Make your grinder greater
Find balance in your wheels
If you notice vibration, install balancers [Sources] on your grinder wheels, as shown in photo right. Start by mounting your wheel on the balancing flange -- which requires a 1" arbor bore in the wheel -- and securing the three balance bolts in the "4-8-12" clock positions. Next, mount the flange and wheel on the included stand. Starting with the same bolt at the top each time, rotate the wheel gently and let it coast to a stop. If the top bolt consistently returns to the 12 position, adjust the other two bolts toward it slightly to compensate for the out-of-balance weight. Repeat until the wheel stops in random positions.
