    How To Build A Good Belt Grinder

    Ive been knife-making for quite a few years, and have always relied on a 1x24 belt grinder, as well as my 4x36 bench sander to get the job done. For the longest time, Ive wanted to invest in a 2 belt grinder, to make the process easier, but could never justify the massive expense that goes into one. Thats when I decided to build one for myself.

    Homemade 1quotx42quot Belt Sander Strip Sander

    The first step is to strip it down, removing the deck, blade, guard, pan and water catcher, leaving the bare unit. The unit, I used, had a 12 lip that overhung the mandrel on the motor which I sliced off using my angle grinder with cutoff wheel. Another advantage, of using this motor, is that it has a threaded mandrel, with a nut that is used to hold the blade, allowing you to install a pully without using a keyway Ill explain what a keyway is later.

    As the pulley I had was too wide for the mandrel, I decided to use the large beveled washers, that normally hold the blade in place, and inverted them to make a V groove. I found it was a bit narrow, so I used a lock washer between to widen the groove. The advantage of doing it this way is that one of the beveled washers has a flat edge, that locks onto a flat edge on the mandrel preventing the pulley from slipping.

    For the belt, I used a spare 14x20 belt that I had laying around as a spare for my lathe. You can easily use a standard 12 belt, but the smaller size is less stiff, putting less pressure on the motor, meaning it doesnt have to work as hard to turn the grinder.

  • Why Buy A Belt Sander When You Can Build Your Own

    Why Buy A Belt Sander When You Can Build Your Own

    The design is simple A motor drives a belt via pulleys turning a master 4x2 pulley wheel that the grinding belt wraps around. A second 3x2 pulley wheel, on bearings, is mounted on a 16 tower set above and 6 back from the master pulley. A third 3x2 pulley wheel is mounted on a pivot bar, attached half way acting as a tension wheel, draw the grinding belt tight and setting its tracking. The pivot bar is attached to the frame via a strong spring on its opposite end.

    The biggest decision is whether to mount the master pulley wheel directly on the motor, or to use pulleys and a belt to drive it. First and foremost, I opted for belt drive because I wanted the option of switching out the motor to a much stronger one, however I had an alternate reason. When performing intense grinding on metal, there is always the risk of snags and catches. With that in mind, a belt allows for some slippage whereas a direct drive system is less forgiving. It amounts to somewhat of a safety issue during use.

    Its important to note that if you opt to use angle iron, as I did, that it has some advantages and disadvantages. The obvious advantage is that it assembles like the Erector set toys many of us have used as kids. The biggest disadvantage is that it is only strong in two directions, but suffers weakness when twisted. This means that you need to assess how much torque is being applied to the frame by the pulleys and compensate by adding structural support.

    You can use a hacksaw to cut the frame, but a good angle grinder with a .45 cutoff wheel will slice through it like butter. After you cut your sections, I recommend de-burring the edges using a wire wheel to prevent cutting yourself during construction. Holes that dont line up can be drilled out using a regular drill bit and some lubricantcoolant.

    After adding the motor, tighten the belt, and complete the belt support by fastening the shelf which the belt rides on. I used 3 drywall screws, but an alternative might be biscuits and glue. A residential light switch and enclosure was mounted. Make sure the switch is rated to handle the motor current. At 110V, a 15A switch is good up to about.
