    Universal grinder (works in horizontal/vertical position) will share a belt tracking system and other features with the standard 2x72 grinder, but for the most part, it's a new design.

    The platen on both grinders turns from 90 degrees to about 150 degrees (I think the range is actually 50-180 degrees), a feature I find very useful grinding single bevel knives (the direction of the belt is clock-wise)

    A typo, I meant the platen turns 50-150 degrees.

    Actually, 2x48 and 2x42" small grinders will also be available, and these can come with 1HP motor, and will operate very quietly. Our main emphasis will be on 2x72, as they are the most efficient, but smaller grinders that can be used in a small space (and apartments) are an option.

    Shipping overseas might be a bit expensive, but I can look into it if there is an interest.

    This is a 2x48 version of the grinder. There will be some differences on the version we collaborate.

    You've got my attention for sure. I'd love to see my local makerspace in Troy, NY pick one of these up.

    You haven't seen the universal 2x72 grinder yet)))

    The standard grinder (pics posted in the previous threads) is great if one plans to add some more grinding power to the shop. I for instance, need 5 machines to work efficiently and plan on adding 3 of these in the next year.

    If one machine is the choice, universal grinder is a better choice. Basically, functionality of horizontal and vertical grinders in one machine. For handle making, sayas, blank profiling, horizontal function is very useful.

    Grinders could be picked up locally at no charge, or delivered within 100mile radius for a fee.
