The cold has kept me from knife making but now that it's warming up, I put together this grinder I've been gathering parts for. So now I can get to work. This is a EERF grinder , the CAD drawings can be downloaded from http://www.wilmontgrinders.com/Pages/EERFGrinder.aspx Big thanks to the guys at Wilmont for putting these out there. Saved me a ton of design work. The design is all based on 1/2'' plate which makes for a very solid machine. Shoot the supplied DXF files to your favorite laser or hydrojet company and presto, all the plate nicely cut and ready for some drilling and tapping. There's lots of wip's on the interweb so I won't get into all the gory details. The motor is a 2hp single phase and with the 6.25 drive wheel gets me a little over 2800sfpm. All the wheels I made myself at work with aluminum I got from Cal. Nothing real fancy here but a good base to expand on. Cost so far: Laser plate $275 Motor $250 Misc.(fancy handles, bearings and such.) $200 Tried her out today on some fillet blades. Seems to work pretty good. There's a few grinding technique changes I'll have to make getting used to her. Thanks for looking.
