Bench cutter/sander question


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to find a bench cutter and sanding belt combo. I know I can easily find one on Golfworks but, I was doing some research mainly for cost purposes. I noticed that most setups only come as a grinder/sanding belt combo. My question is, on these setups, can the grinding wheel be replaced with a cutting wheel?

Normally you can find a cut off wheel with the same diameter hole as the grinding wheel. You just might have to add some spacers as the cut off wheel is much thinner than the grinding wheel.

I can be done you need to know the size of the arbor as Tom said above and how the grinder or future cutting wheel is secured to the shaft. 

I can be free wheeling or it wont cut.  In the past I had an arbor extension that held the cutting wheel. I put the wheel a bit further from the body of the unit which helped me. 

Driver - 44.5" 5.0 flex 10.5 deg Graphite Design XC 6S GP MCC4+ 1 deg closed

Irons - 5-pw, GW stnd length 5.0 flex same grip 1 deg flat. Type low medium offset cavity back, no diggers

Wedges - 56 and 60 tour grind wedge spinner and mcc4+ grip 2 flat 10 and 8 in bounce

Putter - Makefield VS LH

Ball - truvis

Carried in a Sun Mountain C-130 USA bag - BE PROUD.

HC - LH but 85 is a good number, playing in Ohio.

I've always felt safer, for some reason, using an inexpensive cutoff or "chop" saw that has a base on which I can rest the shaft I'm cutting rather than doing it as a freehand on the wheel process.

If I was a novice at club repair and building, that is probably something that I would look into. I would consider myself intermediate/advanced in club repair and building. 

Most setups, wheel and belt combos aren't  "freehand" per se. In the setups that I have seen and used with a cutting wheel on one side and a belt on the other, the cutting wheel has a small platform that you put the shaft on as you push towards the wheel. 

 

Nonetheless, I appreciate all the advice!

I got a cheap cut off saw from Harbor Freight which works great for me for steel and graphite.   I also have a upright belt sander I can prep tips on but prefer to do it by hand at least on graphite as  I don't do a ton of graphite anyways.  This particular belt sander doesn't turn slow enough for ferrules so I do them by hand.
