Description

This Strap on Surface Grinder Attachment is one of the most popular attachments for belt grinders. The surface grinder can assist you in descaling/flattening billets, tapering tangs, adding distal tapers to knife blades and evenly achieving a given thickness over the length of a blade. Features a 5″ contact wheel and magnetic chuck face* which can be adjusted to provide a taper.

Does not include a tool arm. The specific tool arm to suit your belt grinder can be purchased via the following links:

Note: This is a precision grinder attachment made to remove small amounts of material at a time. It is recommended you don’t try to remove more than 0.10 mm of material (1/12 a turn of the adjustment knob) per pass of the surface grinder. Removing more can cause overheating of your work piece and the magnetic chuck, potentially damaging the chuck face. For precise removal, a Digital Travel Indicator can be purchased and fitted to an existing mount on the surface grinder.

Features

  • Machined for precision. Made to be able to remove material with incredible accuracy. Allows billet widths to be defined precisely. Is great for those working with forge welded steel and looking for specific material thicknesses
  • Can be used for multiple purposes beyond just making items flat and to a specific width. Other uses include tapering for both tangs and distal tapers, scale removal for forged work and efficient high grit finishes on the flats of a knife
  • Magnetic chuck face with 50 x 300 mm of magnetised area to place steel on. Magnets are strong enough to ensure steel does not move while being worked on. Comes with a safety guard. This ensures work pieces don’t shoot out if too much material is removed in one pass. Chuck face is adjustable, allowing for precision angles. This is ideal for grinding in tapered tangs and even distal tapers in blades
  • Australian made by 84 Engineering
  • Product support available from our experienced service team

Comes with:

  • Strap On Surface Grinder Attachment
  • 5″ Contact Wheel
  • Magnetic Chuck Face
  • Chuck Face Side

* The magnetic chuck face will require truing upon setting up, otherwise it may not be perfectly perpendicular to your 5″ contact wheel. Care needs to be taken not to overheat your chuck face while doing this as it can cause the chuck face to bow. Instructions on this are available in the video below.

Replacement Chuck Face is available. Also, a digital manual for the product can also be made available on request.

    Was thinking of making my own but a sale came along so I splashed out. Serious bit of gear to add to your 72″ grinder.
