magnetic chuck from the surface grinder.
Wear heavy-duty leather boots for foot and
toe protection, and keep hands and fingers
away from all pinch points. Ignoring this
warning can lead to crushing injuries.
Magnetic Chuck Safety
A
1.
STRONG MAGNETIC FIELD: A magnetic
chuck generates a powerful magnetic field.
Keep all objects sensitive to magnetic fields
(watches, cellular phones, magnetic cards,
etc.) away from the magnetic chuck to prevent damaging them.
2.
PINCHING/CRUSHING INJURY: A magnetic
chuck generates significant clamping power.
When a magnetic object is moved near a
chuck that is turned ON, it will be attracted.
Any body parts caught between the object
and chuck will be pinched or crushed by the
magnetic force. Turn magnetic chuck OFF
any time it is not in operation.
3.
WORKPIECE EJECTION: The workpiece
could be ejected during operation, causing it
to hit the operator with deadly force. Never
stand directly behind the workpiece (in the
direction of spark travel).

MAGNETIC FORCE VARIATION: Clamping
force generated varies greatly depending on
the material, thickness, flatness, and cleanliness of the workpiece. A workpiece that does
not clamp securely may be ejected from
the chuck during use and thrown into the
operator or bystanders. ALWAYS check for
adequate clamping force before beginning an
operation.
SUDDEN WORKPIECE MOVEMENT: When
the magnetic force is released, workpieces
may shift or fall unexpectedly and could result
in crushing injuries or personal injury. Fully
support any clamped workpieces before turning the magnetic chuck OFF.
PROPER MOUNTING: If magnetic chuck
shifts during use, chuck and workpiece could
be ejected from machine and thrown into
operator or bystanders, resulting in impact
or crushing injuries. Make sure the magnetic
chuck is properly secured to grinding table
before operation.
CHUCK STOPS: If the workpiece is not resting against the stops during operations, it may
shift and could be ejected from the machine
and thrown into the operator or bystanders,
resulting in impact or crushing injuries. Make
sure the workpiece rests against the rear and
side stops during operation. If necessary, use
spacers between the stops and workpiece.
SURFACE GRINDER SAFETY: Failure to
follow surface grinder safety could result in
serious personal injury or even death. Follow
all safety guidelines provided by your surface
grinder manufacturer.
RELEASING CLAMPING FORCE: Turning
the magnetic chuck OFF during operation
will release the workpiece, which may cause
the workpiece to shift and be thrown into the
operator or bystanders. Never turn the chuck
selector OFF during grinding operation.
10. FERROUS METALS: This magnetic chuck
will only work on metals containing iron. Nonferrous metals will be ejected from grinder
during use and could be thrown into operator
or bystanders, resulting in impact or crushing
injuries. DO NOT expect the chuck to hold
aluminum or other non-ferrous metals.

Grinder Preparation
Before placing your magnetic chuck onto your
surface grinder table, you must ensure that your
grinder table is flat. Variations in table flatness can
occur as a result of shipping and storage, manufacturer's production tolerances, overheating during use, previously mounted magnetic chucks, or
for various other reasons.
To prepare the grinder table for chuck mounting,
very lightly grind, or "dust", the entire table surface
to make sure it is perfectly flat.
Chuck Preparation
Before putting your new magnetic chuck to use,
there are a few steps you must take to ensure
optimal performance and accuracy from your
grinding operation.
Removing Surface Imperfections
If damage was done to the crate during shipping,
the bottom surface may have scratches or dings.
If any imperfections are detected, perform the following steps.
To remove surface imperfections:
1.
Very carefully clean grinder table and top surface of magnetic chuck to remove any foreign
material.
2.
Use a polishing stone to remove any surface
imperfections on machine table and top surface of magnetic chuck. Rough table finish
may reduce holding power during the following steps.
3.
Carefully place magnetic chuck upside-down
onto table surface.
4.
Engage magnet by turning chuck selector to
the ON position to lock it to the table.
5.
Use surface grinder to grind bottom surface
flat and remove any imperfections. Be careful
to remove only as much material as necessary, and DO NOT attempt to remove more
than 0.0001" per pass.
T1227/28/29 Magnetic Chuck (Mfd. Since 09/17)
Surface Flatness
5.
The surfaces of your magnetic chuck were ground
flat during production. However, it's a good idea to
double-check that the chuck is still flat after shipping and handling.
To test for flatness:
1.
Make sure magnetic chuck is turned OFF,
then carefully place it upside-down on a clean
work surface.
2.
Use a precision straightedge to check for flatness along length, width, and diagonals, as
shown in Figure 2.
Straightedge
After allowing magnetic chuck to sit overnight, perform Steps 1–3 again. Repeat as
necessary until there is no longer any trace
of warping.
If, after several attempts, magnetic chuck is still
warped, you must correct warping by grinding.
If you attempt to correct for warping by grinding
away high points, you will create variations in
overall thickness of chuck across its length and
width. These variations must be corrected by
grinding portions of the other side of the chuck to
compensate.
For example, if your chuck bows upwards at
each end and you correct this by slightly grinding away the surface at each end, your chuck will
be left thicker in the middle. You will have to flip
the chuck, then grind away the middle portion to
restore flatness.
Matching Chuck to Table
To ensure that the top surface of your new chuck
stays equidistant from the grinding wheel during
table travel, you must grind the surface of your
magnetic chuck to match your table.
= Additional Straightedge Positions
Figure 2. Testing surface flatness.
3.
Carefully flip magnetic chuck over, then perform the same check on top surface of chuck.
— If no space is detected between magnetic chuck surfaces and the straightedge, proceed to Removing Surface
Imperfections.
— If any space is detected between the bottom surface and the straightedge at any
point, the chuck has warped slightly during
shipping. Perform Step 4 to correct
warpage.
4.
Clean, then use a polishing stone on bottom
surface of chuck and table surface of your
surface grinder to remove any foreign material and surface imperfections. Then carefully place magnetic chuck right-side up onto
grinder table in the position you plan to mount
it. Allow it to sit overnight. During this time,
any warping will be corrected as the chuck
becomes matched to table.
T1227/28/29 Magnetic Chuck (Mfd. Since 09/17)
To match your chuck to your table:
1.
Very carefully clean grinder table and bottom
surface of magnetic chuck. Place magnetic
chuck on table, positioning it as desired, then
clamp it with the included holddowns.
2.
Grind entire surface of magnetic chuck, making sure chuck stays as cool as possible during this process to avoid damaging magnets
and keep it from warping. DO NOT attempt to
remove more than 0.0001 inch per pass.
Avoid overheating chuck during grinding.
Too much heat during grinding will bow
chuck, causing middle portion to be
ground more than ends. Once chuck cools
again, it will flatten, leaving center area
thinner than the edges. Excessive heat
will damage magnets and reduce holding
power. DO NOT attempt to remove more
than 0.0001" per pass.

Workpiece
Clamping Workpiece
Before any operation can be safely performed,
the workpiece must be properly positioned and
clamped on the chuck. While the magnetic field
is effective at keeping the workpiece from lifting
off the table during use, it may not be sufficient
to keep the workpiece from sliding. To keep the
workpiece from sliding, use the work stop.
Workpiece
To use work stops:
1.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2.
Turn ON/OFF selector to OFF.
3.
Loosen cap screws securing work stops, lift
work stop high enough so it is above surface
of magnetic chuck, but below workpiece surface, as shown in Figure 4, then re-tighten
cap
screws.

4.
Position workpiece so it is near center of
chuck, as shown in Figure 4.
5.
Place a spacer strip of steel bar (it must
be thinner than workpiece) as necessary
Spacer
between workpiece and work stop to provide
bracing against slippage.
Note: Spacer strip also aids in proper workpiece alignments to magnetic chuck and
grinder.

Using Auxiliary Magnetic Blocks
3.
If your workpiece cannot be placed flat on the
chuck due to warping, an irregular shape, or any
other reason, you must use auxiliary magnetic
blocks to support the workpiece. To ensure that
the workpiece is held parallel to the chuck, you
may need to grind the auxiliary magnetic blocks
before placing your workpiece in them.
Clean away any metal chips or swarf from
around workpiece and magnetic chuck with
a stiff-bristled brush and remove workpiece
from chuck.
Note: Workpiece may seem stuck to chuck
due to residual magnetism in workpiece or
a vacuum between workpiece and chuck.
If this is the case, a blast of air from an air
nozzle can be used to release the vacuum.
Alternately, you can slide the workpiece off
the side of the chuck to remove it. Using this
method, however, may result in scratches to
the chuck surface.
Figure 6 shows an example of how magnetic
V-blocks can be used to mount a workpiece with
an irregular bottom surface.

sufficient clamping force and may result in
workpiece being thrown from grinder and
into operator or bystanders during use.
Removing Workpiece
•
•
Check/correct loose clamping bolts.
Use a vacuum, rag, or brush to clean the
chuck after use. Never use air pressure to
clean metal chips/swarf away from a chuck.
Apply rust preventative to magnetic chuck
after each use to prevent rust.
Avoid leaving a workpiece on the magnetic
chuck when not in use.
Inspect for damage to the surface of magnetic chuck that may compromise its flatness.
Regrind as necessary.
Stone chuck surface before use.
Monthly:
•
Grind top of magnetic chuck to reduce effects
of warping.
Semi-annually/Annually:
•
Remove chuck, re-grind table, re-install
chuck, then re-grind chuck surface.
After the grinding operation, remove your workpiece from the magnetic chuck.
To remove a workpiece from chuck:
1.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2.
Turn ON/OFF selector to OFF position.
