I have a Souix valve grinding machine and need some new stones for both the valves and seats, does anyone have a source? Thanks
I get mine on eBay just have to make sure you get the right thread size.
Try >Beam Equipment & Supplies<. You can google that or find them on ebay, their user name is "dbensavage"
Do you have a stone dresser? Sometimes all that is need is to re-dress the stones. Or are they just plain worn out? I was going to suggest ebay also.
All I have seem to be coarse stones, I need to get some fine for finish.
Ah! In the mean time you could cut'em and lap'em.
Try Goodson for both the valve and seat stones. Here is their link:
I have had good luck with their stones.
Thanks for all the information, Goodson seems to have a great selection.
Rick, while Goodson definitely has the goods (--and sometimes I am forced to buy from them) I actually prefer to order from Cylinder Head Supply ( http://www.cylinderheadsupply.com/ ) simply because of their lower prices.
I also need to look at what I have to see if it will fit your machine as I "inherited" a cabinet full of new stones when I bought a bunch of stuff at a machine shop auction in northern VA several years ago. Send me what the dimensions of the threads on your stone holder on Facebook and I will see what stock I have that I can give you.
Brent, thanks I will look to be sure.
I have a bunch of souix pieces that I got on a package deal that I don't need as I use kwik way. I would give the souix stuff away if I knew where I put it.
