The Revolution 2x72
Add tooling arms, small wheel attachments, glass platens, curved platens, custom work rests, and whatever else you can dream up.
The Revolution Generation 4 grinder is the most modular industrial DIY beast on the market.
Not yet. But we are in the process of working out ways to supply more of the components needed to finish the build.
No. We now grind the weld seams out of the tube steel for every kit, for the receivers that require telescoping pieces to fit into them.
Not at this time. The Revolution is a full-on DIY project from the ground up.
Not at all. We have had many Revolution builders learn to weld just for this project! And if you don't have a welder, maybe you have a friend who welds and owes you a favor...? :)
We’ve had skilled fabricators do it in as little as 4 hours -- but typically, most builders knock this project out in a weekend or two.
• Base Plate
• Work Rest (easier to build)

I love this thing! The build was pretty straightforward. I followed the instructions and picked up couple new skills along the way. I'm not a knifemaker, I'm just an all around maker. This thing is a beast!
Great build, simple, intuitive and very easy. Very solid grinder, stable and accurate. Lovin it.
I purchased the Ultimate Bundle with the plans and all the laser cut parts. That is definitely the way to go!
I love the grinder. It went together like a dream and works perfectly. The tracking is super responsive.
Was one of the funnest builds with my sons. Mainly use for knife making.
Building the HM grinder was a most enjoyable experience. This is now my favorite tool. Thanks Brian!
