Toolpost Grinder Part 22: Wheel Guard

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Today we’re making a wheel guard for the toolpost grinder.  I didn’t really want to hog the whole thing out of a solid block of material, and I don’t have a welder, so I decided to 3D-print the parts.  But not on any ordinary 3D printer…

Safety Warning

Please bear in mind that the wheel guard on a grinder is a safety device.  It is there to keep the pieces of a failing wheel from injuring you or worse.  If you decide to build one, please be sure you understand the forces involved and choose your materials and fabrication methods accordingly.
