutting tools sharp, which every woodworker knows is vitally important. Also, bench grinders are handy for sharpening lawn mower blades, drill bits, gardening shears and more. Additionally, a bench grinder can be used for honing and shaping metal objects when modifications are needed. For instance, perhaps you need to modify a door hinge to make it fit in a certain application. No tool is better for this task than a bench grinder.

Bench Grinders Usage


Grinding is the fastest way to deburr a sharp corner or dress the end of threaded rod or bar stock that's been cut to length. Fit a grinder with a wire wheel, and you have a handy tool for removing rust. Then switch to a buffing wheel and you're ready to polish metal to a mirrorlike sheen. But for most of us, grinders are essential for shaping and sharpening hardened tool steel and high-speed steel.

Precision work question


Bench grinders aren't designed for precision work. In fact, they're really freehand tools that rely on a good eye and careful touch. And while you can take some tools, like drill bits or turning tools, right from the grinding wheel to the work, it's common for grinding to be a relatively coarse, preliminary shaping procedure, followed by careful honing on a whetstone.
