Machine conversion looking for advice

Recommended Posts

I've got an Abrasives Machinery Corp 3B surface grinder.  It looks like the turret from a battleship, and takes up about that much space :wub: .


I've been wanting to convert it to a 2 x 72 belt (I've got LOTS of used, but not used up belts).  I need a contact wheel.  The issue is this:


The end of the drive shaft has a 1.125 x .750 threaded stub machined on it.  I assume that I will have to have a wheel made.   I also assume that I need at least a third of the stub clear to hold the wheel on the shaft.  If I were a machinist I could make such a wheel, but I don't think my skills are up to the job. 


So I need advice on where to get a contact wheel.  Anyone?



Thanks in advance,
