  • Sanford MG, cleanup and assembly.

    A while back I asked about my cheap surface grinder I picked up. Well time has come to clean/paint/reassemble the thing. While the machine is not in new shape and I can tell there is some wear on it already, I am excited to have it in my shop.

    This is my progress so far. I added some adjustable height feet to the base. The original brackets were already gone by the time I got it.





    When you have a hammer etc. Took the opportunity to turn some spacers on the lathe to prevent tube crush.



    New feet ready.

          Did the Sanford come with an electromagnetic chuck?

            It did not come with a Chuck at all. I have a permanent magnet Chuck I will install at the end though.

              engineer3d -

              I watched your youtube videos - nice work. I tried to access your blog, but the link does not work for me.

              I recently purchased a Sanford MG612 myself, so I am very interested in any advice you may have on this machine. I would be especially interested to know the spindle taper on your machine. I measured the taper on my machine as TPF = 2.787" (as opposed to the more common TPF = 3"). I believe some Sanfords have a TPF = 3", and some are like mine, but I am still trying to confirm this. Related to this I contacted Sopko to see if they could provide wheel adapters for my machine, but they said they do not any adapters with my taper in their catalog. Sopko did say they could make a custom adapter for me - I may pursue this further in a few months.

              I'm putting together a web page of all the information I can find on Sanford MG surface grinders generally, and my Sanford in particular. I would very much appreciate help from anyone willing to share information on things like this:
              • grinding wheel adapters - did you build or buy (where?)
              • associated tooling - wrenches, wheel removal tools, etc.
              • useful modifications or improvements you have made
              • tips, suggestions, advice, etc.
              • useful

              web links specific to the MG-612

              Also, for those willing to share information about your specific grinder:
              • serial number
              • when purchased?
              • where purchased (city, state)
              • purchase price
              • condition when purchased, accessories included
              • photos w
              • spindle taper!

              elcome!
