HEAT !!!!!!!! And sometimes, lots of it.

Keep the heat away from any babbit bearings, tho.

I had a large grinder that was stuck (8" IHC feed grinder). I'm thinking yours is a small table mounted grinder, but if it is one of the larger ones that has grease cups, take the grease cups off and clean them out. Refill them with fresh grease and re-install or replace them with grease fittings temporarily. Turn the caps down as hard as you can by hand to force grease into the bearings or until you see grease come out around the side of the bearings. If there is an arrow indicating which direction the flywheel or pulley is supposed to go, try to turn the wheel in the OPPOSITE direction so you won't be trying to grind up whatever may be inside. I have had good success with this method. I would hesitate using much heat as many had babbit bearings and you don't want to melt it out.

Hello
This is my first time to use Smokstak so I may need guidance and please feel free to correct me.
I have a little wonder gristmill grinder.
It was partially together when I got it.
Does anyone have any good pics of the eccentric bar where it goes under the steel burr discs?
What is the purpose for this bar? I assume you can attach a small bolster/sifter to it
Thanks in advance for your reply
