    My hydraulic press plans

    i blew out the bolts using the stock jack in a harbor freight press to move metal i put in stronger bolts tried again and ripped the beams apart i built a real press after that at the very least if your not a welder you can prolly find a weld shop that can make something to hold up to the jack your going to use

    the only high wear parts on a grinder are the platens and the bearings nothing else will move enough to were out before you get your moneys worth out of it if you see something you like get it or dont

    2x72 Belt Grinder plans

    my motor is open and right next to the contact wheel and lower than my platen which i use almost exclusively never had a problem also i am running a 1.5 which is fine for most things if i spent more time making knives i would upgrade to a 2 or even a 3 if i was doing a lot of stock removal haven't changed my belt speed in 14 years might save me some hand sanding if i did
