Your videos were very thorough and a great help. I followed your instructions wiring the VFD and to my surprise, it worked on the first try.
A grinder so sexy even the ladies want to play!

Here's what the home-builders are saying
When I originally looked to buy a belt grinder, ones with the features of Brian House design were in starting range of $3500. So, a good money saver there.
Plus, it was fun to build.
Hands-down the best DIY grinder!!!
You definitely wont regret it!!
To anyone on the fence about the revolution, Do It!!
It’s like a big metal Lego set and Brian makes it stupid easy. I have zero fabricating experience. I joined a local maker’s space that has a welder and all the tools I needed.
Everything was spot on and the videos make everything so clear and precise.
Just be patient and soak the parts in vinegar like he recommends and it will be a fun project.
Love my Revolution!
Brian has an awesome long video of the entire build process that doesn't skip a single step.
This thing is a beast.
Brian House did a great job. Awesome design you won't be disappointed.
Why build the Revolution 2x72 grinder?
It can do everything.
• Tilt 90° to run horizontally
• Track perfectly in forward & reverse without additional tooling
• Accept 1.5" tooling arms for interchangeable attachments
• Compatible with many add-ons, parts, and accessories from other brands
It's a DIY game-changer.
You could spend $2500-$3500+ on a comparable industrial belt grinder with the same (or less) features.
Whether you source your own parts or get them from us, the Revolution DIY grinder will save you a bunch of money and give you the satisfaction of having built the tool yourself.
Once you have this in your shop, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.
You get endless support.
Through website chat, email, and our social communities, this project thrives because it is so well supported. Brian is hands-on with all build questions personally.
Additionally, the Revolution grinder community is one of the most collaborative and helpful groups of makers we've ever known. They are truly awesome at supporting this project!
