That's a bummer Eric,

I hope it all works out, having a surface grinder that produces a crappy finish isn't much good. Hopefully Papa Griz gets it sorted out for you.

Juniper berries, oh my, they make a man do  BAD things :lolb: :mischief: :Jester:. Dave O, exactly, that's the reason I bought a surface grinder was for the finish. Now y'all explain this ABC's of grinding wheels to me.

Dam my brother, I thought you had that all taken care of. Bummer that you have to cry to them to get a motor from them. I hope that's the only problem you have with it. Of coarse the new motor will give us an answer. Stay cool my brother it will pass.

This isn't a new marketing issue  :facepalm:

Many years ago I purchased my first 1/4 HP bench mounted 3/8 chuck capacity pedestal drill

Opened the box to find an additional 1/4 HP motor marked 240/50...... :slap:

OK that made sense for OZ electricity rang the sales agent only to be told.......

"Some drills were fitted with unmarked motors that were actually wound for 110/60  ...    & the motors may burn out when started for the first time :zap:....so we have included a replacement 240/50 motor just in case"  :ThumbsDown: .....Derek

I am hoping the motor is all that's the matter Whiskey. For grinding applications they obviously need to be well balanced or the best spindle in the world will transmit some vibration. Keep us posted once the new motor comes in and is in place.

You did good with the warranty Eric.

Several years ago when I was in UK, JohnSom (HMEM) gave me one of the pens he had made. When it ran out of ink a couple of months ago, I rang him to complain and was told that the 30/30 warranty was 30 seconds or 30 paces whichever came first!

Too bad about the motor, but hopefully the new one will do the trick. I heard somewhere (maybe on HSM or possibly DIYelectricCar) that the Chinese admit to not making very good motors. But there always seem to be many brand name motors on eBay for quite cheap, although mostly I have been looking at three phase. They are probably your best bet anyway, along with a VFD that will work on single phase. A good three phase motor should have very little torque ripple, and with good bearings and a balanced rotor, there should be practically no vibration.  8)
 
Soon you will be grinding metal, and not your teeth!  :cheers:

Just thought I would give y'all a little update. I awoke this morning to a shipping confirmation from good old Grizzy. It left WA. state last night and is expected to arrive by end of day June 30. Boys, that's 17 days since I reported the problem. I ain't a real happy camper with old papa Grizz (if you're reading). You would think they might have sprung for a little extra on the shipping, but, oh no, good old UPS ground. I sure hopes this fixes it.

That's pretty slow Eric, but look at it from the positive side...at least it ain't coming over on a slow boat from China :)

Well, me being a sharing person, I thought I'd share some of my misery with y'all. I got the new motor yesterday and now because it's quieter I can hear all the vibration and noise coming from the machine. You can feel it even down in the heavy cast iron base and all the way up to the Z feed hand wheel. I got on the phone with tech support and since my shop is a metal building, cell service sucks and you have to stand near a window. Well, I left the grinder running and ask the tech if he could hear that noise. He said yeah, but, please don't tell me that's the grinder I'm hearing. You are darn tooting it is and he couldn't believe it, then he really freaked out when I told him I was 12 feet away from the machine. They pulled the motor off of a new grinder in stock at their Wa. warehouse, so, now it looks like they are going to be robbing it's spindle also. The saga continues.

Maybe you need to do a few odds and ends on your model rather than fighting with these   :Doh: tools

Well Whiskey

You are a far more patient man than I am , That grinder would have been wheeled out side, supplier rang up and told in no uncertain terms come and fetch it back at their expense , my cash is perfect so should the new machine

Here in the UK you can make life difficult with guarantee claims for a refund if you accept a repair , not sure about the lemon law in the States


Stuart

My aim is for a accurate part with a good finish
