Ok, so I need to pick the collective brains of you guys. I make some machine accessories that need to have a radius ground on them. Currently I use a modified cylinder grinder that has the main motor disabled and used as a centre. The radius is roughly 4 inches long but only a partial radius. The part has a base plate welded to it so the part canít be totally revolved and prohibits anything revolving completely around. I could carry on using the current machine but itís a two hour round trip for half an hours work. I really want to try and make something so I can do it all in house, preferably desk top sized. I attach some photos which will hopefully make it more obvious. The yellow line is how far the grind needs to go and the yellow hole is the pivot point. The radius needs to be pretty accurate as another plate runs over it making the slot at the top fluid tight. Itís not watertight but needs to keep liquid plastic at 180 degrees in! If anyone can suggest a machine I can build from readily available parts or a machine I can cannibalise I would be grateful. i would prefer something using a grinding wheel rather than a belt as I think a wheel would be more accurate. I only have a hobby mill and lathe but have access to most machines.
