Always unplug the bench grinder before making any modifications or repairs to avoid accidents.
STEP 2: TAKE THE WHEEL GUARD OFF
The wheel guard helps to shield you from the grinder's moving parts and any debris that might fall off the grinding wheel. To remove them, use a wrench to undo the two side bolts.
STEP 3: REMOVE THE GRINDING WHEEL SHAFT'S LOCKNUT
Next, using a wrench, counterclockwise turn the locknut on top of the grinding wheel shaft.
STEP 4: REMOVE THE PREVIOUS GRINDING WHEEL
Once both bolts are removed, you can gently tug on the old grinding wheel to remove it. Be careful to avoid damaging the grinding wheel shaft if it becomes jammed.
STEP 5: MOUNT A FRESH GRINDING WHEEL
First, set a new grinding wheel in the groove at the top of the grinder's body by aligning it properly, then gently press it down until you hear it lock over the two nuts. Then, while holding onto a different area of the grinder's frame, tighten one nut with your wrench in a clockwise direction to guard against damage from being done if there is too much pressure on one side.
STEP 6: UNLOCK THE GRINDING WHEEL SHAFT'S LOCKNUT
Next, use a wrench to turn the locknut on the grinding wheel shaft counterclockwise. Once both bolts are removed, you can gently tug on the old grinding wheel to remove it. Be careful to avoid damaging the grinding wheel shaft if it becomes jammed.
STEP 7: MOUNT A FRESH GRINDING WHEEL
Next, install a new grinding wheel in its right location into the grinder's body groove and gently press down until you hear it lock in place over both nuts.
STEP 8: REPLACE THE WHEEL GUARD
Replace the wheel guard to safeguard you and your surroundings after changing the grinding wheels by merely screwing it back in and tightening the two bolts on either side with a wrench.
STEP 9: TEST THE NEW WHEELS AND PLUG IN THE BENCH GRINDER
After performing all four of the processes above during a bench gripper wheel change, test new replacement grinding wheels to ensure they operate properly before moving on to the next stage.
STEP 10: REMOVE ANY DEBRIS
Tools used in this procedure should be removed before any debris formed during essential repairs or adjustments is cleaned up to prevent depositing dirt and dust in the wrong places and causing injury.
You can quickly and effectively remove an old grinding wheel and replace it with a new one by following above ten simple steps.
