03-02-2017: Cylindrical grinding attachement & Shop tips
I built an attachement for the surface grinder that allows for very precise cylindrical grinding between centers: Cylindrical grinding attachement
And on the same topic, Robin Renzetti (Who inspired me to this device) just showed an very ingenious way to do centerless grinding with a rather simple setup.
An section for simple, short shop tips was also added, it is down in the ressources section.
I will try to add content to that section (and the small projects section) on a regular basis.
