Recent build, used for all kinds of work but as you can see from the jig mainly knife making. No need to say my welding is awful I am well aware, most of it is tacked together using a crappy Chinese gasless welder which I can only adjust wire feed speed/current. Not confident in my ability to build everything to tight tolerances I made everything adjustable, motor position left/right and angle, pulley/countershaft position forward/back and angle, tracking wheel hinge left-right, platen in-out etc etc. It’s not perfect but I have got it to run straight and true and I’ve been able to make some decent looking blades with it and it is a strong powerful grinder, powered by a 3hp single phase motor.
PS temporary workshop (conservatory) as our 12mx3m brick workshop is under slow construction.
