My Ghetto Vert. Disk Grinder Build!

Recommended Posts


         Curious about all the talk on Disc Grinders, threw this together from things laying around the shop, and...

Might have fallen in love!

Nothing fancy like the upper end high power VFD Contolled switch rotation, but...

Has given me a bit of knowledge and will probably upgrade soon.

Here's a pic and would advise anyone to give them a try, I was amazed how nice even this one works!

  Good thing it didn't spit it back out at you.  I worked in a packing house long ago and they had a grinder set up where floor workers could resharpen their own blades.  Maintenance replaced the motor on it one day and wired it backwards.  It had a buffing wheel on one side.  I think we used it to straighten out the wire edge, it was a long time ago and someone can correct me if I'm wrong.  I'm not a edge expert.   It made them back razor sharp.  Anyway, it dug into my knife and shot it out of my hands, over my shoulder and across the kill floor.  In a split second.
