Here one of my current projects, its a bench grinder. The base and sheilds are cast aluminum, the rest is steel. started from billet aluminum, sheet steel, and a 3/4 round bar. Its almost done, but not quiet.

Nicely done!

Had to subscribe to this thread so I don't miss your next installment. I can hardly wait to see the finished grinder.

I wish I couldve taken pictures in the lab at school casting the parts and doing some of the machining, but the semester goes fast and theres not much time for that
