Small Wheel Idler Arm
This idler arm gives you the ability to have a much tighter workpiece fit into a small wheel attachment by bringing the belt to a more acute angle. It is not necessary for running small wheel attachments on our 2x48 grinder but, but you do need it for a 2x72. These give you a lot more options in terms of where your small wheels will fit.
This product sadly only ships within the USA.

These wheels, due to the small bearing size, need to be run at a much slower speed than most other attachments, we recommend running them at a max speed of "20" on the KBAC VFD's that come with our grinders. If you're seeing sparks coming off the small wheels, they're being run too fast, and should be slowed down to avoid damaging the bearings.
