Thank you for your question on the torque specifications on the grinding wheels.

There are not specific torque specifications on the stone grinding wheels.

It will depend on the style and type of wheel that you currently using on the grinder axle.

As long as you have both the inner and outer flange wheels in place on either side of the stone wheel then tighten the nut on the axle with enough torque to keep it from coming loose.

I generally put a wrench on both sides at the same and torque the nuts so the flange washer just begins to sink into the paper on the side of the wheels.

You will turn the nuts the opposite directions when tightening the wheel nuts both sides at the same time. It does not take much torque, just past snug.

Run the nut up snug on both wheels and then use a wrench and do about a quarter turn more.

You do not want to tighten them so tight that you crack the stones.

If your stones are out of true then use a cutter to true the wheels up as they spin to reduce vibrations.

I hope this will help.

A:

Get the outside diameter for the new grinding wheels from the grinder or the owners manual. Measure the diameter of the hole the arbor goes through on the wheels. The arbors on bench grinders are usually a standard size.

I am sending you a link to the page on Sears.com where you can order grinding wheels. You can also go to a hardware store or a builders supply store and buy grinding wheels. Get the 3/4 inch wide wheels, many of these grinding wheels are for a hand grinder.
