  • vac. attach. for T&C grinder

    I had posted this "over there", and thought it would be useful here also.There was concern about plastic hoses and vac fire, but I explained that I use this only for dressing the wheel and small dry grinding(very rarely).
    I use flood coolant almost always except when dressing the wheel and can easily move the nozzle out of the way.

      What you REALLLY oughta be worried about is whether that support arm is big enough to hold "Daffy" in place.......

      Seriously, where did you get "Daffy", --- I can see that being handy in a few other applications.

      ------GEEEZ, that SURE is a CLEAN machine!!
      If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something........

        I would be less concerned with the plastic hose being a fire issue than I would a hot spark entering a vaccuum cleaner that may have some other dust in it. If you have a dedicated vac, its probably a non issue. I thought about using either my shop vac or my dust collector with a water trap in line (a can with one of those cheap plastic quasi-cyclone lids) to create a place that should result in all of the grit not making it to the vaccuum. I then thought about all the room I don't have for all of that and all the vaccuum hose running all over to be hooked up each time I use the grinder and sort of dismissed it.

        My general understanding was that tool grinding was typically done dry which was the reason I was concerned. I have one of the Rockwell-Delta Toolmaker grinders that hopefully some day will do double duty as both a cutter grinder and surface grinder. My thinking was along the lines of what you are doing, with surface grinding perhaps being done wet.

        Thanks for the pictures.

        The snap-together dust collection stuff is items that are available at a lot of woodworking supply places like www.woodcraft.com. You can also make quite a few quick "hoods" out of round to square sheet metal duct fittings.
