There's no grinder more simple than a swing arm.

Of the original Silvey or original Simington 450 you can even make new chain stops at home for they are made of 1/4" key stock.

Even the late model Silvey and Simington 451C are rather simple with most parts available at the hardware store except for the main castings and the motor.

The motor on the swing arms are so lightly loaded that they should last a life time with an occasional bearing change.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

For all of you Silvey RSII grinder owners I am producing a kit for the bearing slide.  I currently have 5 kits available.

The only thing that I dislike about Simington swing arm grinders is that the chain holder is made from high density plastic.  Time, heat & oil will eventually cause the chain holder to distort to the point that it will no longer accept the stated chain gauge.

However, the Silvey chain holder is made of aluminum and appear to be the same dimensions.  I put one on one of my Simington grinders and it works great.  I bought the Silvey chain holder from Madsens.

Thanks for the info Devon!

 Just ordered a aluminum Silvey chain holder today.
I would think that those Silvey parts will sell out soon too. So get while the getting is good!

I can make the chain holders.  So far I've been making them from steel so they should last longer.  Here is one on a RSII I just rebuilt for a friend.
