  • Finding Machine Accessories

    Hey guys,

    Picked up a very used surface grinder, I love it but to make it look like my new baby I need to dress it up a little.

    I'm looking for a couple of adjustable handles with a 3/8" stud. A few knobs that have a 3/8" stud coming from them. Knurled knobs.

    Do you guys know of a good place with a good selection that a person can browse around some looking at different types? Also want to get a set of Nice high Quality Toe Clamps.

    Thanks

      Pressurerelief,

      Thanks for posting the link for Carrlane. I used to have one of their catalogs at work and used it often, but I had kind of forgotton about them. I bookmarked a link now.

        Did that make sense?

        Thanks very much, that website is going to be my date for the evening!

          Knobs

          McMaster-Carr has a huge selection of knobs and handles also.

            Reid Supply also has a not bad selection.

            They ship to Canada so for me that works.

              MSC is another. But I don't know your location so that may not work for you.

                I actually already knew about McMaster and was recently told about Reid as well.

                One bad thing about these places is the pictures of their products. If looking for a toe clamp or a adjusting knob, its very hard to know of what quality it is going to be with a black and white drawing of the part.

                I want very heavy duty stuff, and would have to be abused to be hurt. If you buy good stuff and take good care of it, it will most likely last longer than me.

                I have fun looking, reading and learning so the more places the better.

                Thanks very much!

                  Here's a novel idea. You could make some heavy duty ones that are just the way you like them.

                      Don't have the ability to make my own right now. This machine is new to me and I'm excited to have it. Kinda like a kid with a new toy at Christmas, I just wanted to buy a few goodies for it.
