Bench grinders are suitable for shaping, grinding and sharpening metal tools, tips, sheets and pieces in refurbishing, manufacturing and maintenance applications. These grinders generally feature an abrasive grinding wheel or belt that runs at high speeds to form, shape or smoothen a workpiece.
Dayton bench grinders use an electric motor for deburring, grinding, cleaning, sharpening and chamfering jobs of metal blocks or pieces. They have dynamically balanced armature assembly with sealed bearings for ensuring smooth running, noiseless operation and minimum vibrations. These Dayton grinders are equipped with grinding wheels or a wire brush having a large wheel to wheel clearance and OSHA compliant wheel guards for easy grinding of longer items and increased user safety. Dayton grinders have two separate wheels having different grit sizes for catering to diverse types of grinding & abrasive applications. They have heavy duty enclosed motors with 1/3 to 3 hp power outputs for rotating the wheels continuously at maximum speeds ranging from 1725 to 3450 rpm. The motors can also be fitted with a variable speed, controlled by a mechanical dial to change the wheel rotation speed. These Dayton bench grinders can be adjusted easily by the users to allow efficient tilt & angle grinding applications. They also have safety features like adjustable safety eye shields & easily positioned spark guards with hurricane bolts for protecting users & surrounding machinery from injuries or fire hazards. These Dayton grinders have aluminium & steel or cast iron construction for strength & corrosion resistance. Selected Dayton grinders have a pedestal floor stand with a quench tray for operating the unit while standing & reducing frequent bending related injuries to users. Some models of Dayton grinders come with a patented single dust port collection system for cleaning away grounded materials from the industrial work environments.
Choose from a wide range of these Dayton grinders, available in wheel diameters of 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches.
Dayton grinders are suitable for deburring, grinding, cleaning, sharpening and chamfering alloy or carbon metal pieces. It is generally used in construction, maintenance & refurbishing applications. Dayton grinders are also used to remove rust and even out rough edges on metal surfaces.
Dayton bench grinders can grind the metal pieces & tools to a desired shape & angle by following these steps:
- After switching the Dayton bench grinder On, apply steady, moderate pressure on the workpiece and keep it moving at an even pace over the grinding wheels for smooth grinding.
- Do not press the workpiece too hard over the wheels as that may lead to overheating of the motor & premature wearing of the grinding wheels.
- Set the desired speed level of wheel rotation using the optional speed dial. Users should set low speeds when performing cleaning, polishing, sharpening & other finishing operations and set high speeds for heavy duty material removal, deburring and chamfering applications.
- Users should try to maintain the original bevel angle on the item to be sharpened. Burrs from the sharpened cutting edges should also be removed.
- Deburring of edges is done by pulling the burr edges of the workpiece across the bevel angle.
- Users should position the workpiece such that the grinding wheel rotates into the object being sharpened.
- The workpiece should be regularly dipped in a coolant to prevent overheating that can cause weakening of the metals.
- Dayton bench grinders have two abrasive grinding wheels and a wheel with a wire brush for shaping or smoothening alloy / carbon metal workpieces.
- These wheels come with grit sizes ranging from 30 to 120 for improved and fine grinding.
- They are powered by a totally enclosed ball bearing motor to rotate the wheels at a single speed / variable speeds for removing materials from small areas and irregularly shaped bumps.
- Selected bench grinders come with a single point dust collector for filtrating out grounded dust and ensuring a clean working environment.
- These grinders are integrated with an emergency Off switch to cut off the power supply during emergencies.
- These Dayton bench grinders are equipped with a pedestal foot stand having a quench tray for clearing up workbench spaces and storing a coolant.
- Raptor Supplies can deliver replacement parts like brackets, capacitors, hex nuts, flange screws for replacing faulty or worn out parts of Dayton grinders.
- We also supply dust collector hoses and hose extension kits to attach to dust collection ports and clear out dusts & debris generated by operation of Dayton grinders.
Standards and Approvals
All Dayton grinders are OSHA compliant and are CSA certified, ensuring user safety, superior performance and environmental health.
- Ensure delivery of all the parts & tools using Dayton grinder's operating manual.
- Assemble the parts using the manual. Do not assemble if parts are missing or are broken. Order repair or replacement parts if necessary.
- Install the eyeshields on the Dayton grinder and place the unit on the assembled stand.
- Tighten the hardware using bolts, washers & nuts.
- Then, Dayton grinder should be connected to a grounded power supply using a 6 feet cord. The use of extension cords to supply power at farther distances may cause a reduction in voltage and loss of power.
- Wear proper apparel and keep the work area clean for safe & secure operation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Raptor Supplies offer other types of finishing tools?
Yes, Raptor Supplies offers various types of finishing tools other than bench grinders, such as pneumatic-blast-cabinets, deburring blades and bench-buffers. Pneumatic blast cabinets are used to remove rust & old paint stains and smoothen rough surfaces by removing imperfections on objects. Deburring tools like handheld deburring blades remove burrs from the raw edges of tools & holes of a product. The bench buffers are ideal for polishing metal tools & tubing and creating a smooth surface.
What does a Dayton grinder's grit size signify?
The grit of a Dayton grinder refers to the size of abrasive materials present on the grinder. A high grit size (120 etc.) denotes the presence of finer abrasives in the grinder wheel, leading to smoother surface finishes. Lower grit sizes (30, 36 etc.) represent coarser abrasives that scrape off many materials faster. Choose according to your applications for coarse or fine grinding, while keeping in view the material (workpiece) properties.
What personal protection equipment (PPEs) are required while using Dayton bench grinders?
Users should wear safety glasses / face shields / goggles for protecting their face or eyes. They should also have gloves, aprons, safety shoes and breathing & hearing protection to prevent flying particles, noise & accidental dropping of tools.
What materials should never be ground on a Dayton bench grinding wheel?
Users should never grind wood, plastic or other non metallic materials using a Dayton grinder. These bench grinders are not designed to grind / sand these materials.
What to do in case of a Dayton grinder failure?
Assuming that Dayton grinder is supplied with the correct power supply and is the correct choice for grinding the workpiece material, the first thing to check is the status of the wiring connections, fuse & capacitor. Users should also check & clean dirt or dust accumulated wheels and shaft causing heating of the motor. Motor bearings should also be lubricated regularly for smooth operation. Users should take care that they do not wedge any material between the wheel and the guard to prevent stopping of the motor. They should also check for wear & tear on the bench grinder parts. Users may also face vibrations and irregular grinding during the operation due to improper mounting of the wheels or the unit on stands.
How do I clean and maintain Dayton bench grinders?
- Ensure that the grinder is unplugged or the power source is disconnected.
- Remove dust and debris from the grinder's body, wheels and surrounding area.
- Check grinding wheels for damage or wear. Replace if necessary.
- Lubricate moving parts like wheel arbours and motor bearings as recommended.
- Adjust the wheel's tension and alignment per the manufacturer's instructions.
- Ensure that safety guards are in place and functioning correctly.
- Plug in the grinder, test it and listen for unusual sounds or vibrations.
- Periodically repeat these steps to maintain optimal performance and safety.
