The HKT-1, 2 X 72 Belt Grinder includes a Variable Speed (VFD) with a 2hp motor, a 12" Serrated Wheel, making it 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. Other systems with these same features are running up to $3,500
