Larry Perna: Very nice job! Thanks for the video and the ideas.
Dale Richardson: Excellent piece of work! How did you acquire the large aluminum and the
wheel on the motor?
tellket: Very nice! He'll of sick monster look too.
bubby hardy: Hey man, that grinder is crazy awesome!!! I am currently building one from
a treadmill and love all the cool ideas!! Really enjoyed watching!!
klawndyke: ok now thats awesome
Herman van der Merwe: Brilliant!!!!! I love it!!! I'm looking into making knifes myself but the
equipment is too expensive at the moment for me. I also like recycling and
re purposing All kinds of stuff so this idea is just awesome!!! Thanks for
the upload Marcos!!
Raffaele Caré: I've seen someone use the skateboard wheels, but the truck tracking
adjuster is a new one! great idea. How did you have the center rotating
portion made? Was it laser cut or did you machine it yourself? Thanks for
Michael Flynn: Nice build Marcos
Michael Anway: Marcos this is brilliant! Especially so for using so many of the parts from
the treadmill,I see them on Craigslist all the time in working conditon for
free! Now I'm going to have to pick one up soon.
Alamodem: Best designed grinder i've seen. Do you have any place we can download
drawings or plans? Thanks for sharing.
tosee forall: Fantasic job, good to see material repurposed, keep up the good work.
Excellent design by the way.
russ meek: Cracking machine that marra ,fantastic use of recycled parts and a bit of
ingenuity, all the best with you knife making,I have just started messing
about myself, Russ
Jeff H.: Limited fabrication skills aside, that's a nice machine.
Scott H: Hey Marcos, That is one outstanding job you did with your belt sander.
Your abilities exceed the normal garage DIY"er. Nice work, Real nice. An
outstanding job and very functional. I like you re-purposing also, You
"brainiac" Speaking of re-purposing...... I'll give ya $30.00 for those
four wheels from your stroller hanging up from the ceiling in the corner of
just kidding..........nice work and get some more vids out.. Scott
David Spiller: Awesome job Marcos!
mars1952: Wow! That is a nice looking belt grinder! Nice work.
Paul Roberts: Awesome. Love the work. Good Job.
Sean Barrow: Great job! Where did you get the big wheel, and where will you get
different sizes ones?
You've inspired me, I'm going to build one myself!
Ronnie Kephart: Marcos, what is the center metal piece-where did it come from? Someone
asked but I haven't seen answer. Great idea. Did you ever make any more
Steve S: Where did you get the center piece of metal that the wheel and flat platen
in mounted on?
John Armstrong: Pretty darn good ingenuity. Looks like it will do the job quite well!!!
I'm impressed!!! Ya need to sell the plans. I'd buy them if available.
Steve Kurta: Super job. I'm planning for my 2x72. Love the truck adjuster and
skateboard wheels! The rotating wheel-to-platen feature is crazy smart.
Very motivating and great ideas. I'd like to see how your blade holding jig
functions, can you do a demonstration?
wambolt1212: things awesome bro!
Sam Parker: I have been researching retail belt grinders all day and this has more
features than those do. Many DIY rigs limit features for simplicity but it
seems like you have really improved standard retail units with this setup.
With the smaller wheels that you mentioned it should be even more
versatile. I would think you might have to replace the skate bearings with
more industrial ones fit for purpose but I assume you have that covered
already. Thanks for sharing.
Jose Figueroa: Wow! Good lookin machine looks store bought. Great job
hasdrubal121: Well done, nice job there.
Scott McCarroll: That's brilliant very clever
MochaTim: One hell of a job on the design and build. I would be interested in more
banjoman22: Awesome!!!! great work
James Johnson: amazing.
venun tox: O melhor projeto até agora,muito bom ...
Jose Figueroa: Thanks for responding Marco, I wasn't sure but makes sense guess I was
worried about start up on the motor as well. I'll keep a look out on
cragslist for a free treadmill thanks again. & Happy holidays.
JoeSmith: This is by far the nicest home made machine I have ever seen, If you can
figure out how to put such a thing into production, you are going to be
Frank Fomkin: Wow' fantastic work. I have been pondering a diy grinder and yours is
very inspirational. I recently broke down my old treadmill for scrap but
that was before i discovered knife making.
GnosisMan50: you might have to seal off the motor to prevent it from getting sanding
dale evans: Looks really nice I like it
Your tracking changes because your tracking truck rotates on its horizontal
axis. Another adjustment at 90 degrees might solve that.. I am in no way
being critical, great job
Abracahandra: Great job on the grinder my friend! I am in the process of making a grinder
Nathan Dean: Great idea
Jose Figueroa: In the process of making one myself. got my hands on an old aluminum jet
ski trailer lots of tubular alum, was wondering if a 15 amp dimmer switch
would work for the motor speed control ?
aurora52378: been hunting for a good design for my next grinder... this thing is
AWESOME!.. Nice work!..
Alamodem: That would be amazing. Even just the pivot part between the wheel and the
Nick Cattafi: Absolute genius innovations. How did you construct the main piece the
flips,with the large wheel on one side and the platen on the other. Where
did you find that piece. That is where my plan stall as i do not have a
welder I will need to repurpose something else. I agree with others,if you
sold plans,even simple one,I would buy them.
xXTepicwinTXx: Hey Marcos how did you design your flipable/modular contact wheel to flat
sander? Did you draw that out in auto cad and had a plasma table cut that
piece out? Or how did you do that?
danny burgess: that is THE COOLEST grinder I have EVER seen !! awesome job
slickdeville: freaking amazing....well done.
FunkinTwisted: I love to build things too and do a fair amount of DIY building. But I have
to say, this is outstanding. You have done a great job with an impressive
machine........ you should be proud!!!! Do more.......... post more.
wb93612: Awesome. Well done. Thanks for posting the video. That gives me some
Duck Face: "Damit es nicht schimmelt" seit wann schimmelt Metall bzw. Plastik? Kahain: that is insanely impressive. Cast Iron Boys Camp Oven Cooking: It's an apron Chris hellsingmongrel: Uhhh, these are not hard facts to know. I already knew this, and yes, I
have natural tits! Aoife Barniskis: I bought the Almay apple a day over the winter and I absolutely love it!
It's hydrating, smells as good as Emily says, is comfortable, is a little
sheer but shows up great on my highly pigmented lips. On me the color comes
off as a darker, cool, red, perfect for anyone who wants to try out red but
doesn't want to commit to a bold color. Also, there is no glitter or
shimmer, just gives lips a juicy look. I love the color and formula and
will buy it again when I run out. Iain Stevenson: Hi Graham
I have been exploring with my Lumix Z30 and pretty happy with it. Your
videos have definitely helped me optimise many of the features. However, I
am still having a diabolical time taking night sky shots, especially with a
bright moon. I have tried numerous settings in several modes but totally
unsuccessful. Any possibility of a brief guide on night shots with this
camera? S Max Reiter: Dear nerdishcouk,
Thank you for the vast and entertaining review! I enjoyed the example range
of view through all your lense's up to the 8mm. I'm looking for a
lense primarly to take video indoor on my mirrorless camera for my real
estate job. Then for fun scenes for my home videos. I'm still on a budget
and can't afford a nice wide angle lense. Do you think this will be a good
addition to my 22mm, 18-55mm canon eos m lenses.
