Adding urethane to a grinder drive wheel question.


Recommended Posts

What's your goal in using the urethane?

You might get away with it using the special bandsaw tire adhesive and doing a scarf joint.  I wouldn't bet the farm on it due to the greater heat involved in sanding but if you decide to take a shot, that's the way I'd go.

When it's all said and done, it's likely cheaper to see out the proper wheel replacement.

This is the grinder


I'm just not sure the bottom wheel was intended to be used as a contact wheel to be honest. But I have used it as such and some times its hard to do any finish work on it because there is no "cushion" and it will leave some deeper grind marks than I like. So I thought if I could get at least a little bit of a layer of urethane in there it would help that out.

I half way looked at trying to replace the wheel but I think it would be more trouble than its worth. Probably just be better off building a decent grinder. Basically I'm just trying to put that off ;)

Thanks for the suggestion.
