Surface grinder spindle taper
I have a Rockwell Delta Toolmaker grinder and have an opportunity to buy some more wheel hubs that are not specifically for this grinder. As those of you who use a grinder know there is some value in keeping the hubs affixed to a given wheel (balancing etc) and just swapping out the hub/wheel combination. Is there a standard for the taper (as has been implied to me) such that these hubs from other grinders are likely to fit or are they all different?
Usually I find that the great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from
I don't have all the measurements, but I vaguely remember that the wide end of the tapered bore in the hub I have is .875 and it tapers down to something like .53something on the other side, but do not remember the length of the taper and don't have it here to measure.
thanks in advance!
