I APOLOGIZE FOR TALKING TO YOU, BY WAY OF THE FORUM, BUT CANNOT GET THRU VIA YOUR FORUM EMAIL. BY READING ONE OF YOUR POSTS, I HAVE GATHERED YOU HAVE BUILT A UNIGRINDER FROM THEIR PLANS. I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN FINDING OUT WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS GRINDER. I NEED TO GET A LARGER GRINDER FOR MY SHOP AND WOULD LIKE TO BUILD IT MYSELF. I WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR ANY ADVICE AND INPUT ON THE UNI. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

Oops - I changed internet providers and email addresses not too long ago and must have forgotten to update my profile on the forum. Yes, I have made a Unigrinder (almost). It is about 98% complete but I had to go on a job seven days a week - 10-12 hours a day for seven weeks. So ------- I went back inside my shop yesterday the first time in seven weeks. Will be completing it this next week and hope to have a new digital camera so I can post some pictures of it. I really like the machines design but do not really have any grinding exerience. I did make some design changes in how to mount the wheels. The original design called for using some water pump bearings as wheels and bearing units. The water pump bearings were NOT easily found and were expensive when I did find some. But w/ help from Rob Frink we came up w/ normal bearings for the wheels he made me. Nick Wheeler and a couple of friends will help me learn how to use this monster. They like the design also so I will keep folks posted via this thread -- OK.
