I suspect you'll struggle - the bearings etc. are meant to take the size wheel the machine's designed for. If it was designed for a larger wheel, it would probably be sold with a larger wheel on it.

Phil, if he was talking about a larger diameter wheel, I'd agree with you totally, but it's not uncommon to fit 1" wheels in place of 3/4", providing there's enough clearance between the guard and the wheel faces.

Peter Hemsley at the Toolpost sells O'Donell "Ruby" wheels with depressed centres to enable this to be done without messsing about with the shaft and I'm sure that others do similar. :wink:
