    Turning crappy wood shredder to powerfull grinder / sander

    Bought used wood shredder couple years ago.
    Paid 30€ from it... after little use, i noticed
    That this kind of cutting shredder ain't very usefull, specially with fresh wood, that i wanted to shred.
    It was too slow in use, and got stucked too easily.

    Stored it, and now i found better use for it.

    It has 2000w motor and it runs 4000rpm.
    That makes it pretty good grinder.

    Axle was originally with M22 thread.
    Shaped it to M14. So that i could use it with angle grinder wheels.

    More info can be found from this "work in progress thread"

    Thanks buddy. I made this without rush.. so i hope i don't need to update this one afterwards. Still, i got couple things that i could add it..

    One is. I made four mounting screws to the bottom of the stand / cord tray... those allows me to mount it to another stand.
    Then i could use it as a lathe..

    Excellent idea

    I have been looking for an idea that I could adept to make a blade sharpener. I plan on building up the edge with hard-face rod, then sharpening them. Hard-facing rod is a chore to grind, but with a rough wheel, it can be done. It builds up quick on my diamond wheel, but Borzon wheels seem to do OK for the finish.
    I have an old electric shredder that I am going to dig out of the scrap now.
    Thanks & Smiles!
