I bought some cheap diamond stones from China for my tool and cutter grinder but they are supplied without plastic bushings. The wheels are 20 mm diameter and the grinder shaft is ½”. I have been working on a project which needs some special cutters making, so at last I have had to make a bushing so the wheels can be mounted on the grinder. I could have sourced and purchased some but a 20 minute job to make one from steel I couldn’t see the point.
This is a very simple turning and drilling exercise and will last.
I have purchased a spin indexer which I will be using to make the cutters so once this arrives I will post the modifications I intend to make to it to mount on the grinder.
I have also found a great post Homemade Tool & Cutter grinder (with a difference). from Tony Foale on modifications he has made. So a big thank you to him.
