SOURCE: Bench Grinders Safety issues

Goggles or safety glasses need to be worn to protect the operator's eyes from the sparks and metal filings that result. Depending on the workpiece and time of exposure, hearing protection may also be required, the dust produced is also potentially hazardous. The toolrest (or workrest) should be mounted slightly below the center of the grinding wheel with less than 3 mm clearance from the wheel. This prevents the work from jamming between the toolrest and the wheel. Grinding wheels designed for steel should not be used for grinding softer metals, like aluminium. The soft metal gets lodged in the pores of the wheel and expand with the heat of grinding. This can dislodge pieces of the grinding wheel. Wire brushes require particular attention for the safety of the operator and bystanders as the metal wires may become dangerous projectiles as they could bind with the object being brushed and so throw it away with great energy. The machine needs to be securely mounted to a pillar or a bench to be used safely and effectively, often with an emergency stop switch or pedal fitted close by the machine, for use in emergencies.

SOURCE: Given a bench grinder which did not work. How to test/fix?

I cleaned all the wiring connectors etc and used a 4-way extension cord with an i/o switch and thermal/arc breaker surge protector thingy. I had a piece of thick cable with a molded three prong plug which I had removed from a dead paper shredder (I think??) and connected the ground to the case (previously not connected) the black to the black and white to the white. I taped the connections and plugged the test cable into the extension thingy with its switch off and plugged it into the wall outlet. Then, with the grinder switch on, I gingerly switched on the extension thingy and the grinder (sans all moving parts) ie just the motor case and spindle (held securely in the B&D workmate) and viola(!) it worked fine and built up to very fast. I switched off the grinder switch and the motor slowed, taking an age to come to rest.
Then, I fitted a grinding wheel on the left hand thread end, tightened everything and retested, using the grinder switch to start it and it spun really fast.
Soooo, I guess the secure ground is an essential feature of a capacitor induction motor. I checked some old furnace motors that were "maturing" in the basement and they had no capacitor but only 2 wires...
I am now trying to remember which parts came off last and put it all back together. I plan to test it each time I put a part back...just in case. I hate it when you fix something on the bench and when rebuilt, it won't work...don't ask about the electric starter on the snowblower..not a happy puppy!
Please, pretty please and then some, do tell me if my "fix" is wrong and I could risk all kinds of nastiness.
Thanks,
Jenni.

SOURCE: switch and capacitor crapped out on 1/2 hp Sears bench grinder

Replacement should be simple. Just do a one for one hookup with the new part, after you unplug it first.

SOURCE: Need part numbers to replace eyeshields on Dayton bench grinder

Your grinder is listed on page 3085 of the Grainger catalogue. The part number for the eyeshield is 00281.00 and the number for the lower eyeshield bracket is 00280.00. The right hand upper eyeshield bracket is number 25188.00 and the upper left hand bracket number is 25177.00. All of this can be ordered through Grainger at 1-800-323-0620. Marvin T.

Replace missing switch on bench grinder


2 wires are not needed to use they are the wires of an supression capacitor on the switch then there are 2 wires from your power cable and 2 that goes to your motor that 4 you only you have to use you can also connect the 2 wires from the s-capacitor with te wires on the motor together thats is how its also correct, (but best is to remove it because its only for suppression for FM ukw radio signals and everybody has DAB+ and the change to have short-circuit is reduced.

How to wire the switch up on a dewalt dw758 bench grinder


That's pretty straightforward - the black wire from the power cord goes to one (either) side of the switch, and the black wire headed into the motor goes to the other side of the switch.

I have a 1/3 hp motor with a capacitor. There are four motor leads coming out of motor, the capacitor is mounted in the wiring box. This motor does not have a centrifugal switch, to isolate the capacitor...


I am in the process of replacing a capacitor on a Craftsman 6 in 1/3 grinder, 2.8 amp, single phase, 110v. Not sure on the centrifugal switch. model 319.190621, ser B9530. When I took the old one out the black wire from the capacitor went to the cluster of back wires (in my case 3) in the wire nut. The blue wire from the grinder went to red wire from the capacitor in a wire nut. Hope that helps you....

Maybe you can help me... the specs on the capacitor burned off when it failed. Can you tell me what the capacitor specs are on yours?

I have a Cummins 1/2 hrs.bench grinder in pieces. 3 wires from the inside - Black, red, and blue. A capacitor with two male connectors on the end and a switch. How does it need to be wired?


The capacitor goes across the Line, terminals, of the Motor, The Black, should Be Neutral, the RED should be Power IN to the Switch, and the Blue, the "Other" side of the switch. The Capacitor, sometimes goes on the Spare (If any) Terminals of the "Cold" side of the Power Switch.
International color code is Red Positive or Phase, Blue, Phase or Positive, Black, usually Neutral, Negative .
The capacitor is a Suppression" capacitor,and is usually "Across the Motor terminals on "Cold" or "Switched" side of the circuit.
The circuit is simple, Neutral is "Common" the Power comes in to the Switch Contact, whereby the activation of said switch, joins the "Contacts" to the Phase. Positive, Wire to the "Motor". The "Other Terminal Wire from the Motor, goes to Common. The capacitor. Is installed in Parallel with the Phase and Neutral on the "Cold" or normally unpowered side of the circuit.

How do you wier up a bench grinder


I would suggest (just from you saying you dont know wireing that well) you should have someone else do it. But if you are determined white to white black to black(or red) make sure you are grounded and check amp to make sure you have the right breaker. I think you should get someone to help you as electrical fires are #1 on home fires .
I hope I helped

On outside compressor for whole house AC: Critters ate wires. Have Blk & Red power in from breaker. 24vac switched from thermostat. 1 contactor with 24vac coil(original). 1 Capacitor w/ 3 terms...


There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the access panel. If you can't read it, check online for model wiring diagram. Don't guess, you may cause more expensive damage.

Grinder starts and stops on startup


if this is a cap start motor and not a centrifugal start run motor then bad cap is good place to start
