D-Way Grinding Wheels
« on: March 14, 2019, 07:44 PM »
I ordered an 80 grit and an 180 grit grinding wheel from D-Way. I’m very pleased with the product’s quality.

The shrouds on my Baldor grinder touched the sides of the wheels. I solved the interference problem by inserting two plies of mounting tape between the halves of the shrouds. Problem solved.

Jimmie, the owner of D-Way has been extremely helpful in ordering the wheels and the bushings. It is very important to order the correct bushings as the wheels come with a 1” hole. My Baldor has a 3/4” motor shaft. My bushings fit perfectly. The wheels run with no perceivable vibration.

You really need the shroud with a solid metal wheel.

D-Way says no shroud is needed with their metal wheels. I fitted my shrouds because I am especially cautious. I don’t think the wheels would ever come apart, but the shrouds keep anything from contacting the back of the wheels and causing a problem.

Oops. I left out the word don’t.
