POWER CONNECTIONS

A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected with a time delay fuse. NOTE: Time delay fuses should be marked "D" in Canada and "T" in the US. If an extension cord is used, use only3-wireextension cords which have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the machine to the power line, make sure the switch (s) is in the "OFF" position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the machine.

Do not expose the machine to rain or operate the machine in damp locations.

MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS

Your machine is wired for 120 V., 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source, make sure the switch is in the "OFF" position.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This machine must be grounded while in use to protect the operator from electric shock.

1.All grounded, cord-connectedmachines:

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper connection of the equipment-groundingconductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is theequipment-groundingconductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipmentgrounding conductor to a live terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.

Use only 3-wireextension cords that have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching3-conductorreceptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.

Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

2.Grounded, cord-connectedmachines intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150 volts:

If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect this plug to a matching 2-conductorreceptacle as shown in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. Thegreen-coloredrigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal screw.

NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.

In all cases, make certain that the receptacle in question is properly grounded. If you are not sure, have a qualified electrician check the receptacle.

ASSEMBLY TIME ESTIMATE

Assembly for this machine takes approximately 30 minutes.

TOOL RESTS

Disconnect machine from power source!

1.Assemble the v-groovedtool rest (A) Fig. 2, to the inside of the right wheel guard using two 3/4" flat washers (C), and two5/16-18x 5/8" hex head screws (B).

2.Assemble the remaining flat surfaced tool rest (D) Fig. 3, to the inside of the left wheel guard in the same manner using two 3/4" flat washers (C), and two 5/16-18x 1/2" hex head screws (E).

3.Each tool rest is adjustable so that the edge (F) Fig. 3, of the tool rest can be positioned as close to the grinding wheel (G) as possible giving maximum support to the piece that is being ground. A distance of 1/8" (3.2 mm) or less between the grinding wheel

(G) and the edge (F) of the tool rest should always be maintained. As the grinding wheel wears down to a smaller diameter, re-adjustthe tool rest closer to the wheel. The tool rest should be adjusted so it is set a little below the center of the wheel. This is the most practical and safest position for general work. Freehand grinding without the use of the tool rest should always be done on the lower quarter of the wheel.

SPARK GUARDS

Disconnect machine from power source!

Mount the spark guard (A) Fig. 4 to the side of each wheel guard, using the 1/4-20x 1/4" hex head screw (B) and 1/4" flat washer (C).

NOTE: Place the tab (D) Fig. 4 (on the side of the spark guard) (A) in the slot (E), before attaching the spark guard (A) to the grinder.

Adjust the spark guard (A) as close as possible to the grinding wheel to prevent sparks from striking your hand. As the wheels wear down, adjust the spark guard (A) accordingly.

GRINDING WHEELS

 

 

 

 

The use of accessories and

 

 

 

 

Fig. 10

attachments not recommended by Delta may result

 

in risk of injuries. Grinding wheels used with this grinder should be rated for 3600 RPM or higher and

be 6" (152 mm) in diameter with a 1/2" (12.7 mm) arbor hole.

Two aluminum oxide grinding wheels are supplied with your grinder; one 36 grit and one 60 grit. For best grinding results, and to maintain good balance, always keep the wheels properly dressed. Do not force the work against a cold wheel. The grinding wheel should always be run at idle speed for one full minute before applying work. It is recommended that only balanced wheels be used with your grinder. The use of balanced wheels adds years to the life of the bearings on the grinder and by eliminating the most common source of vibration, more accurate work is accomplished.

ALWAYS maintain a distance of 1/8" (3.2 mm) or less between the grinding wheel and the tool rest. Adjust the tool rests and spark guards as the grinding wheels decrease in size with use.

DRESSING A GRINDING WHEEL

When dressing a grinding wheel use a suitable silicon (A) carbide stick type dresser (B), as shown in Fig. 11. Move the dresser forward on the tool rest (D) until it touches the high point on the face of the wheel (C). Dress the wheel by moving the dresser back and forth. Repeat this operation until the face of the grinding wheel is clean and the corners of the wheels are square.

ALWAYS maintain a distance of 1/8" or less between the grinding wheel and the tool rest. Adjust the tool rests and spark guards as the grinding wheels decrease in size with use.
