  • 2 x 72 first run

    Well, I got the VFD wired up and the unit is running.
    Actually, it was quite easy. I don't know what I was worried about.
    For now, I pugged it into my mill's outlet. Will need to remedy that later.

    The belt seems to track well.

    Next is the cart it will go on.

    There is supposed to be a video attached. I don't see it here, but I see it on my phone?
    Hmmmm.

            Do hurry up and get a video or pictures Sid, I can only imagine a very long low lathe.

                Yes that worked. Thank you. Looks like a really nice grinder you built. Did you make everything yourself or did you buy a kit?

                  BF- I got the base, the motor plate and the half moon looking parts and the table (basically their kit) from House made.
                  As I said in one of the other posts about this build, I couldn't buy the material and have it cut (H2O/laser) for the price he has.
                  This is his business, so he's got volume.

                  But I changed a lot of the design to my liking.

                    I saw the title "2 by 72" and I thought ... "that's a nice long bed but 2" swing isn't enough!"

                      It's for pool cues....

                      Nice grinder Sid. I'm sure it'll be a very handy piece of equipment for you. Good job on the build. I hope you're going to share some more details......

                        So what is the feet per minute range? looks really sweet, runs great, nice work, Sid!
                        I cut it off twice; it's still too short

                          At 3600 rpm, I’ll get ~4712 fpm.
                          The VFD allows some faster rpm, and of course slower.

                            Arguably the most useful tool that you will build. I would be looking for at least 6K on the SFM. You will find that something impressive starts happening at 5500 to 6K SFM. Mine tops out at 5500SFM, it’s not enough!
                            To the rest, this is one of those tools that’s utility vastly exceeds most expatiation's, even the simple 2 wheeler s. Go for it.
                            Great job, enjoy, Mike

                              Double the frequency to 120 or what ever maxes out the safe RPM limit of the motor.
