Flat Platen wear plate
Keep your small wheels organized and avoid flat spots.
This version of the articulating tool rest fits the classic KMG grinder as well as others (but I can't say for sure which others).
There is a video with the KMG-TX grinder in this catalog showing the TX version. That gives you a pretty good idea of how it works.
The KMG small wheel attachment (SWF) bolts directly to the top of the tooling
arm. The wheels slide into the fork arms and are interchangeable. The contact
wheels have a 70 durometer rubber surface for smooth operation, excellent
finish, and extended belt life.
NOTE: Small wheels need to run slower due to high revs.
Use caution and slower speeds to prevent damage. Monitor the heat to determine
the best speed for a specific wheel diameter. Smaller wheels require slower
speeds to prevent over heating. Operate at a speed that keeps the bearings cool
enough to comfortably touch.
- Medium hardness, 70-80 Durometer.
NOTE: Small wheels need to run slower due to the high RPMs. Use caution and slower speeds to prevent damage. Monitor the heat to determine the best speed for a specific wheel diameter. Smaller wheels require slower speeds to prevent over heating. Operate at a speed that keeps the bearings cool enough to comfortably touch. By monitoring the bearing temperature, you will be able to run the wheels at a moderate speed continuosly, and faster speeds for brief periods. Do not allow the bearings to become too hot to touch with your bare hand.
