    8" Delta Bench Grinder Tables Mods

    The supplied grinding rests are not really that good on these grinders so I made some new ones.
    The left table uses the mounting pieces from the original rest. However you will notice that I
    added an ingot of lead for dampening vibration. Should have made the tables from cast iron
    but I did not have any and I had plenty of aluminum.

    The right hand rest is fully articulating and used for grinding lathe tools (carbide of course since that is where I put the "green"wheel.

    In addition to what is shown I made a couple of steel bushings with integeral flange to reduce vibration.
    The original washers just did not do the trick.

    Cheers, JR
