Expander Wheel Kit Includes 1 Band Of Each Grit is rated 4.1111 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tool My project was refinishing chrome and aluminum trim on my 66 Ranchero. Tried doing it by hand and developed "refinishing elbow". Turned to Eastwood for a better solution and purchased the Expander Wheel plus bands. This tool saved me hours of work. I use mine on an existing bench grinder. One of the beauties of this tool is the ease of changing the band when you want to go up or down to the next grit. With the motor off the band simply slips off and the next one slips on. Its that simple and that fast. The Eastwood Expander Wheel is one great tool for the professional or the DIY'er. With several hours of usage under my belt I can honestly recommend this tool. JP

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea and very useful I have used this system for everything from removing mill scale from steel before welding to sharpening tungsten tig electrodes to polishing hardened steel aircraft tools. The ease of changing grits is excellent (except for the Scotchbrite bands which are somewhat tight). The slight "give" of the rubber wheel makes getting a smooth surface much easier than with hard grinding wheels. I highly recommend them, but feel they are a bit overpriced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Non standard expander wheel dimensions makes sourcing belts outside of Eastwood very difficult The 1 1/2" x 19 inch circumference of this wheel makes this a 6" diameter expander wheel. That is a non standard wheel and you will be stuck buying all your belts from Eastwood. The industry standard wheels are 3.5" diameter and 5 inch diameter, both 3.5" thickness. 3M has some great info on belt progression for achieving various metal finishes on stainless, brass, aluminum etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expanding wheels are a great metal finishing aid My first expanding wheel. I used it to resurface some old BSA side covers. The wheel worked great. Only downside is the wheel is not a standard size so belts must be purchased at Eastwood. There are standardized wheel sizes available from other sources. As always Google is your friend, look for "expanding wheel".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expander Wheel Kit This kit is great! I used various grits to sand/polish aluminum SU dashpots for my MGB carburetors. This would be a tough job otherwise based on the shape of the parts. I would highly recommend.

Does this fit a 6in. Grider or 8in.?

Asked by: j and h
It is dependent on the arbor size of the tool. if the arbor size for the tool is 1/2 the expander wheel will fit. The expander wheel will fit up to an 1" arbor size diameter.
