    I am doing a bit of house cleaning in my shop and have a few pieces of machinery that I have not been using. Sorry no shipping on these items. I would consider driving a short distance to help cover driving expenses.

    SOLDFirst up is a homemade 2x48 belt grinder with 8 inch smooth contact wheel. The tracking/rear idler wheel are home-made and could use a rework? You must loosen a bolt and tap with a mallet to adjust tracking. Could also use a stronger tension spring. The contact wheel does have some run-out. I used this machine extensively when I was a gunsmith for polishing chores before bluing. It can be used as a slackbelt or contact wheel, no platen. I am offering this for sale at $125. The motor alone new from Baldor retails for $357. Keep in mind, this is not a state of the art knife grinder but can be put to work, either blade grinding or secondary work as-is or could be reworked into a better machine.

    Next up is a Enco 12 inch disc grinder. This one is an older model made in Taiwan. Nice machine, runs smooth. I do not think I have the miter attachment but will look for it. Consider no attachment, but if i find it, it will be a bonus:eek:. $150. Enco has this one listed on sale for $239. Not sure what shipping and tax would run.

    Last up is a used Burr King 482.SOLD I have the machine in storage and would not have pictures until Friday or Saturday of this week. This is a link to the Burr King website. This is a top of the line grinder that is great for all the secondary operations when building a knife. The price new on this grinder , without shipping or tax is $1800. $850 firm. No pedestal, 110 volt, plug and play!

    A very short video trying to show just how precise the tracking is on these Burr Kings.


    I had a chance to get the Burr King out of storage and get some pictures.
