Toobinator 2 x 72 Belt Grinder for Knifemakers

Toobinator 2 x 72 Belt Grinder for Knifemakers


I wanted to give a shout out to a friend who is making some high quality 2" x 72" belt grinders based on my original BG-272 design. These machines are very well made and come properly welded, drilled and tapped, powder coated with platen, wheels and a 1.5 horsepower single phase motor. Just mount and slap a belt on and start grinding.


Check out the Toobinator on eBay.

Hi Chuck,

I have been here the whole time. I have 10 large chef knives to get on with, so I have been spending almost 100% of my free time on actually making things vs. talking about things on FB. ;-)

Hope that you are doing well.

All the best,

Dan

He still has the other style as well for just a few dollars more... is this design better at something? Was looking at getting an Oregon blade maker in the banana yellow, guess its origin now,.... but would definately get one to support you... think i have read your info pages at least a couple times each as i attempt to make a knife and the tooling needed

Hi Phillip,

I think the fact that the Toobinator comes with a motor and drive wheel for a reasonable cost it attractive. Performance wise I can't see much of a difference. I am proud of the idea that someone has taken my design, and permission and made it a commercial product. All the power to them.

Good way to do it. Some of us worried about ya since you hadn't posted in so long. Your posted knives on here look super sweet.

Keep on grinding my friend. Getting ready to finally start my first knife. Your DH13 pattern. Making a hunter for myself.

Have a great day bud.
