View Full Version : Running An Oversize Grinding Wheel

I want to true and clean up this V-block. The only surface I'm facing a problem with is the V. It's too deep for my 7" wheel. When I set the V-block up on my sine table at 45 degrees to grind the V sides the hub is going to hit the edge of the V-block.

I found that same wheel in an 8" dia. x 1/2" x 1 1/4". It should just make it.
The grinder is supposed to run a 7" wheel but there is room for an 8". Does anyone see any harm in running an over size wheel??

Just check the max rpm for the wheel and you should be fine.
