Test Results

Hello Gerd,

I received the work table on Wednesday and I installed it last night. Fit is perfect, and you could probably sell it without the hardware if you wanted to save a few penny's. However, it never hurts to have extra hardware so it might be best to just include it in case someone has grindings in the screw heads.
In my opinion I would use one self-locking nut (with nylon insert) instead of the current jam nut design. Its no big deal either way but it would be easier to install one self-locking nut at the factory and in the field vs wrenching two nuts together.

I sharpened a few blades last night and I had complete control over the sharpening process. I didn't feel like I had to hold the blade in 2 different positions. The edge was better than anything I have been able to produce in the past!!!. Its wonderful!

The only problem was that I noticed some vibration which I didn't notice before. If this vibration is due to the longer platform it must be that the longer length enhances vibration which is already present. I can live with the vibration, but I might try to find a way and solve it. I can switch back to the old platform to see if it goes away, and if it does then I will know for sure that its due to the longer platform. If it is the new platform I can put a piece of rubber near the end of the longer platform to see if it takes the vibration away. Have you noticed any extra vibration?

It is enough vibration to make the blade vibrate off the platform in a few second if you were not holding it. Is that normal?

I will keep you updated.

Thanks
Jim

Hello Jimbo,

Thank you for the info!!

The matter of the hardware is for this reason:

Nylock nuts are MEANT to be ONE TIME USE, and since this is a replacable/removable part a nylock would be the wrong hardware choice.

While we do usually give new hardware with the replacment worktables - in a standard MAG-9000 there are 2 work tables stacked, so when people go to use the onboard replacement they would have to take off the nylock nuts, and put them back on after the switch. This is why we use the 2 jam nuts.

The matter of vibration is due to your wheel being slightly out of round. This is what causes the vibration, the longer work table may only make it more noticable. The out of round condition is caused most often by uneven grinding motion. You can dress or true your wheel by very solidly grinding against it with an old blade in a very smooth motion. Try to get a very even stream of sparks when you go back as well as fourth. Oh, and when doing this use an old blade, and sharpen the square part, not the edge so you are grinding on a flat/new surface. When dressing the wheel approach the wheel at the same angle you approach when sharpening.

Thank you,

Larger Table for Mag 8000

I purchased a Mag 8000 from you last spring and love it. I have the same problem and need a larger work table for it. What would be the odds of you making a larger work table for the 8000?
Thanks,
Charles

Hello,

We can of course review the possiblity, as we did with the MAG-9000, but with the MAG-8000 it may be more difficult because of the small mounting area of the plastic.

I will have our engineers review the possiblities.

Thank you, and Happy New Year to All!!!
