This past summer, my grandfather and I started a 2 week long project at his house up in Michigan and I wanted to share it, and my workshop with you guys. The project was a 2x72 belt grinder. It took us over 2 months to round up all the parts and steel for the project and we had a little help from my Grandfathers friends for which I am very grateful. The motor is a 1.5 hp motor we bought new from the local electric store. It runs at 1750 rpm. A good half of the parts we bought, along with the plans were from USA Knife maker. What was out of stock or too expensive there was bought elsewhere which ended up saving me a few dollars Total, the grinder cost me about $300 in parts and my uncle got us the steel from shipyard were he works. My grandfather covered the motor and some other little things. All said and done, you could probably make one like this at around $500 if you have the steel on hand! This was my larges project to date and I had a BLAST making it. Now I just need to get a 8" contact wheel and some cubitron belts Besides showing off my new grinder, I wanted to make a thread about your shops so we can see what others shops look like. I don't know if anyone is going to jump on this bandwagon but I think it would be cool to see others shops, jigs, fixtures, etc. So feel free to show us what you guys have in your shop. Shop Dogs too *Sorry For The Mess!* My fathers table saw, radial arm saw, and our collection of wood too big to fit under the grinder bench. There is some walnut, Ipe, cedar, maple, oak, and plywood over there. most of it won't make it onto a knife but it is nice to have for woodworking projects. Our Drill press- it is an old Delta and it works great for wood and steel. This is my finishing table. I do most of my hand sanding and finicky work here. It is rarely this clean Here is my forge. I bought it for around $500 at NC Tool co. It's called the "Whisper Mama" and it has served me well. Comes with all the fittings so all it needs out of the box is some propane. Highly recommended for heat treating 1080 and small forging jobs. And at last, here is My Pride And Joy! I put a really Beautiful Royal Blue Rustoleum enamel coating on it and I like it; it matches the motor almost perfectly! Under the table is my collection of exotic woods- I also store my various metals on that shelf, along with my acids, oils, and WD-40. When I get my contact wheels, I'm going to put the different fixtures down there as well so I think this turned out to be a really nice setup. You may realize the work rest is a bit crooked. This is okay for me because I plan on just freehand grinding with this (when I get the hang of it). It works well for my purposes Thanks for looking guys! Tanner S.
