Description

Carbide Cut Off Grinder

Tradesman Machinist (single-wheeled) with ER32 Indexing Tool Holder and carbide cut off wheel

Tradesman Machinist End Mill Workstation

Grind end mill Weldon set screw flats, end mill neck / shank reductions, cut off carbide, end mill corner radius and more. Choose from the single-wheeled or dual-wheeled Tradesman Machinist from the drop down menu above. Corner rads require motor shafts spec’d for greater precision so choose Radius instead of Standard from the drop down menu if you intend to use the profile radius wheels. Choosing Reversing from the menu adds a three-position reverse switch to the grinder – especially useful if you’re running a belt sander.

Single or Dual-Wheeled?

The simplicity of the single-wheeled Tradesman Machinist is a great choice if you’re using it for a few end mill operations, including necks, flats, rads and cut off. All these operations can be carried out on one side of the machine and changing set ups only requires changing grinding wheels (which is easy with only one screw wheel cap).

Choose the dual-wheeled Tradesman Machinist if you want to set up on the other side for lathe tools, countersinks, general purpose HSS grinding or belt sanding (2″ and 4″ belt sanders can be mounted to either side as well). Another example is V-Block for flats on one side and ER32 Tool Holder on the other for necks and cut off.

The single-wheeled Tradesman has the wheel at the operators right hand. The V-block can be mounted on the left or right hand side and T-ER32 Tool Holder can be purchased as left or right hand (left-hand is mounted on the operators left side and right-hand, on the right).

Operations

Weldon Set Screw Flats

The tool you need for a job may not have an important feature: the set screw flat. Quickly add a perfect Weldon set screw flat using the V Block Attachment (Click here for a YouTube video) or the T-ER32i Tool Holder and one of our chamfer wheels (they come in different widths: 1/4″, 3/8″ and 1/2″).

Carbide Cut Off

Cut off your carbide tools with our Diamond Resin Bond Cut Off Wheel or our Diamond Plated Cut Off Wheel. The resin bond wheel will cut more tools while the plated wheel will cut faster. This operation can be done with the V-Block instead of the T-ER-32 Neck Attachement but the attachment offers stability and tool rotation for a quicker and cooler cutting cycle.

Neck Reduction and T-Cutter Creation

Neck reduction: This often needed grind is quick and easy with the Tradesman Machinist T-ER32i Neck Grinding Attachment and one of our diamond plated Shoulder Wheels.  This same set up is perfect for creating your own T-cutter out of a standard end mill with our CBN Shoulder Wheels.

Radius Grinding

Grind rads quickly and easily with our Profiled Radius Wheels. Grind .02″, .03″, .04″, .06″, .09″ and .12″ corner rads.  Our T-ER-32i Neck Grinding Attachment indexes to flute positions for 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 flute end mills and allows you to plunge grind a radius (YouTube video).

The Tradesman Machinist is probably the highest accuracy grinder in its class. Still, the precision required to achieve a good corner radius demands that the motor tolerances are tighter than usual so a motor with this additional accuracy is required at the time of purchase if intended for corner rads.

Belt Sander

Mount one of our three belt sanders to turn your Tradesman into a powerful DC variable speed belt sander. These precision belt sanders can be purchased to mount to the left or right side of the grinder.

Tradesman Belt Sander

Add x-Axis Lever Slide to Workstation

Our Superabrasive wheels are balanced and always flat, so no extra grinding dust. When you use the Tradesman Grinder with it’s DC motor you find you can grind heavy cuts, at below 1000 rpm, keeping the grinding process cool and quiet.  If you want to put a .005 radius/chamfer on something, you can hear when the tool contacts the wheel.
