The rpms are 1080 for the belt and 1800 or so for the disc from what I read in the manual.

    Name Combination 4" x 36" Belt/6" Disc Sander
    SKU 97181
    Brand Central Machinery

    I have one similar , it doesnt have the disc sander cause that one wasnt on sale when I went haha so I got the cheaper version.
    Simple 1x30 belt and 3400 rpms , its tiny but a beast!! I think it was only $30 bucks too!!

    the tw90 can be set up with a flat grinding attachment and work rest or with a small wheel and workrest in the horizontal mode

    What in the name of bananas! I've been dreaming of such a thing for a long time. It would be extremely awesome if you found a way to get it water cooled. That would be some serious grinding.

    Actually, it will have water cooled platens. I plan on doing a 15 inch long platen, as i find myself always wanting a longer platen on my KMG. Also working on a 36" diameter platen.

    Mike, did you get the cooler from Nathan? I have it, the flat, 36 and 72 and just order a "lengthwise" 72. I am talking with him (and getting some input from Ray Kirk, Toni Oostendorp and others who do a lot of integrals) about seeing if we can come up with an integral grinder that sits on top, but has the platen adjustment and the small wheel setup like Uncle Al's machine without the "high sides" to the platen slot and the $675 price tag.

    I like the idea of the 72 veetical, but if. you are planning in single bevel stuff, you might want to consider 36 or 48. 72 i dont think will be deep enough for urasuki. Still an intriguing idea i am also interested in seeing the integral platen...pics Shooting to have the 3x132 done within the nezt two weeks

    Yeah, I just did a knife with a 72 grind and it is pretty subtle. I have the regular 36 platen, so if Nathan does a few more, i will get one of those next round.

    So I recently inherited a house from my father, which was my grandparents house before that. In the basement is an old lathe, and at the end of the lathe is an odd belt sander. Took me a while to find the attachment, but the lathe powers the sander. Kinda crazy to explain, so I shot a short video to show it in action.



    I haven't used it yet, because I just found that attachment for it today, but my grandfather used to sharpen lawnmower blades and scissors and whatnot as a second job way back when. Gonna play with it sometime this week, using some old beater knives I have around the house.

    Haha, it's definitely unique.

    Anybody have a link to somewhere that would have all the belts I would need? I've searched around a little myself, but I'd like to find someplace reputable. Not sure what's what as far as that goes.
    The old ones I found in the basement are 1x44. I can use 42" if I don't use the wheel in the middle/back, and possible using all three wheels if I take the vertical backing plate off.
    Thanks in advance for any help.
