Baldor carbide grinders and Asian knockoffs...Do their parts Interchange...does anyone know?

I would suspect that if one needs replacement parts (like I do), the Harbor Freight/Enco route would be cheaper.

So do they interchange?

I don't know. Send me your Baldor carbide grinder and I'll let you know. ;)

I would bet not.

Well they just might...

If you assume that the copiers of the Baldor used original Baldor parts as their originals to make the sand molds for the subsequent castings, many of the "breakable" parts "may" fit.

Has anyone tried?

TMT, don't do much casting do you,It will be smaller due to shrinkage,this is the same reason I think it will not, Tha fact its metric is also a factor.
