    Hey Bill,

    This is Jay Kilroy, from over in Vicksburg, how are things going? A good while back, like several years, you posted some pics of a belt grinder you had made out of an electric motor and I believe you had drawings for it. Do you still have that info? I found an old post but all of the links were dead on my end. If you still have that info and don't mind sharing you can contact me at Anyway, I hope things are well with you, and you are getting lots of time in the shop.
