Got it tucked away in a corner for now.

I have a machine trade in the works. My Hybco grinder for a Cincinnati 9x48 radial drill.

If I can find a trailer to haul the drill on.


Seems like I can't rent a flat deck trailer. :rolleyes:

I don't know what the Hybco grinder is, I would hard pressed to get rid of it.
radial drills come in go..... not so much on that type of grinder

You can make your own endmills with it. I feel it's overly complicated for anything I'd ever use it for. I mostly got it for the tool cabinet that came with it. That stays. :)

You could sharpen all the milling cutters that you bought. :D

Don't cut your self short.

Grinders are not my field but they are not all that complicated ... BUT always wear a face shield!.... the stones can and will explode and take your face off!


In one of your threads you need a dovetail cutter (special angle) to make a Gib for your mill, you acquired a pallet of angled cutters as I see it you may be able to regrind the angle you need on one of the cutters you have, hard to tell but this grinder may do it.

Looks like a motorized spin fixture that would be nice to grind hardened shafts , maybe punch pins, spools for hydraulic valves.

If the grinder is in good shape best to keep it.
I would think you are more likely to have people that need a hardened shaft sized than needing a hole drilled with a radial drill.

That is what I was thinking resharpening cutting tools, too.

As memtioned, it’s a tool and cutter grinder. Making a cutter from scratch on one is doable, but a lengthy process, there are specialty machines out there for that.

Resharpening is where they shine, if: 1.) you have all the parts and pieces required
2.) you know what you’re doing, and really understand cutting tool geometry.

The last place I worked that was setup for it was the diecasting shop, even with likely 30 machinists (manual and cnc) they phased it out, was more cost efficient to buy new at that time. As prices are steeply increasing, that may change.

There are resharpening services out there too, many you can ship stuff to and they ship back when it’s done. They also can often modify existing tools for a specific use.

I agree with the others to hold onto the grinder especially with all that big iron you have. It will be good for sharpening bits. I don't know what the drill press is but a mill will do everything a big ol' drill press will do. I've seen 4 station production drill presses go for less than $100 at auction as CNC has made them obsolete...

My vote would be to keep grinder too. You are collecting old machines, I believe to help keep the past from being scrapped. And you want to learn the ways of the old. That grinder is one of the old ways.

There's another cutter grinder I need to bring home that was in the shop with the lathes came out of. Very close to a K.O Lee BA960. Also have a pending trade for my Hammond Mercury Trim-O-Saw for a Hammond carbide tool grinder.
