I really do not mean to be critical. But this creation does have some serious safety issues. As previously mentioned, you need to have a guard covering the grinding wheel at a minimum. Also, never use the flat side of a grinding wheel to grind anything unless you want a face full of shrapnel and some missing fingers. Without a cover over the wheel, someone could do that and be seriously injured. But the rest of it looks pretty nice. Putting a guard on looks doable.

There's an accident waiting to happen. Absolutely no guarding. One would think Home made Tools would include basic safety in its evaluation standards.
