      Revolution ID Plate

      Regular price$50.00

      The finishing touch on your Revolution grinder is here. 

      You've all commented, chatted, DM'd, and emailed us asking for the Revolution ID plate and we are delivering!

      Our sequentially-serial-numbered ID plates are 18-gauge cold-rolled A36 mild steel plate. Each one is cut, cleaned, painted black, then etched to remove the paint. Once etched, each ID plate is finished with two coats of matte clear to protect from scratches and rust.

      Will it fit my Gen 4 Revolution?

      Yes! The profile of the Gen 4 motor plate is slightly different so there will be a little overhang, but it'll fit. The last photo shows this ID plate mounted on our in-house Gen 4.

      Sourced in the USA and laser-cut in Florida.

      How to mount to your grinder with 2-part epoxy:

      1. Score the back side of the ID plate and the face of your motor plate with some 60 grit sandpaper.
      2. Clean both surfaces with acetone - take care to AVOID the painted edges and front of the ID plate, as it could eat the paint away.
      3. Tilt your grinder horizontally to affix the ID plate.
      4. Use a weight to keep it in place while the epoxy cures.
        Customize it
        There's no limit on what you can do with a Revolution.

        Add tooling arms, small wheel attachments, glass platens, curved platens, custom work rests, and whatever else you can dream up.

        The new Revolution Generation 5 grinder is the most modular industrial DIY beast on the market.

        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!
