Had this project on the back burner for years. I finally have my 2x72 belt grinder up and running.

Runs fast and smooth it can really take off a lot of metal fast. kind of scary. :s_omg

The grinder frame is made from Aluminum Extrusion no welding , the grinder sets on a ½ steel plate. I turned 2 of the 4 wheels on the metal lathe. I had turned all 4 but 1 of the front wheels was off balance I broke the bearing pressing it in, didn't want to wait a month or more to get around to turning another so I purchased 2 new front wheels. The motor is a 1 hp Dayton, it had a 2.5 hp variable speed DC motor that worked for about 30 minutes until I exploded the control board.

It was a fun project.
