    What did you do in your shop today?

    Has anyone tried Bahco files?

    Makes sense. Rounded inside corner instead of sharp that could cause a fold.

    What does the radius on the edge do? Keep it from chipping?

    Don't mind me.

    Kinda what I thought. Not much info on them online.

    Ever seen a GEM? My brother found this one at his in-laws. I've not checked it yet but looks like it has a little life left in it.

    Looks good and 230/460. You're good to go.

    Baldor does make motors that are only 460v. Give me the catalog number and I will look it up.

    Thanks Vern. That's the post I been looking for.

    Wow, 1800-1830? I think I will just leave it as is since it was my grandfathers, and many people before him. I know a man that buys and sells a lot of junk and last year he had several anvils that were in pretty good shape at decent prices. I'll go by and see what he has. Thanks Alan.

    You're getting close to the max speed there. Depending on type, size and lubrication, 15-20,000 RPM is max on smaller bearings. Less on larger bearings. Can you see the bearings well enough to get a part number off them?

    This is a great picture showing how carbon steel sparks look.

    Looks like I'm going to need an anvil. This one was my grandfathers and probably his fathers but I think it's about shot. What do y'all think?

    You're running at 2032 ft/min with the 2.25" wheel. you will be running at 4516 ft/min with the 5". They should be fine but keep an eye on the bearings in the other wheels. They will be running around 7000 rpm.

    I like it. Do you have a way to vary the speed of the motor? That thing's going to be screaming with the 5" drive wheel.

    I like that wood on your walls. Well seasoned. That looks like a homemade belt grinder. I've been wondering, how do you track the belts on these type grinders. And, what's your motor speed?
