Making a DIY 2x72" Belt Grinder from Treadmill Parts

In this video a 2 x 72 belt grinder is made from treadmill parts. This type of belt grinder is very popular with knife makers because it can remove large amounts of metal very quickly. However, it can be very useful for many other metal and woodworking projects.
