Machine Rebuilding

Machines will be brought back to their original working condition and tolerances. Worn parts will be replaced as required.

Precision Grinding Service

Cylindrical or Belt grinding service to 110 RA to 1 RA and Tolerances  to .0002.


Complete re-manufacturing includes a comprehensive rebuild of all machine components and an upgrade in capabilities beyond the ability of the original machine. Various gauging systems such as Vollmer, FMT, probes, SBS electronic wheel balancing, and Barnes coolant systems are available. Other accessories such as belt grinders, grooving attachments, bed extensions for Farrel roll grinders, etc., are also available.


Older machines are fitted with new state of the art CNC controls, servos and spindle drives. Controls available are GE/Fanuc, Giddings & Lewis and Siemens. Field retrofits are also available for Herkules, Waldrich, Farrel and Voith grinders. Giddings & Lewis point-to-point and contouring machines can also be retrofitted in place.

Component Rebuilding and Replacement Parts

Rebuilding of spindle assemblies, valve bodies, transmissions, equalizer drives, work rests, journal rests, lubrication systems and other components. Replacement parts are available from our large inventory of serviceable used parts. New parts are available for Farrel, Mesta, Landis and some Cincinnati machines. Some components are available on an exchange basis to reduce downtime.

Recent Projects

We recently completed re-manufactures and installations of a Farrel Two wheeler for a customer in Indonesia and a single wheel Waldrich and Farrel roll grinders for a paper mill application in China. All of these machines were equipped with roll calipers and automatic shape compensation.

Check out the new and improved state of the art Abbott Machine Company precision grind and rebuild facility. Updated in 2015 to better further service future generations in the metal cutting and grinding industries.
