Features

Made in AMERICA, the way it should be

2×72″ Belt grinder chassis based on some popular knife making models, this one specifically for professional or well skilled knife, sword, axe or straight razor makers.

This listing:
  • Accepts any 1.5″x1.5″ tooling arm.
  • Included is the solid aluminum tooling arm with flat platen.
  • This grinder chassis is designed to accept a very wide variety of motors (the motor is NOT included with this listing, please have a look in our store for motor & vfd options).
  • Uses any commercially available 2×72″ grinding or sanding belt. 
  • The tracking wheel is 3″ solid aluminum & is also crowned.
  • The two wheels on the flat platen are solid aluminum.
  • All the wheels are 2-1/4″ wide to comfortably accommodate 2″ wide belts.
  • The chassis base is steel & welded for durability (inferior machines have flimsy bolt-together bases with no bracing); aircraft grade aluminum spacers separate the tooling bars.
  • Belt tension is done with a top quality gas-strut (made in US), no bouncy spring. Durable industrial grade satin black powder coat finish.

Shop around, we think you’ll find it a great value.

Consider these features that are frequently not available on machines even double the price:

  • – Solid cnc-turned aluminum wheels as opposed to cheap hand turned wheels
  • – Solid 1/2″ aluminum D-backing plate on flat platen assembly (inferior machines use steel d-plates which transmit vibration & eventually rust)
  • – Welded, braced steel platen mounting bracket as opposed to pieces of angle iron
  • – Solid aluminum tooling arm as opposed to steel tube
  • – Rugged steel jig-welded chassis base, NOT made with short pieces of flimsy square tubing or off-the shelf extruded grooved aluminum like some so-called knife grinders (look at some more expensive machines, they cut corners by bolting the side plates to the base with a strip of aluminum, cheap!)
  • – Tough Industrial powder coating on chassis
  • – Powder coated steel clamping & tracking knobs with replaceable bolts for durability
  • – The chassis accepts 2 tooling arms, many grinders only accept one
  • – Works with a variety of motors including Harbor Freight motors (many of our customers use the Harbor Freight 1.5hp compressor duty motor. An unbeatable value considering you’ll be grinding with a professional set up for under $750!)
  • – If your motor only spins clockwise, no problem, just mount it on the opposite side (see some Youtube videos).
  • – Our system is fully modular & we have a wide variety of cool accessories that you can add to the basic grinder chassis at any stage. Browse our Ebay store for various tool rests, extra tooling arms, rubber wheels, small wheel holders, a very sturdy table top mounting plate for the grinder & motor or even a complete bench for mounting the grinder & motor. We also have a special 2-speed drive wheel, specifically made for knife makers: it turns full motor speed for stock removal & one quarter motor speed for post heat treat grinding & turning small wheels.
Bolt this belt grinder chassis to a bench, slap on a motor (not included) & drive wheel (not included) & it’s ready.
We have high quality 4″ & 5″ diameter drive wheels with 5/8″, 3/4″ & 7/8″ bores at very competitive pricing. Also look at our motor options.A word about all the aluminum parts, including the wheels: we do not paint, polish or anodize any of these as it basically comes off during usage & finish on these parts is industrial. If you prefer a shiny finish you can use a buff pad & the parts will sparkle but knife makers know: shiny aluminum grinder parts go DULL.

The machines are in stock in our factory & ship same day or the next, not like most machines which are made to order in someone’s garage with long lead times.

PLEASE NOTE: This machine is for hobby use only, never use in an industrial or commercial environment!
