Thanks for posting the pic. Jan.
That Taig is nice. You were able to clamp right onto the table rather than making the plate. Good thinking!
I want to mention here for anyone reading this that may want to use their lathe that it’s important that the flat surface of the wheel or grinding disk is used and not the outside edge of the wheel. The outside edge will transfer the wheels radius into the lifting angle of the pallet when grinding. The picture might give the impression that the pallet closest to the camera was ground using the wheels edge but a closer look shows the other pallet just touching the flat surface of the wheel.
Nice work Jan!
Please let us know how you did the polishing.
Thanks,
Bob
