like you shop space is limited at the moment! So I’ve been thinking of going this route for a simple belt grinder. I bought a 1x72 grizzly that isn’t worth the time and money invested in it which is a motivator here. Most shops have the vertical space to handle something 36” tall. The other advantage of a 72” belt I’d that the work table can be placed above the motor and you still have room for a backer and slack ( somewhat) belt grinding.
if I go this route the other advantage is that a more complex grinder would likely use the same belts. In any event just some ideas to chew on.
Thanks for the positive comments. I don't know what advantage having a 72" belt would give. The 48" belt is a lot less expensive and I have a solid backer and plenty of slack for edge deburring.
Good luck with your build.
