    Lightbulb Simple fix to the Grizzly G-1015 Knife Grinder

    This was a simple fix I came up with to add a 3rd wheel to the Grizzly Knife Grinder..

    I looked at the Standard Platen assembly from Grizzly and noted that it had quite a bit of adjustment built into the system already


    I ordered a new mount from Grizzly I actually ordered two because my first thought was to weld this together so I figured an extra one to mess up They ran $18 for both shipped to the house..

    After looking at it a bit I figured out that really it would be better to build a full assembly to hold a 2-4 inch contact wheel that bolted on using the same type of bolts that Grizzly already included... This would allow for more accurate tracking by giving me some adjustment..

    I used a 2.5 inch piece of channel steel and welded in two plates with 1/2 inch holes drilled through, the spacing and straightness was held with a stack of washers and a large vice while the welds were made..

    I ordered in a 2 inch contact wheel from USA Knifemakers which rides on a 1/2 bolt of course

    And now I have the normal Tracking assembly at the top the normal 8 inch or 10 inch contact wheel at the bottom and an adjustable center wheel that can spin a 2-4 inch contact wheel

    The whole thing including shipping came to maybe $80 and gives me a ton of new options for re-grinds and cleaning..


    PICS !!!

    Ahhhhhhh. now I get it. When you were first explaining it to me I couldn't figure out what you were aiming for. Looking at it now makes more sense. Definitely more versatility and excellent thinking outside the box.

    And here I thought that being a third wheel wasn't any good...one thing for sure: These SR guys can be quite ingenious.

    I like it Glen!
