Grinder make-over from Bob Roller

  A while ago, Bob sent me these images of an adaptation he made for a bench grinder.  I hope he'll see this and comment.

Art is not an object.  It is the excitement inspired by the object.

It's a rainy afternoon project I call my final descent into madness.
In reality I thought a multi use grinder would be an idea someone without
a lot of room or money for motors and mandrels could use. I am NOT going to make
these to sell but if anyone wants to use the idea,go for it. The Jacobs chuck was an
after thought. This grinder is a 40 year old Rockwell and the shafts from the motor
are 1/2x20 left and right. The shafts were made from one inch hexagon 1018 that
I had from a long forgotten project and I also made the special nuts from it.
This thing runs smooth and takes a while to unwind when the power is turned off
but that's not a problem.
Thanks again to Taylor for his help in getting this idea on the forum if for no other reason
than a laugh.

No clamps have ever come loose unless I loosen them. This thing runs smooth
and makes a good work station for grinding AND polishing.

Joe S,
Thanks for the endorsement of my multi tasking grinder.
As I said earlier,anyone that wants to use this idea or come up with improvements
on it then go for it. This one is a cobbled up thing but it works and works well for me.

Looks like a good use for all those rusty Spanish barrels everyone has laying around.

Red Green is a comedic representation of a DIY'er or handy-man who always falls back on duct tape as his major method of construction.  Dial some up on the youtube.

  Bob,, Red Greens favorite saying is." If it ain't broken,,,you ain't trying hard enough"
