    I was thinking more of repositioning the guards so that I am woking on the back side of the wheel, you know, turn the whole thing around.

    If you can, or just take the guard off, can't see any reason why you can't work off the back of it! Make sure you wear a face shield!

    Why not just install a DPDT switch on the primary windings and get the motor to spin backwards.......

    I'm going to rig up the above mentioned adapter to my belt grinder and try that. This machine has a very effective dust collection system.





    I installed this "Whole Shop" dust collection system. Noisy vacuum system is located in a shed outside along with the compressor.

    This was all made from scrap I had in the shop and a cheap HF 6" grinder.

    Works great.

    Looks good. The only thing I had to make was the tungsten holder. Took no time at all. I was going to do it like yours but I started grinding on the side of the wheel and in order to get all the angles figured out, this just was easier.
    What I like about yours is once you figure your grind angle out, the jig need not be changed. I stopped grinding on the edge because it was grooving my wheel and being a 6" wheel, it grinds with a radius which I don't like. I really need to get a better wheel. I hate to part with a $100 for a diamond. After I have more experience with grinding, I'll probably make my own sharpener with
    settable angles in degrees.

    I believe you meant "pin" vise?

    That looks like a nice device. Where did you get it?
