    You should have a couple of small flanges that fit on the screw, as shown in the bottom piece below:

    Thank you for posting the images of the spindles. Neither of my spindles has a flange on the end but a loose washer might serve the same purpose. But if I mounted a stone between the two flanges of the lower spindle in your image, the fastener would be the spindle axis. In my case either an 6-32 or an 8-32 (don't remember). That would scare me - I see the stone whipping for a second or two before the fastener failed from fatigue. I am looking to mount something in the 3/4 inch diameter by 1/4 inch wide as a grinding wheel/stone. Maybe the spindle is intended for something sized like a Dremel accessory.

      This may give some indication of what you can mount on which.....

        If your stone is running that out of true, Stop. Something is wrong.
        You might have 5 or 10 thousandths of runout before dressing.
        Any more, you need to investigate things.
        And do your initial dress at the lowest speed.

          Thank you for posting the link to the instructions - I read thru them quickly and I've saved them off for future in depth reading. The chart on wheel size/thickness/overhang was useful - I just need to scale it down for my grinder.

            The grinder with the sewing machine motor looks like a Dumore, the #4 or 5. You have the casting upside down.
            Your 2AG is looks like it is missing some of the mounting parts. Both appear in a catalog from the mid 30's

                Yes looking at the images provided, I agree the casting looks upside down - that is the way it was configured when I bought it and I never saw it as a potential Dumore or "clone". I searched for Dumore #4 and #5, I found no info at all about the #4. Saw a few links that I followed, but no images, for a Dumore #5 over on PM.

                Not visible in the image I attached , but the Durmore 2AG has a dovetail base - above the leg for the rocker arm. Does the catalog give any specific use for this grinder? Could I impose and ask you to take a quick camera phone image of the catalog page? Just a bit curious about the original purpose of the 2AG.

                  Hmmm.
                  I have two Dumore grinders. Maybe a 4 and 5 . \

                  Both too big for my lathe. Oh well.. I tried,, JR
