The belt grinder is by-far my most usefull tool in the shop for knifemaking. My grinder is manufactured by Beaumont Metal Works and includes a flat platen, 8" wheel, and a small wheel attachment. It is driven by a 2 horsepower Baldor vaiable speed DC Motor. This photo is represenataion of the grinder, although it shows a continous speed motor with a pulley system to vary the belt speed.
I bought this Rockwell bandsaw (P/N 28-290, 28-295) at auction for way too much money, but went ahead refurbished it correctly since I'd already outlayed the cash. I purchased new Carter brand upper and lower blade guides along with new bearings, drive belt and other missing parts from The Saw Center, Inc. and Manhattan Supply Company (MSC).
I currently use this saw for all non-metal components. I have plans, and have already purchased components, including 2hp DC motor and a variable speed drive in order to convert the saw into a metal / wood cutting saw.
A relatively inexpensive way to add your maker's mark to your finished blade, is by using a home built eletro-etcher. The following page includes a wiring schematic and photos of a finished, homemade electroetcher.
