Meta Description: Carl likes having the center of his grinder wheel 46" off the floor on a stand that he can easily move around his studio.
Note: This is actually part of an old blog entry that I split out of my January 13th, 2013 “Low Cost Industrial Bench Grinder” blog append while fixing up the photos on my blog.
I mounted my new grinder on a new grinder stand. It’s my 2nd generation stand. My 1st generation stand was good. This one is even better. A friend was over last week and, he really liked the height of my grinder. Center of grinder wheel is 46″ off the floor. Continue reading Carl’s Grinder Stand→

Meta Description: Quick Tip: If you use Acoustic Guitar Wire Burners to friction burn lines with the lathe running they work better than Piano Wire. What size wire? How to make your own.
Here is an old trick. I don’t remember who I learned it from. If you use Acoustic Guitar Wire Burners to friction burn lines with the lathe running they work better than Piano Wire.
The Piano Wire burners sold by “KC Wire Burners” and others are a single strand of piano wire. Acoustic Guitar Wire is a single strand of wire wrapped by a second strand of wire. See close up photo of acoustic guitar wire. The wound wire creates a lot more friction. Thus you can burn a line faster and easier.
