Too much TV is not good. Commissioned Ronnel to make me a 2x72 Belt Grinder.
Motor is 1hp 3Ph attached to a VFD for speed control, both items are Japan surplus for Php9k.

Wow variable speed, swak din presyo.

Kamusta sourcing ng belts, madali lang?

Edit: ...and i guess that's another tool in your arsenal of sharpening equipment. With a variable degree tool rest, i don't see why you can't sharpen 2012nb planer blades for example. That machine will earn it's keep.

Post away when you are using it already.

Maybe start with old CS blades, I don't have a forge yet to use old files. As for the belts, Ronnel DIY'd the first one, there is a supplier along Scout Rallos that accepts made to order.

Roston Marketing Corporation, 131 Sct. Rallos.
