Grinders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Mmmm... that's a little more complicated. If you have a continuity / resistance meter, we can noodle it out, though.

First, are the two white wires the ONLY wires coming from the motor? I suspect they are - that's not in conformance with any accepted color code, but it'll work. For the rest of this, I'll assume that the two white wires are the only ones from the motor.

You'll need to meter the switch itself, with no wires connected to it. In the OFF position, you shouldn't find continuity between any of the four switch contacts. In the ON position, you should find continuity between two pairs of contacts.

The black wire from the power cord should go to ONE of the two switch contacts in a pair that have continuity with the switch turned ON. One (either) of the white wires from the motor should go to the other switch contact IN THAT PAIR.

That leaves you with one more pair that has continuity with the switch turned ON. The white wire from the power cord goes to one of those, and the second white wire from the motor goes to the other one.

When you have it all wired up, plug it in & turn it on. If it's not right, it should immediately pop your circuit breaker. If it IS right, it should run fine.

If it pops your circuit breaker, open it back up and swap one wire from the power cord and one wire from the motor.

Request the wiring diagram from the manufacturer/distributor.

Usually, 4 wires are multi-directional neutral and earth are usually colours the other 2 are both live and would need to go through a switch. you can of course put the other live in a cover and just use one live wired as usual into a plug. Make sure the spare wire is well protected ie in a jb with plenty of tape around it

I have used a double-ended bench grinder for years with only a single wire brush, without problems.

Depends what parts are needed. Spare parts for something that goes wrong so rarely can be difficult especially if the machine is imported. Some parts will be fairly universal and so fairly easy to obtain - nuts, flanges, abrasive wheels, bearings, capacitor (if fitted) and possibly even the switch and tool rests.

Yes I do. Do not over tighten the H and L needles you will ruin the needle seats (clockwise closes the needle jet, counter clockwise opens the needle jet) There is no air mixture needle on a chainsaw carb (2 cycle engine) all are gas mixture needles H - high speed operation, L - low speed operation. [The saw carburetor operates like a 4 barrel carb on a 350 chevy, runs on 2 but kicks in all 4 when you hammer it.] Turn the H needle to 1(one) full turn open (counter clockwise). Turn the L needle to 1 1/4 (one and one quarter) turn open (counter clockwise). NEVER EVER close the H needle to less than 3/4 open or the L needle to less than 1 turn open. If you do you will burn the saw up from lack of oil lubrication. [I have several Jonsereds saws a 52E, 451EV, 49SP, 520SP, 621 race saw, 630, 70E, 70E race saw, 80E and last but not least a 90E. I worked many years for the importer and distributor of Jonsereds as a Territorial Rep. All my saws run like a top. My newest saw is a 1984. I chainsaw carve and cut firewood with all of them year round. In short I like-em, they're the best.] I find that all my saws run the best and strongest with the carb set at around 7/8 turn open on the H needle and just above 1 turn open on the L needle. The idle screw I set last after the saw responds correctly to the carb settings. I quick throttle the saw to make sure the saw picks up RPM and doesn't fade out, put in a log to make sure it maintain tourque under load and not bogg down (tweak the H & L if needed, remembering the 7/8 - 1 1/4 rule I adjust the idle screw to where the saw sound smooth and un-labored at idle. I never let it idle to where the chain moves when it idles. For safety reasons. Hope this helps. EdN

Quick fix..eliminate switch and hook it up direct. Plug it into a cheap power bar that has an overload switch. Use THAT switch to control on/off on grinder

That entire older Buffalo line of grinders: N-10CB, B-8CB, B-6CB, bgbr-6cb all use the same push pull switch. Most of those grinders were dual-voltage with a starter capacitor and there are 6 wires connected to a 4 contact switch. The "Jet BGS8-076" grinder switch that is used by the older Buffalo's, Galaxy, Duracraft and TestRite grinders is no longer available.
The good news is that there is a replacement switch from another manufacturer: "3030-9001 push pull switch for RDX grinders" from Wholesale Tool is a direct replacement. It has the same 4-screw contacts on the back and the same push-pull diamond pattern front plate.
