Photos of the Janita plano grinder for which I need the pulley sorted as in below post. If anyone has any more details of this machine I would be very pleased to get the details. Very heavy machine and the table is of massive construction. Machine is used for grinding cylinder heads / engine blocks or manifolds.

Now that looks a useful bit of kit !!

It doesn’t answer your question, but I would suggest this might be an ideal opportunity to convert it to Poly-V pulleys.

[quote] The new Janita Plano Grinder has been designed by C.L. Equipments, Ltd., Wolverhampton, to grind quickly and accurately any component from a small manifold to a large cylinder block. Its table size is 40 ins. by 20 ins.

The 10-in, cupped grinding wheel is tilled slightly so that only one edge meets the work. The back edge cannot touch the piece as it is passed over the table. The grinding wheel is raised by a micrometer control. The trade price of the machine, which incorporates a 2 h.p. 400-400-volt three-phase motor, is £121. [/quote]

Thanks for that. There is a mention in Caxtons Modern Motor Engineer vol.2. (Books around the 60's)

If it needed a new grinding wheel at some time I have no idea where you would get one. I would guess that you would have to send the complete wheel away to have it re-done.

I did pay more than the quoted list price above !!

There was one at the welding school at Northampton College where I got My arc and TIG NVQs in 2016-2020. Useful bit of kit for cleaning up an edge or face. If the wheel wears out, it is possible to get a new wheel built up on the old one.

I couldn't find this in my copy of this work; can you give a page number?

Your grinder, where the work is taken to the tool, reminds me of a handheld tool employing a similar principle whose name, however, I can't recall.
