    2 x 72 Belt Grinder and Small Wheel Attachment

    I made a belt sander and small wheel attachment for my shop. The rubber rollers are from 3/4" to 2-1/2" They can index at 45 degrees around the circumference using the 5/16" spring plunger. I also made a platen (6" long) that I have to drill the mounting holes for. The whole unit is able to be turned on its side. Please ask any questions and I will be happy to answer them.
    I also made rollers that ride on the grit side of the belt so it can be adjusted to reach down a 4 to 5 inch slot.

    Gary,

    Fantastic build and great detail on the small wheel attachment parts. What type of coating did you use on the small wheel attachment supports?

    Regards,
    Paul Jones

    Paul,
    Thank you for the compliment! The parts are just sand blasted. I make parts for the mailing business and used to sand blast arms that were used on the machine.
    My neighbor did these for me, but I used to just have a table top sand blasting cabinet.
    I used to use just play sand that any big box store sells in 40 pound bags. Any blast media will work.( Sand, Glass bead, silicon carbide, whatever is cheap) It gives a nice finish but the parts do have a slight texture.
    Some guy recently told me that baking soda is also used. I would think in gives a smoother finish.
