Re: Exactly what I was looking for

Hi Jonathan,

One suggestion, if you make this....naturally, you will saw, place and affix everything with extreme care. But. The very first grind will still be skewed to some degree. So, I suggest slotting or oversize the bolt holes for the grinder—or maybe just put rubber gaskets at the corners, and don’t bolt it. Then, when you mount the first blade, for the first time, you can lightly hammer-tap the grinder base into true square. If there is a little vertical discrepancy, use thin metal shims to true it.

2 cents.
