DeWALT Grinder Repair – Replacing the Outer Flange (DeWALT Part # 611672-00)


The outer flange is one of two flanges that
secure the grinding wheels to your grinder. It has a five-eighths-inch threaded hole,
so it can be secured to the grinder’s spindle. One side has a seven-eights-inch hub for attaching
standard grinding wheels to the grinder. The other side is flat and it could be used
to secure thin cutting discs or diamond wheels. The hub on the locknut can wear over time,
causing the grinding wheel to wobble. Replacing the lock nut is a repair that you
can do yourself. I’m going to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. [music]
Do it yourself repairs like these are easier than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor drills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish, so doing it yourself means never having to do it alone. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the grinding wheel
from the grinder. I’ll depress the lock button and use the spanner
wrench to remove the nut. Now I can install the new lock nut. There are two sides to the lock nut. One side has a hub, the other is flat. If I’m installing a normal grinding wheel,
I’ll install the wheel on the inner flange and then use the side of the nut that also
has the flange. If I’m installing something thin like a cut-off
disc or this diamond wheel, I’ll install the wheel on the inner flange, and then use the
side of the nut that’s flush. That’s how simple it is to install the outer
flange on your grinder. [music]
