    Very nice work proorange.

    It looks to me like all chances of flexing or bending are not going to be an issue. I sure wish I had more room, but my current setup won't allow many more large tools.

    Get a little paint on it and it will look like one you bought.

    Making one for a friend could be ok if they buy all your supplies, and supply bbq, and last but not least, they could do all the cutting and fitting so you can weld it up and make it work.

    I get alot of friends wanting something built but they dont want to hang around and help. So for the ones that cant help, they of course pay for gas wire and steel. But they also get a nice little bill for my time. I dont get rich, I do help out a friend, and I make a little fun money.

    Once again very nice work. I would love to see it when it is all finished.

    Nice job, Thanks for finally providing some clarity to the tracking mechanism. Always liked the Unigrinder, but never could see from their site how they accomplished the tracking.

    Default Belt Grinder

    Very nice job.
    I have two of these in the shop that use the 2 x 72 belts. One is a Bader and the other is a shop built copy of the Bader using the Bader wheels and cone pulleys. The Bader is an industrial quality machine and the wheels are expensive but they are high quality parts and last. What I found was that this is one of those things that once you have one you wonder how you worked without it. The Bader with a 2 hp motor and 60 grit belt will hog out 1/4 thick stock without breaking a sweat and do that all day and quality 72 inch belts don't wear out fast. The Bader wheel options go from around one inch diameter up and are quick to interchange.
    Happy grinding!

    That's an awesome grinder. I especially like the belt tensioner spring retainer tubing cups, amongst all of the other greatness.

    Your pictures are bordering on p0rn

    Yes it's ok to use tickled and giggle in the same post. It's like "fine and dandy"
    They can be used separately or together but never in a biker bar.

    I like your sander. Good job. I have one similar to that I built. Suggestions:
    make a guard for the belt edge as the edge can go through flesh in a flash(ask me how I know) 13 stitches and $700 poorer after that. Also guard the open belt and pulley........they're are just waiting for a loose shirt tail to grab. Again, good work....................................Nick

    Thank You Monte for the suggestions. Another thing is some type of deflector coming off the rear drive wheel. When your really getting after some thicker material the sparks like to ride all the way around that thing and find it's way onto my head
