Boyer/Schultz Surface Grinder
I have to welcome the latest addition to Beevo's Machine shop, a Boyer/Schultz 6X12 surface grinder.
The surface grinder was acquired from another member of the Yahoo Valley Metal group in the Phoenix area. Above is a shot of it after I got it unloaded from the Safari Van in which I hauled it home. I split the machine up into smaller parts and used a chop crane to load the top section into the back of the van. After lifting the cabinet into the side door of the van Doug, the fellow I bought it from, commented that we should have used the crane on it also. Seems the top 2" of the cabinet is an iron casting and there is a welded steel frame inside the sheet metal, very deceiving!
A gallon of paint thinner in my Zep sprayer and a bunch of shop towels later it looks pretty respectable.
I plan to use it mostly for sharpening endmills and making lathe tooling.
