grinder never clean up again

3 posts in this topic

was watching a captneddie video and he gave a tip that i real like when i grind down metal i end up having metal all over the counter that is geting into my switches. just mount a rare earth magnet on the bottom of the grinder so that any little pieces of metal are atracted to the magnet then falling where they will. its so obvious i wish i had thought of that before.

i like his videos so well ill throw his link too you

I cannot open the video at work (viewing for lunch) If it doesnt show it you may want to think about heavy gauge plastic over the magnet to make it easy to clean off. Just a thought. K

thats not a bad idea i think it would depend on how much metal work you do.

    • Thanks Eric. I had a nice "discussion" with my daughter about purpleheart before I began the project.  I am pretty sure that she will not be in love with the color purple as she gets older, which should work out well as the piece changes color.  I have seen some aged purpleheart and it had a reddish tint, almost looking like aged padauk.  
    • The Record #4 in my restoration video I bought for $5 and was a pretty easy clean up.  There are deals out there, you just have to keep aware.  I don't know where you live, but paying $50 for an old #4 is just madness.  
    • Another happy owner.  Other space hungry machines that only get occasional use have been sent packing.  The 19-38 takes up a good footprint but, does earn its keep in my shop.
    • A gift piece involved some purpleheart.  I visit this person about once a year for one thing or another.  The piece sets where it gets a fair amount of secondary sunlight and is the color of dark egg plant (think Welch's Grape Juice) after about 4 years.
    • I have sort of a hatchet-face, wear glasses and use muffs for hearing protection.  Finding a mask that does the job, fits well, is comfortable and that doesn't block my vision is a challenge.  AO Safety made a single cartridge mask that I still have an use which is my favorite.  3M saw fit to discontinue it when they absorbed that product line.  I saw Philip Lowe wearing one in a video and wrote to him to ask if he had a source for any old stock.  He was good enough to write back and we agreed that if either of us found a source we would let the other know ;-) I use a 3M half mask with the quick-latch for finishing.  For dust I use this Miller.  The miller meets all my criteria and is inexpensive.  It has really become my go-to mask for particulate protection.  When you find the mask that works for you I would buy a spare.  Manufacturers have a habit of "fixing" things or getting bought.  An item as personal as a respirator that fits and works well for you deserves a spare.
