tosee forall: Fantasic job, good to see material repurposed, keep up the good work.
Excellent design by the way.
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
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
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!
mars1952: Wow! That is a nice looking belt grinder! Nice work.
Steve S: Where did you get the center piece of metal that the wheel and flat platen
in mounted on?
James Johnson: amazing.
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.
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: 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 ?
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?
banjoman22: Awesome!!!! great work
wb93612: Awesome. Well done. Thanks for posting the video. That gives me some
venun tox: O melhor projeto até agora,muito bom ...
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.
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.
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.
danny burgess: that is THE COOLEST grinder I have EVER seen !! awesome job
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?
Hashirama Senju: Nice job brother!
David Spiller: Awesome job Marcos!
slickdeville: freaking amazing....well done.
Larry Cederholm: hay marcos would like a knife made are you up for it
100nortonfan: Quite clever, Marcos. Thanks for the ideas, I am planning on building one
in the near future and you have provided some great tips. Cheers!
mars1952: What size skate board wheels did you use?
rwashman: Nicely done! Very well thought out.
Paul Roberts: Awesome. Love the work. Good Job.
Gary Brown: I really enjoyed the video. I am just now building a shop and I want a
grinder and was looking to weld or make one myself too but cost of the
motor and all the idler, drive and tracking wheels were high. As well as
the 10" wheel or other sizes.
Did you only have to buy the Drive pulley and big grinding wheels? I will
keep my eye out on a cheap treadmill that still has the motor.
Thanks for sharing.
Ribeye Rare: Brilliant
sharp x: great job, thanks for sharing.
Marc Conroy: Fantastic work man, well done!
Scott McCarroll: That's brilliant very clever
ChiefDork: good job, great idea but aren't ya missing something? like may be the
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.
Esmail Said: surgcial belt grinder
Forrest Simpson: That is amazing, great job!
wambolt1212: things awesome bro!
MochaTim: One hell of a job on the design and build. I would be interested in more
hasdrubal121: Well done, nice job there.
frank regalado: awesome machine and great imagination
maybe get a manufacturer interested
what does the piece you flip with the three wheels come from??
Petros Makris: It looks like too much! but why not :)
GnosisMan50: you might have to seal off the motor to prevent it from getting sanding
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
duane1234561: Mate if you made a kit and sold it in Australia you would make a fortune
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
Tiit Saul: wow. so many great innovations right there!
Abracahandra: Great job on the grinder my friend! I am in the process of making a grinder
