Default Another addition to the shop

I have been watching for a Harig spin indexer for some time, well before I had even bought the surface grinder.

It’s strange, they are a very useful item for a toolroom shop, maybe because of this they don’t go up for sale often.

They are available new, the motorized one starts at $1750 US, and then accessories such as sine plates etc are also pricey.

I found one a while back, with the motor, a sine plate, and some other accessories.

Talking with the seller, and he was retiring from business, and had some other stuff for sale.

Soo.....

There was one grinding wheel fatality, all in all much better than I feared.

The seller wouldn’t ship across the border, so I setup with a shipping outlet in Sweet Grass, Montana so I could pick it ip there. From Fort Mac yesterday morning at 4:30 am, I was there just after 2pm. Back across with no hassles, and home about 9 pm, and about 1600 kms/1000 miles of driving.

Between what I have already, and this additional stuff, I can now setup to grind endmills, reamers, pins, bushings, etc.

It’s not that I’m looking for it as an income, more as something that I enjoy, and like so many things, I believe it’s a skill that we are losing as time goes on.

I’m also frugal, and generally can find dull tooling cheap or for free, and this will let me play in the shop and keep my expenses down.

Just for shits and giggles I threw a brazed carbide lathe tool in a vise on the surface grinder. Mounted one of the diamond wheels and it cuts the carbide almost as easy as a hot knife in butter.

Will pick up a good quality dust mask in the morning, then have a bunch more to do.

What grit is the diamond wheel you used on the brazed carbide?

Will check in the morning. Grit is only one part of the factor, concentration, bonding agent (the glue) are also parts of it.

I got four diamond wheels in the deal, three for sure are Norton. Two are brand new, though I have to make bushings to use them.

+1. Maybe I should talk my boss into getting a diamond wheel instead of the green wheel for hand sharpening the carbide bits we use.

I too, seem to have to make bushings yearly for different grinding wheel applications. Can I be your second customer?
