I haven’t tried it yet. All too often the power cords are cut off from the power tools at the scrap yard as this one was. I did notice the treads on one end of the spindle are largely destroyed but there is five or six on the end that are not. One could place a spacer (stack of washers) to take up the damaged area.

In any case I have numerous other wheel grinders from the scrap yard.
Below is a picture of the one I got about two months ago. It is an older Black & Decker 10”, 1 HP, 3 PH. I runs great but is missing one of the rests. A great buy for $9.

Also shown are piles of tube/pipe cutters, hex key wrench sets and flint strikers. Most are spanking new all had for about $2

You got a heck of a nice relationship with your scrap yard.

We used to have one that I called the bank.

You could take as well as drop off, the yard guys gave me some nice metal shelves one day.

Just make sure you weigh less going out.....

I have a similar setup my friend gave me for free.

You need a really powerful compressor to run it effectively. If you don't have that I'd suggest using a "sand blaster gun".

You can make your own for dirt cheap if you have a spare air blower around.

Indeed, however I don’t think this is the reason for the label on the blaster.

I watched a video of a fellow describing the performance of the same blaster. This guy was using some type of sand/abrasive. He showed that a hole had been worn through the mixing device at the bottom of the tank after only a few hours of use.
