Hi, I just bought new grinding and polishing wheels for my Genie.
It seems to have a-lot of vibration. I have readjusted wheels, but no help.
Do the spacers need to be the same size on both sides of the unit?
thank you,
Jacki

Spacers are not the problem. You have out of balance wheels, which either need to be balanced or sent back to the manufacturer to be balanced. It's a little tricky and you need special equipment to balance them, so I'd send them back.

Michael,
Just curious, what is the tricky way?

It's not something that you can do yourself and I should have probably said "touchy" rather than tricky. You need to be able to add or remove weights from the rim of the grinding wheel in the correct areas to balance the wheel, (do it wrong and you can have BIG problems). The only thing that you can do is to remove the wheels and run the machine without the wheels to make sure that the machine is well balanced by itself. Then add one wheel back on to the machine at a time until you find the one which is causing the problem. Send that one back and have the factory fix or replace it.

I am so curious- what do you think is the chance of getting an out of balance wheel? How much different is the QC with Galaxy compared to say, Sachi or Perfection or Graves? And what about cutting performance of the same brands- any opinions? Let's say we are just talking about electroplated diamond wheels.
