Get the AMK 77 1.5hp VFD grinder for only $2,099!!!
Variable speed (VFD) must run on a minimum of a 15 AMP supply and with NO GFI in the circuit.

The AMK-77 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.

"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
