    davinci,

    He'll be hard pressed to build a tilt mechanism that's better than that found on the Grizzly machine I mentioned.

    Check out that item on the Grizzly site. Both tables tilt and LOCK firmly in place at any angle.

    That Grizzly, with a 60 gr belt is a "metal eatin beast".

    Also has a pretty good dust collection system built in.


    A good belt sander can be great for tweaking a 45 deg angle on a frame. Ever tried taking off 1/16" with a bandsaw/chop saw/dry cut saw? Easy on a belt sander properly set up with a mitre gauge. Need a 46deg angle? No problem.

    I've heard a lot of good feedback on Grizzly tools. I have a whole host of woodworking tools as well as metal working tools. The woodworking guys I talk to like theirs as well. I might have to give them a try.

    My goal is to tilt the table Hopefully I can build a better mouse trap This sander was more work than I first thought. Hope to get it done soon "Real soon"!!! Thanks everbody Vernon

    The disc table is 6 x 10, the belt side is 6x10 they both have a dovetail slot in them for the miter gauge and they both tilt.. Like previously posted make it whatever your needs require..

    What is that machined slot for? securing grinding jigs? I have seen some setups like that for knifemaking. The jigs are used to keep angles even and such things.

    What do you plan on doing with that grinder? Such a wide belt is definitely not for knifemaking!

    Usually the milled slot is used to accommodate a miter gauge such as you would find or use on a table saw. Basically for making accurate angles.
