Bench grinder setup Pt. 1

Shortly before Christmas I acquired a new tool for the shop, a Baldor 8100W 8″ slow speed grinder. For almost a decade, I’ve used a no-name 6″ grinder for all my tool sharpening needs. While it always got the job done, it was never a tool I enjoyed using, so the Baldor is going to be a substantial upgrade in more ways than one. In this first video of what will be short series, I discuss truing up the stock flange washers supplied by Baldor, and I show how I made a steel bushing for mounting an aftermarket aluminum oxide wheel.
