Notes on operation
The recommended air pressure for operating the compressed-air
grinder is 6 bars. An air pressure greater than 8 bars may result in
damage to the compressed-air grinder.
The spindle must be treated particularly carefully when immobile.
Under no circumstances must the spindle be knocked, since the
high precision bearings which are important for function will be
damaged. Impact stress with the spindle in the resting state will result in lasting deformation of the bearing races.
Pay attention to the permissible cutting speeds and the tool manufacturer’s guidelines before using the tools.
Check that the tool is firmly seated and safely tighten.
Pay attention to even stock removal when milling. It is essential to
avoid a chattering method of work.
Materials containing asbestos must not be processed.
Check the maintenance unit regularly. If condensation water and dirt are
present, drain the condensation water and clean the filter (refer to section
on Care/Maintenance).
Wear protective goggles, protective gloves and hearing protection!
Pay attention to proper handling of the device. Do not exert any pressure
on the tools. The tools should only be guided over the surfaces. Correct
clamping of the tools is indispensable.

Control / operation
Connecting the compressed-air grinder
1. Connect the air supply line of the pneumatic compressed-air grinder
to the maintenance unit.
In order to ensure optimum lubrication and the lowest loss of pressure,
it is preferable not to use any line extensions.
With a line length exceeding 2 m, continuous lubrication of the hand
grinder is not guaranteed, since the oil already deposits itself inside the
2. Set a pressure of 6 bars on the maintenance unit.
The compressed-air grinder is now ready for operation. The oiler should
be set to the smallest possible dispensing quantity.
3. Insert the tool in the collet and tighten with the chuck keys and locking
pin supplied.
4. Valve operation: the machine can be switched on and off using a
slide valve.
Tool receptacles
The compressed-air grinder is only intended for manual use.
The tool receptacle is designed such that tools with a shaft Ø up to
3 mm can be received by the collets.
Tool change
Use the chuck keys to loosen the collet. Do not use any tools with greater
shaft diameters (max. Ø 3 mm) and insert the tools according to their dimensions. Place the tools in the desired position, tighten the collect and
check correct tool locking.
See the current JOKE® catalogue for usable, permissible tools.

See the current JOKE® catalogue for further accessories and the installation package.
Mechanism of action of the oil mister
The micro oil mister guarantees an even, rapid and precisely dispensable
lubrication of the hand grinder.
The oil mister is adjusted to approx. 2-3 drops per minute. Only a fraction of
the falling drops are misted and partly flow back into the reservoir.
Owing to the special air supply, it is possible to reduce the size of the oil
particles. The latter can be transported over long distances as micromist in
the air flow. They are hardly deposited. All surfaces with which they come
into contact are intensively and very uniformly wetted. An even, stable oil
film forms immediately at the bearing sites, the thickness of which can be
rapidly and precisely adjusted.
Setting up and connecting the maintenance unit
1. Check on the maintenance unit whether
- the condensation-water bleed screw is closed; closing is performed
by turning clockwise.
- the pressure controller screw is open; opening is performed by turning
2. Fill the oil container up to the mark with JOKE® high performance lubricant X 73012.
The oil level must not rise higher than the baffle plate of the micro oiler.
See the current JOKE® catalogue for the order no. for the lubricant in various container sizes.
3. Connect the line of the external air supply to the maintenance unit.
4. Take care that the air flows through the housing in the direction indicated by the arrow.
