    Eventually I plan on giving the grinder a paintjob but I haven’t been able to pick a color so I haven’t done it yet.

    @Dabbs will tell you to go red. I think he wound up painting a chunk of the garage red at the same time when he painted his. :) I see by the way you made the rest you will have plenty of table if some gets ground off being too close to the wheel. I like your work.

    LOL, I thought the same thing with Dabbs and the red

    Thanks for the ideas on the tool rests.
    A buddy that was moving gave me his little grinder, and all that needs work are the tool rests. Looks like this one is from 1965.
    The wheels appear new and other than being dusty the machine looks good except for the rests. It runs smoothly and it will be handy having both a small and a larger one.

    ya some of the tool rests that come with them are more in the way than helpful. Looks like this was a needed project

    Great job on the tool rest. Looks like a huge improvement over what comes on grinders.

    This is what I use on my grinder for sharpening and regrinding bevels. It works really well and has a blade holding jig that rides in the groove.

    Bench Grinder with variable speed ?

    I am just curious what is the purpose of variable speed bench grinder ? For metal polishing ?

    That is what I am thinking, or maybe so you don’t overheat the metal when sharpening.

    I must of missed rylim’s post earlier. It helps with not overheating the metal when grinding so you don’t work harden it. It also helps with control, sometimes you don’t need to grind everything down to the nub. I have variable speed on both my grinders.

    Got one made. I haven’t decided if I’m going to put another piece on top to extend the table out further.

    @dustincoc
    I don’t know how I missed this..
    I like it, I just might have to make something up for my bench grinder.

    ThanX for posting the pictures.

    Thanks for the information and I have never thought variable speed controller would be so useful

    Oh they are so good, I love the ones I have. it also helps me use 3 phase motors in a single phase house.

    Thanks for posting pics. The rests look very nice. I mostly use bench grinder for sharpening tools like awls and chisels. Personally, a larger tool rest would work better for me. I am thinking about making one.
