Build your own 2″ x 72″ belt grinder with a 2 hp motor and variable speed drive. The design will accept a variety of attachments such as a platen, different diameter contact wheels, or small wheels. The design allows for the grinder to rotate from vertical to horizontal. The base is also incorporated into the design so there is no need to take up space on your workbench. The class includes the flat platen attachment but we will show you how you can make the other attachments or you can purchase them from us if you’d like.
This will be a 3 day workshop where we build all the grinders together. You will have a chance to participate in building each part of the grinder but you may end up focusing on one aspect more than others. It is helpful if you know how to weld (we use MIG welders for this project) but it is not necessary and you may even have the opportunity to improve your skills with someone giving you a few pointers.
Class includes the all of the materials for the grinder and one platen attachment. The grinder when finished will require 220v single phase power.
