Dayton bench grinders are suitable for deburring, grinding, cleaning, sharpening and chamfering the alloy or carbon metal pieces. It is generally used in construction, maintenance & refurbishing applications.
Dayton bench grinder can grind the metal pieces & tools to a desired shape & angle by following these steps:
- After switching On the bench grinder, 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.
- 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.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Does Raptor Supplies offer other types of finishing tools?
A. 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 are also suitable for creating a smooth surface.
Q. What to do in case of Dayton bench grinder failure?
A. Assuming that the Dayton bench grinder is supplied with the correct power supply, believing that it 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 up of the motor. Motor bearings should be kept lubricated regularly for smooth operation. Users should take care that they do not wedge any material between wheel and 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 operation due to improper mounting of the wheels or the unit on stands.
Q. What does a Dayton grinder's grit size signify?
A. 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 materials faster. Choose according to your applications for coarse or fine grinding, while keeping in view the properties of the material (workpiece).
