Bench Grinder Modifications and Tooling

The bench grinder is a 6" bench grinder from Machine Mart. It is very capable, but the tool-rests that come as standard are (like most bench grinders) rubbish.

  1. Tool Supports: replacing the rubbish tool supports that come with the grinder.
  2. Angle Gauges: 3D printed gauges for setting the angle of the tool supports.
  3. Threading Tool Jig: a simple jig for grinding threading tools.
  4. Tangential Tool Jig: a simple jig for grinding tangential turning tools.
  5. Grinding Rest: an advanced grinding rest for tool grinding.
  6. Grinder Dust Collection: a very simple method of catching some of the grinding dust from the back of the grinder.
  7. Adjustable Dresser: a simple modification that helps with dressing a grinder wheel.
  8. Slow-Speed Grinder: a slow-speed grinder using low-cost diamond grinding discs.
