2x48 Belt Grinder Attachment

Regular price $200.00 $0.00 Unit price per

These are made and assembled here in my small family run shop by me, my wife and my sons.  

I designed this 2x48 to be an entry level, high quality, affordable grinder.  Belt grinders are amazing tools for the knife maker, blacksmith, woodworker, and other crafts men and women.  Unfortunately they can be extremely expensive and unatanable for the hobbiest or person just getting into starting a business in one of these crafts.  

That is what sparked this idea.  The Cost of this grinder is less than half of that of a quality 2x72 grinder and this 2x48 grinder has most of the same features of a 2x72 grinder.  

This is a serious stout grinder that will be a great addition to your shop.  Wether you are just starting out, or you want to add a second grinder to your shop without breaking the bank, or you want a portable grinder for demos or shows.  

I wanted to keep the cost down as much as possible so it comes unpainted, just bare steel.  The finish of the metal parts will not be the most refined, nor the welds the prettiest, but that Is part of keeping the cost down.  But rest assured everying will be solid, welded stoutly, and function smoothly.  All the parts are cut our of 1/4 inch plate steel. 

The wheels for the grinder are high quality Glass Filled Nylon Lightning wheels, not cheap plastic.  The Bore for the drive wheel is 5/8 inch and the bore for the other 3 are 1/2 inch.   

I designed this to be used with the Hercules 1 HP Bench grinder, but it can be used with other brand grinders or an independent motor (BENCH GRINDER OR OTHER MOTOR NOT INCLUDED)

IF YOU INTEND TO USE IT WITH A DIFFERENT MOTOR OR GRINDER PLEASE EMAIL ME AT refinersforge@gmail.com to let me know.
