8" wheels are perfect for many tasks, from general shaping to knife handle sculpting and hollow grinding. Due to the larger diameter of the wheel they are also great for finishing and de-burring. The standard 19mm spigot included with the wheel allows for fast and efficient changing between your contact wheel and flat platen.

Contact wheels are also great for rapid stock removal as the diameter of the wheel opens the grain of the belt, exposing fresh grit that simply cannot be utilized in flat platen grinding.

Our billet aluminium hubs are precision CNC machined, then coated in a premium, abrasion-resistant urethane rubber – all completed in-house. The wheels are then ground concentric for a perfectly smooth and vibration free grinding experience.

The 8" contact wheel is compatible with all 84 Engineering 2x48" and 2x72" belt grinders / linishers using tooling arms included with your grinder.

"Precision Perfected: 8" Contact Wheel "Excellence from 84 Engineering"

Hey folks, just had to drop a quick shout-out about the 8" contact wheel I snagged for my Belt Grinder Shop Master 2x72. Let me tell you, it's a game-changer!

First off, the quality is top-notch. I mean, seriously, it's like they took a hunk of pure excellence and turned it into this contact wheel. The engineering behind it is just next level. I've used my fair share of wheels in the past, but this one takes the cake. The precision and balance are on point, making my grinding experience smoother than ever.

And let's talk about the service from Ewan. This guy knows his stuff. I had a few questions before making the purchase, and he was quick to respond and super helpful. It's not every day you find someone who's not only selling great products but also willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get exactly what you need.

The wheel itself has made a world of difference in my shop. Whether I'm working on a hefty metal project or just doing some fine-tuning, this bad boy handles it all like a champ. If you're on the fence about upgrading your contact wheel, take the plunge. You won't regret it.

Big thumbs up for the quality, engineering, and fantastic service. Keep on grinding, my friends! 🤘

Our contact wheels are now coated with 83 shore A polyurethane rubber to provide extreme wear resistance. Wheels are then ground perfectly flat to remove any surface variation

I have been using 84 Engineering belt grinders for many years, it's truly the one tool that gets the most use in my garage building motorcycles, It's one of those tools that you wonder how you ever did without! I highly recommend anyone working with steel have one! Dan - Cafe Race Garage -YouTube
