Many thanks to Dave Smith, his Grinding machine page is the motivation for this page.
Having used just about every excuse for my 18" mirror not being finished yet, I am left with its just too hard of work. In an attempt to bypass that excuse I am starting a grinding machine. Here are some photos and brief explanations of my progress so far.
A overview of the table, you can see the 3" by 24" table, a 16" plywood pully, the 3 of the casters which the table will rotate on, the bushing / shaft of the first idler shaft, and the overarm arm. On the bench in the background is the OLD 1/4hp motor which will drive the grinding machine.
A closeup view of the table and pully.

The plywood pully will mount on the same shaft as the round table.
