idler wheel mounting


Recommended Posts

Dear Woodsmith,

Seeing your photos via the gallery kicked me into this. Looks like you designed and built a nice belt grinder. One of the photos (18412.attach.jpeg - cute kid!) shows one side of the idler wheel mounting/adjustment. What about the other side? What does it look like? Is it the same? I'm close and that's where I've been stymied. No lathe, just a drill press. Already have the idler wheel (nylon caster wheel paid to have crowned) ball bearing mounted on a stainless steel pipe nipple. Don't have the mounting figured out.
