changing the belt on premier wonder grinder
Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques
I'll dig them out, but I litterally just swapped the belt with a chain, and the pulleys with cogs, so it's no different in layout or sizes to the original belt system. However, you'll need to add an extra sprocket to tighten the chain. I didn't, and it wore down the teeth after a few months because the chain wasn't quite tight enough.
I swapped back to linked belts after that, which I still use now, even though they need to be replaced every couple of months or less. I've been building my own 20 litre capacity stone grinder for a while though now, so rather than improving the small ones, I've been focused on that.
Thank you for your help, I truly appreciate it. WOW, that is a project to build a stone grinder...can you build a few? We all need them.
OK, I ordered the sprockets and chain and am looking forward to experimenting. I am going to use this on the 2 liter machine that does have a tightening mechanism so I should be OK. Guess I need to order some ear plugs too .
Please do send along the photo when you find it and stay in touch.
