    Belt Driven Grinder

    I stopped at the flea market and found this for $20. I'm not sure what I'll do with it but I figured for that price I couldn't go wrong.

    hmmmm...

    Looks like one of them new-fangled whirly-gigs!

    Make sure you bolt it to the floor before you turn it on!

    Thanks,

    Looks like some serious iron. Even if you don't end up using the grinder, the stand is worth more than $20.

    I agree with Vaughn. And if you end up hooking it to an electric motor, I'm pretty sure it won't vibrate at all!
    Best regards,

    Yeah, I'd buy that for $20, in a heart beat!

    if the bearings are OK, and you get some stones on that, it will be really great. The nice thing about a belt driven grinder is you can set the speed where you need/want with different sized pulleys.

    Very cool. Looks like it was line shaft driven originally. Any brand names on there?

    I am guessing but is it Babbitt Bearings? Looking at the bolts on top I am guessing it is.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    In a heartbeat I would have bought that! I have the matching belt driven drill press. Nope, won't part with it for 20 bucks!

    No brand markings on it anywhere that I can find. it does have "No.1" on the front of the stand.

    Not really sure what I'll do with it. I'm thinking I might take off the grinder and use the stand for my planer.
