You may recall that back in March 2012 I posted about a belt grinder I made, to be driven by a Shopsmith :

I am pleased to note that photos from the article I subsequently wrote about it have been chosen for the cover of the Oct/Nov 2013 “Machinists Workshop” hobby magazine. The article is inside, starting on page 4 :

Congrats! I remember the project and you deserve the cover shot!

Well done Peter, very proud of an ingenious fellow Canadian like you.

I was thinking of using my former Shopsmith bandsaw table for something, but you are far ahead of me. I guess I missed that post on the forum when you were doing it.

You inspire me to continue and invent a use for it like you did.

Again, congratulations on your publishing this article, I will try to find the magazine !
