Atterton and Ellis Pilot repair

I have an old pilot cylinder grinder I use now and again
It needs a bit of a repair.
The boss that holds the grindstone needs a new steel key
that runs in the rotating shaft
I dont suppose anyone has ever repaired this or had it repaired
any advice would be greatly appreciated

Never used a pilot, but it is

Never used a pilot, but it is probably very similar to the one on a Dual, which I have used (extensively). I think you are referring to the 'tube' that the grindstone fits on to and you then screw a boss on to clamp the stone. The 'tube' has a key fitted inside, this fits into the slot along the rotating shaft across the grinder.

As far as I can remember, the 'key' was part of the tube and the official way of replacing the key was to replace the 'tube'.

If you cannot obtain a new component, you are either going to have try and repair it by welding a new key in (probably from above) or by finding someone who can do it for you.

Hi sorry for late reply but

Hi sorry for late reply but holidays got in the way

IĀ spoke to AttertonĀ and Ellis to see if any parts are available

but all they supply now are belts and stones

i was wondering if the tubes were the same size as the dual machine

other than that it looks like a bit of welding might be needed

Can't help there as no experience with the Atterton machines.
