The AMK-77 limited upgrade production run, Black and Blue 2 X 72 Belt Grinder includes a Variable Speed (VFD) with a 1.5hp motor, a 12" Serrated Wheel, and all aluminum parts (except wheels) are blue powder coated. Ideal for knife making and general fabrication. This grinder competes with the many machines on the market that cost much, much more.

So, what makes our grinder different? Well, I'm glad you asked! Our grinder comes with a flat platen and a Serrated Wheel. These are features you will pay extra for with other grinders. Yep that's right, ours comes with both, and you can easily switch between the two by rotating the swing attachment arm. You don't have to remove any parts and store them. They're all built right into the grinder! Other systems with these same features are running up to $3,500

AMK, LLC only designs, builds, and sells top quality equipment and products. AMK, LLC has a history of engineering, design, and fabrication of specialty fixtures, automated work cells and production lines. 

This system includes a VFD with a 1.5hp motor, a 12" Serrated Wheel, and all aluminum parts (excluding wheels) are blue powder coated. See video and pictures above. 
 
 
Standard Features: 

1. "No tool" operation. No tools needed to change from flat platen to Serrated Wheel
2. Uses standard 2" x 72" grinding belts. 
3. Oh, and did I mention that you get the motor as well? Yep, a 1.5hp motor with a Variable Speed (VFD), 110vac motor is included.
4. All of the idler wheels, drive and tracking wheels are made of aircraft grade aluminum with precision bearings, they are 2 3/8" long. 
5. Grinder is made from steel and heavy duty aircraft grade aluminum, so it will last for years. 
6. All steel details are black oxided for rust protection. 
7. Pre-wired ON/OFF switch and motor. Operates on a standard 15-20 amp circuit. 
8. Tilt adjustable work table. Will tilt approximately 30 degrees.
9. Tabletop mountable. 
10. Gas strut tension arm. NO SPRINGS here. Springs are not reliable for constant pressure. 
11. YES, YOU CAN do slack grinding! Remove the platen backer, and you can slack grind on three different areas of the belt. 
12. Some minor assembly required. It will take about 5 minutes to setup the shock tower and mount the worktable. (This is to help reduce the shipping cost.)

Here are a few customer reviews on the AMK 77:

"I took some time to put my variable AMK-77 through my paces. I shopped a number of grinder manufacturers and settled for the one you make. Gotta tell you this outshines all the others I have seen or tested. My fellow knifemakers are amazed. Three of them bought each a different grinder. Two of them had to then chase down drive motors which led them to Harbor Freight. The other one bought a grinder with a higher price tag. He couldn't believe how well the belt tracking, wheel storage, and slack belt grinding was quickly available. He had to buy a separate cart to house his accessories. Needlessness to say I am very happy with my AMK-77 and wouldn't trade it for any other grinder. Excellent engineering shows through the fog. Ease of use, spot on tracking, enough power simply expands my ability to create different grinds, etc.--thanks" - Dan

"I have been using my AMK 77 2"x72" Grinder for the last several months, and let me tell you a few things I have noticed. Great product that gives me everything you normally pay extra for to get a different nameplate. It has made my work both easier and more precise, leading to a better product. They have a great, small, staff that are always there for questions, and service is second to none. In my opinion, this is the best product to get, made in USA, supports smaller businesses, and just a great tool. PERIOD!" - Chris DeMuth, DeMuth Fabrication

 

"I would like to thank Allen and Matt and the crew at AMK Tactical for the outstanding customer service and superior products.  I have been using the AMK 77 knife making belt grinder with 8" contact wheel, flat platen and small wheel attachment in my knife making business and it preforms flawlessly.  I could not ask for a better product even if I spent twice the money!  Allen and Matt are always there to answer questions and help me get the most out of my grinder.  Awesome product and awesome people.  I will definitely be buying from them in the future." -  Joshua Mason, Valor Forge Custom Knives
