    3. Wayne Coe, Artist Blacksmith

      I classify myself as an Artist Blacksmith who makes a few knives. I built my first belt grinder using the NWG plans, with some modifications. Seeing the need I now conduct workshops to build belt grinders either "adjustable speed" using step pulleys or "variable speed" using a 3 phase motor and VFD (variable frequency drive). I also build and sell the finished belt grinders and disk grinders as well as supply the motors, VFDs and various parts for you to do your own build or to go with other grinders. I also have supplies for you to build your own gas forge as well as other items needed by Blacksmiths and Knifemakers. Come visit the forum. If I can help you or if you have questions please don't hesitate to ask
