    Default Started building a 2x72 belt grinder

    Came across jeremy Schmidt's belt grinder build on YouTube and loved it so we got ahold of his plans and a tempting to build our own using .500 hot rolled for the receivers and .250 for the brackets and tabs instead of .375 for everything

    I ran out of space on the first post for pictures we used a Pepsi can for shims in the hinge while welding and a .500 piece of all thread for alignment

    There has been a little progress. We re-cut the motor mount plate out of a single piece , tapped the holes and tacked the belt tracking hinge in place. We also cut small star pieces for the adjustment knob's and received the vfd that will control the 3hp 3ph motor still inbound.

    We cut a .500 piece of aluminum to mount the grinder to on the stand and mocked it up to see if the height is good.

    Seriously, building a Small Block Chevy type belt grinder and putting a small pee pee 3 hp motor on it? Really?
