Ironheart Fabrication: Great innovation, versatile while remaining simple in design! Thumbs up...
Eddie the Grouch: Fantastic! The changeover design is just brilliant and after seeing it I
want to make a bench top version. That's gotta be better than a grinding
wheel for tool bit shaping and sharpening.
Thanks for sharing, Marcos.
Nigel Tolley: That looks like a beautiful but lethal machine. Your loose T shirt and 72"
of unguarded belt makes me cringe! That aside, lovely.
Kenneth Connolly: One of the best looking homemade 2x72 belt grinders I've seen. Congrats on
the clean build!
Dale Richardson: Excellent piece of work! How did you acquire the large aluminum and the
wheel on the motor?
Kahain: that is insanely impressive.
Michael Flynn: Nice build Marcos
Larry Perna: Very nice job! Thanks for the video and the ideas.
Paul Roberts: Awesome. Love the work. Good Job.
TheAgentOfTruth: Really nice.
You're using just that spring for the belt tension?
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!!
Alamodem: Best designed grinder i've seen. Do you have any place we can download
drawings or plans? Thanks for sharing.
danny burgess: that is THE COOLEST grinder I have EVER seen !! awesome job
Neil Hatcher: Thats a great job. Love how you can just flip over to flat to convex. Do
you have any plans for sale as of yet?
tellket: Very nice! He'll of sick monster look too.
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!!
tosee forall: Fantasic job, good to see material repurposed, keep up the good work.
Excellent design by the way.
klawndyke: ok now thats awesome
Jeff H.: Limited fabrication skills aside, that's a nice machine.
Tiit Saul: wow. so many great innovations right there!
Jose Figueroa: Wow! Good lookin machine looks store bought. Great job
wambolt1212: things awesome bro!
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.
aurora52378: been hunting for a good design for my next grinder... this thing is
AWESOME!.. Nice work!..
Jed Heinrich: That looks great!!!
Once I start building my own, I'll probably use several of the features you
have on yours! I never thought of using skateboard wheels, that's probably
a little cheaper than the $50/wheel precision ground one from commercial
Once again, looks awesome!
David Spiller: Awesome job Marcos!
Jose Ignacio Czudak: it's a beautiful machine. Hard to believe you to handwork. i try to make
something like this. but this is so pro! Thanks for sharing
mars1952: What size skate board wheels did you use?
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
hasdrubal121: Well done, nice job there.
megadwood18: nice job I like that alot
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
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.
Sean Roberts: sweet job man!
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
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!
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?
Hashirama Senju: Nice job brother!
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
Larry Cederholm: hay marcos would like a knife made are you up for it
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.
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.
Steve S: Where did you get the center piece of metal that the wheel and flat platen
in mounted on?
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.
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
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
Nathan Dean: Great idea
mars1952: Wow! That is a nice looking belt grinder! Nice work.
MochaTim: One hell of a job on the design and build. I would be interested in more
