It comes with all the metal parts/hardware, minus wheels. You assemble/weld the entire thing.Grinder looks good. I do have a question, in looking thru https://housemade.us/ website I'm not sure if all the welding is done on the grinder? OR, is it a bundle of pre-cut parts that you weld together? That is one long platen - How long is it?. There are times when I wish I had a longer platen myself.
