      That's cool, but you can't attach it as an image

      • This is a very cool thread, but it would be nice if people would stop quoting with pictures. We really don't need to see the same picture 2-4 times in a row. It makes it kind of hard when reading through this thread. Plus with a slow internet connection it really unnecessarily slows down the loading process.

        • i found this in a box today. made it many years ago. i know its ugly, but its functional. saved many hundrets of $.



          it was a saw, 5600 rpm, i put a grinding disk on it. perfect speed.



          i also installed a single point dresser with adjustable radius.

          can you guess what it was for / what it can do?

            I would guess grinding HSS lathe bits either straight or concave.

                • Dian that's a nice job on that saw/grinder, however have you checked the maximum wheel speed? That looks like a 200 mm surface grinder wheel you have in there. The ones I currently use are only rated to around 4100 rpm IIRC, however I just had to knock back a bunch of 7" wheels in the US as they were only rated 3600 rpm.

                    • Ring routing

                      I had to make some small diameter mouldings in MDF, two small for my router compass. This set up will allow me to do internal grinding as well!



                      When running the router, I did use a protective cloth and a direct vacuum cleaner against the dust.

                        • you got it. did you do some sharpening yourself?

                          the wheel started life as a 150 x 6 mm, is a bit smaller now.

                            • Small parts holder for silver soldering

                              Hello, Built this handy gadget from HSM article of the same name by Tom Bartlett Sep/Oct 2003, page 35. Uses copper covered carbon rods for carbon arc torches (should be available at welding supply stores). Spring loading on the moveable arm helps keep parts in place when heating.



                              My addition to the design was the flat table to fit on the fixed arm so that it could be used vertically in vise with a piece of firebrick.

                                Hi Dian,

                                I saw the guide screw and with the radius on the wheel and knowing that ice skates are hollow ground, that is pretty much how I would do it. Although I would probably be prone to over complicating it a bit.

                                Thanks for posting it.
