    Default Centerless Through Feed - Both directions?

    Sounds silly to me, but has anyone heard of or experienced this being done, where a bar is being put through the grinder from either end, without changing and settings or rotation direction?

    You might be able to make that happen, not however with preferred settings. I suspect the results would be less than you'd hoped for.

    How is this done?
    Drive though to a point and the solenoid or mechanical kickback once open is drill making taper and straight shank but what and how a dual in/out feed over a long shaft?
    Centerless working more like a OD grinder and taking stock both ways? I'm confused.
    The concept does seem intriguing.

    Hi All:
    Doesn't the regulating wheel on a centerless have to be tilted a bit relative to the grinding wheel to actually make it throughfeed?
    So you'd have to be able to tilt the regulating wheel one way and then tilt it back the other way to make the workpiece traverse one way and then the other way.
    Or am I totally confused here...I've never done centerless so I don't know the process well at all.

    Cheers
