Speed of Star Diamond Model 6P-8 ?
I aquired a used Star Diamond Model 6P-8 cabbing machine at a local garage sale. The owner didn't know what it was and planned to use it for sharpening chisels,knives, etc. It does not have the drive motor and pulley. Searching the web I found it takes a 1/3 hp motor. I could find nothing on what speed the spindle and wheels should turn. I don't see any "Max Speed" rating on the grinding wheels.
Once I know what speed the spindle should turn, I can calculate the size of the drive pulley.
Can anyone help me?
