    I just took a quick look but for the price and what it appears to come with, it links pretty good. It is something I would take a chance on.

    I'm more worried about the "constant speed" I can't find anything that says what the belt speed is.

    The motor would probably be a 1725rpm or 3450rpm. Not sure about the diameter of the drive wheel but in relation to the motor it looks pretty big... maybe 8". That said I am guessing at 3600sfm or 7200sfm depending on the actual motor speed. Even if the drive wheel is 6", the belt speeds would be 2700sfm or 5400sfm. Either way that is fast. It looks like the grinder comes with a small wheel attachment. At these speeds the bearings in the small wheels won't last very long. The frame, wheels and platen alone are worth it IMHO. You could probably use the motor for something else like a disc sander or what ever else and get a motor and VFD combo for the grinder. it definitely is an interesting grinder. I'm sure others will add to this.

    Well, looks like it's already gone. Might just have to build one after all.
