The TURBO Shaft fits most 4″ (100mm) and 4 1/2″ (115mm) angle grinders. However, when choosing an angle grinder to suit the blade, you should look for the following features:
The TURBO Shaft can be used on a variable speed, cord, or cordless grinder, as long as it runs at a speed of 9000 RPM or higher.
Possible cause: Teeth worn Solution: Rotate teeth to a new position.
Possible cause: Excessive buildup of residue on the outer edge of TURBO Shaft Solution: Remove teeth and then run the shaft on sanding paper, refer to this video for more information.
Possible cause: TURBO Shaft is not correctly aligned with the spindle of the grinder causing contact with the wood at a position where there is no tooth. Solution: Check that the shaft is fully tightened to the base of the grinder spindle. Do not use the base collar nut that is usually used to locate a grinding disc. Try on another grinder
Possible cause: Incorrect thread or adapter Solution: Check thread, locate the correct adapter In Europe, the shafts suit an M14 thread In North America, the shaft suits a 5/8 UMC x 11 thread In Australia, the shaft suits an M14
The TURBO Shaft, like all of the Arbortech products, should run smoothly and be easy to control. A lot of effort goes into making sure it is balanced and all the tolerances are correct for the application.
If it feels unbalanced or does not perform smoothly, it is an indication that something is wrong.
Possible Cause: TURBO Shaft not fitted correctly. Solution: Please see the fitting instructions section.
Possible cause: TURBO Shaft not correctly aligned with the spindle of the grinder causing impact contact with the teeth. Solution: Check that the shaft is fully tightened to the base of the grinder spindle. Do not use the base collar nut that is usually used to locate a grinding disc. Try on another grinder.
Possible cause: Build-up of resin Solution: Soak overnight insolvent.
