    It's way too volatile for me to want to actually invest in it, however I bought some bitcoin over a year ago just to learn how it works and understand it better ... forgot about it, logged in a year...

    I suspect what's happened is that when I took the grinder out of storage a couple years ago and replaced the old grey wheels with the white ones that the new ones have always been troublesome, with...

    It seems fine without wheels, only measured 0.01 mm wobble with the gauge rotating unpowered.

    It's about 20 years old, but has been little used for much of that time.

    I spent a lot of time trying to dress the previous wheels but the vibration made it near impossible so I'm not in a hurry...
  7. Should I throw my Abbott & Ashby out or persist with trying to service it?

    Happy I got to spend some time in the garage yesterday after months of being too busy elsewhere or having to deal with rodents and rodent damage in the garage.

    I ended up getting the Geiger Tru-N-Dress but unfortunately, I couldn't correct the wobble. So I replaced both wheels. Brand new, and it still wobbles. So ... guess it's time for a new grinder!

    Thanks Chris, never heard of CBN wheels. Will look into it, although I use my bench grinder for all sorts of things so don't want to put something on it that means it's not all-purpose, though I'm...

    No no, grinder is bolted to bench. I mean vibration is causing things on the bench like angle gauge etc to fall off the bench.

    Also, that video is gruesome. But sobering.

    Thanks I'll do that too. I've just been using one of those carborundum sticks till now. When I say "Brand new" well, 6 months but used infrequently.

    It's a brand new aluminium oxide wheel so shouldn't be failing; I wasn't familiar with the concept of truing grinding wheels till recently.

    I suspect I need to spend more time truing my grinding wheel - I suspect it's getting nicked from high spots on the wheel - the fact that things often go bouncing off the table from vibration is...

    The dog is 18.8mm - it's the spring that's the problem; maybe I can use a Dremel sanding drum and just open the top of the hole a bit.
  28. Are you sure 19mm is right for a 3/4 bench dog?

    The Timbecon website and everything I've read says a 19mm hole is fine for 3/4" bench dogs, but mine are getting jammed in tight, requiring pliers to extract them from the workbench.
