    Hi guys,

    Im looking to get a belt grinder and i dont know a lot about them.

    I would like the option to have the small wheel to work in finger choil and the option to flip it horizontally.

    The Vashti RIFT look amazing but with the motor/vfd + small wheel holder + tax/ship.. 3.8k, im sure its a amazing machine but i would like feedback before pressing enter lol..

    Thanks ! :)

    I Don’t have any experience with vashti, but they seem like awesome machines. I Recently got a nexus and have been super happy with it. Very solid, and no vibration whatsoever. With some modification it shouldn’t be too hard to get it to flip horizontally either.

    I also went with this WEG vfd for 1/3 the cost of a kbac and it’s been working great. Just need to isolate it from dust and wire up a separate remote.
    Dan has a guide here.http://dcknives.blogspot.com/p/vfds-part-5-remote-control.html?m=1

    Hello Bluebird.

    I own and operate Vashti Grinders. If you have any questions at all regarding the RIFT or any of the other models we design and manufacture please feel free to call me direct at 250-315-5305. We were evacuated on Thursday due to the wildfires and calling direct or emailing us at info@vashtigrinders.com is the fastest and most effective way to reach us. :)
