New Shop Tool: Covel Surface Grinder

#21
Oops...same things apply to boring out a hole, reduce feed rate if tool still burns up or switch to tool steel with 2-3% cobalt, the cobalt really makes for a tough tool. The difference is obvious when you try to grind up a new tip.:)

got the wheel puller done today and it popped off the wheel hub with a few twists of the bolt.

i was thinking about making one of these wheel hubs but
my lathe clearly is under powered.

i need to buy or make a wheel balancer next.
