Motor with VFD
The VFD is the best selling KBAC-24D. The 1hp motor is TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled) which is the only choice for harsh grinding environments. It has a steel foot plate for mounting it to a bench & the face is 56C. Motor shaft is 5/8″ diameter. The VFD is wired for 110V but it can also be rewired for 220V (original instructions for the VFD enclosed). A 4″ diameter cnc turned solid aluminum drive wheel is included.

This listing:
– Accepts any 1.5″x1.5″ tooling arm, the accepted norm for serious knife grinders.
– Included is the solid aluminum tooling arm with flat platen.
– 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 is steel & welded for durability, no bolts to rattle loose.
– Belt tension is done with a top quality gas-strut (made in the US), no bouncy spring.
– Durable industrial grade safety yellow 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
  • – Welded, braced steel platen mounting bracket as opposed to pieces of angle iron
  • – Solid 1.5″x 1.5″ aluminum tooling arm as opposed to steel tube (thinner tooling arms found on some inferior machines cannot hold heavier accessories like large contact wheels & they vibrate; larger tooling arms like 1.6″ x 1.6″ are very expensive & almost impossible to find)
  • – Rugged steel jig-welded chassis, no bolts holding it together & NOT made with short pieces of flimsy square tubing or off-the shelf grooved extruded aluminum like some so-called knife grinders (extruded grooved aluminum from cut up server racks is the worst choice for a belt grinder, the grit soon wears it out. Some folk paint the aluminum black to hide it, careful).
  • – Industrial powder coating on chassis
  • – Powder coated steel clamping & tracking knobs with replaceable bolts for durability (some wannabes expect you to use allen wrenches to clamp tooling arms & adjust tracking on poorly designed machines).
  • – The chassis accepts 2 tooling arms, many grinders only accept one
  • – 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.
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.
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. Hundreds sold, highly reliable, highly durable, complete satisfaction!
PLEASE NOTE: This machine is for hobby use only, never use in an industrial or commercial environment!
