Building A Surface Grinder
by: Bruce Holmquist
This is a surface grinder that I have made out of a micro milling machine that I was not using.
I simply made an aluminum adapter to fit a right angle grinder to the column and attached a roller bearing slide table to machine
table. I mounted a 5" x 8" magnetic chuck to the slide table.
You can slide the table back and forth with one finger. The machine downfeed and crossfeed are used. I did not think that a cheap angle
grinder would give a very good finish but to my surprise, it did. I have ground the chuck and get accurate flat grinding results.
