    Hi rossbotics,
    Nice work as I said in 2016, this system is just perfect on all points.

    Just out of subject but it's memory, they were many little small firms around the threee swiss lakes region which made exactly the same principles of form and construction about 40-50 years ago when I was an apprentice especially for the Schaublin 70 and 102 or Simonet and other clones, and I never understood why this idea was abandonned since about 20 years( the CNC kills it in my opinion), it is a economical in material solution and not expensive to construct for all single or small serie production.
    If you want a clean surface to mount a ball bearing for example, it makes the job in 5 minutes.
    The standard grinding wheels were 50X10mm and in this size you can found about everything in grain or width in the past, now it's on the second hand market, and it was propelled with a round belt, the actual endless flat belt was not invented, the most expensive version was made with a B8 chuck.
    I've found the original Schaublin illustration from 1950 catalog which was not so good as the clones, the n°445 on the illustration, it's too short, yours is better for this reason especially for inner grinding.
