Eastwood Expander Wheel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expander wheel is a must have in my toolbox Expander wheel makes quick work of dirty, Rusty old parts and we'll make them look new again. It's size allows you to get into small areas yet large enough to make quick work of most work pieces. Another one of Eastwood's home runs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Expander Wheel Great Deal. I bought one of these expander wheels years ago and have used the heck out of it. It has been one of the best investments I made in a long time. I finally realized that I needed a second one which I now also have set up. The only catch with these wheels is you must use them on a 1740 rpm grinder which up here in Canada are not as easy to find. This wheel offers great value for the price. I am guessing I will be ordering a third one sometime soon. The belts take seconds to change. From what I can tell these wheels appear to be well made. My first one I bought ten years ago has been used here in my studio almost every day and still works like new. With the fine trizact belts you will amazed at how many times you need some quick fine polishing on small parts. Times when a coarse faster turning belt sander would be too much.

What size sanding belts do these take?

Asked by: Randy
These take belts that are 1-1/2" X 18-15/16. This is the same as belts for a 6 inch diameter wheel.

So this won't work on standard bench grinders?  All of my bench grinders run at 3400-3600 RPM, even many buffing motors turn at those RPMs.  I'd love to buy this, but not if I have to buy another motor just for this...  thanks Mark

Asked by: Blacksmith Mark
Anything above the 2400 RPM would damage the wheel.

This says it is designed to run at 2400 rpm, but buffers basically run at 1700 or 3400...anyone using this & what speed is this ACTUALLY be used at?

Asked by: KFrey
2400 RPM is the Max speed. It is perfectly fine to run this unit at that speed or less.
