    Hi everyone!!!! I'm making another knife grinder so I thought I would share some pictures of the build. My new lathe is really helping with the platen wheels, its a joy to work with. I'll be adding more pictures as I complete my new project.

    Enjoy
    Regards

    Wow, haven't been on this forum lately, so just saw this. That grinder is a thing of beauty. How does it run ? Would you happen to be interested in making some 1" wide wheels? I was thinking about making a 1" by 42" grinder along similar lines as what you've made.

    Thanks my grinders run awesome no complaints yet from my customers. I could make you 1 inch wheels but with all do respect I think you would be better off building yourself a 2 X 72 grinder you'll have the best of both worlds. Just split a belt if you need a 1 inch belt, also 2 X 72 would be more economical in the long run.

    Just my opinion
    Kind regards

    I get what you mean. I got Jose's Pheer Grinder last year, but right before he upgraded his design to to one more like what you are making. I like ththe clearance around your platen, and heavy duty construction on your grinder.

    I still have the Viel 1" by 42" grinder I got at Lee Valley tools, which is a little wobbly and the tracking could be improved. I was thinking about remaking it with a few tweaks, as I can just run out to Lee valley to pick up belts for it where's I have to order online for my 2" by 72" belts.

    How much are your grinders, by the way?
