Belt grinder contact wheel tire loose

Recommended Posts

Hello good people

I just picked up an old wilton square wheel grinder for a song.  It has been out in the weather some and the contact wheel serrated tire has loosened from the aluminum wheel.  I tried "goop"  which, after curing for 24hrs. held for about 2 minutes.  I sprayed 3m super 77 on both cleaned abraded surfaces and no go.  Any suggestions out there?

If you will be using this for knifemaking decide if it's worth trying to do a jury rig fix and maybe *eating* a blade when it gives way; or it it would be better to have it professional re-done or even buy a new one.

Yes they are expensive but I could buy a new grinder for the cost of a single ER trip!
