    Finishing Plunge Cuts on the Grinder (How I do it)

    My Wonderful wife Cindy gave me a new GoPro camera for Christmas! My thought was to be able to provide short "how I do it" videos. This morning I was grinding and thought of something that many folks have asked about during phone conversations....that I could never explain in words...so I tried out the new camera! This is the first attempt with it....but I really like the video quality.

    The plan is to provide short videos on various things that I've received questions on. If there is something you'd like to see, feel free to post it on this thread, or email me, and I'll put it on the list!


    This one is a test run to see how things will work. Hopefully, as I learn more about the GoPro, and how to use it, the videos will get better and better.

    The one thing I forgot to mention in the video is that rolling the belt edge over the edge of the platen only works with flexible belts! That means that J-weight or lighter! Figured I'd better make mention of that before somebody tries it with a Y or X weight belt and blows the belt up on themselves!! (that's a disclaimer!) As I wrote that something came to my mind....that I read on a can a shaving cream.....it said "Do Not Use near open flames"...... you know that wouldn't be there unless some poor fool did it!

    Ed, thanks for sharing this video. I have always ran the belt just past the edge of the platen, but only about 1/16" or so and never got a satisfactory transition. I'm going to try it as you described. It sure makes sense when I see how you do it.
