2x72 belt grinder build

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

2x72 belt grinder build

Postby dzljon » Thu Dec 28, 2017 10:16 am

We came across jeremy Schmidt's belt grinder build on YouTube and loved it so we are attempting to build our own. This is what we have so far. Started by machining .500 flat bar to fit properly then drill and tap to bolt it together instead of welding. Then we went to work drawing and cutting all the bracket and tabs, next is to fit it all up and tack it together ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Looking good. I'm following the same plans, and i envy your CNC. I'm thinking to find someone local who can CNC-cut those parts for me.

Looks like it's going to be a real nice belt grinder! I wanted to build my own, but ended up purchasing a Reeder Products grinder with the platen attachment instead. I bought the motor and VDF controller (KBAC 27) separate and saved some money.
If you haven't used one, you'll really enjoy it!

Hey, Dzljon-
Your post over at WW said you're selling kits. I'd like to buy one. Please post or PM payment info.

Thanks!
