A centreless grinding machine for finishing the wheelseats and journals of rolling stock axles is described. The machine is capable of dealing with both plain and roller-bearing type axles. Extreme accuracy both diametrically and in profile is guaranteed by this method, which is effected with built-up grinding wheels located on a patent spindle of special design having one fixed, and one axially adjustable grinding wheel. The form of the grinding wheels on the spindle is rigidly maintained by means of a special turning device.
