You can rig a Blanchard grinder using a good angle grinder, cup wheel and cold rolled steel. You should be able to take light cuts and manage +/- a couple of thou...
I like the table. Is that an iron worker in the background? And a Fronius welder? Tell us more about those!So I just bought this:

About 2200lbs of Acorn (aside - Acorn cast my big 30" 1898 bandsaw as well).
It's cut down to 41"x41", which suits me fine - putting a 5'x5' table in my shop would be challenging.
It is, however, rough - too much time outside, lots of weld splatter, etc. I had thought to find a shop to surface it, and apparently only one shop in town has anything that will handle the mass and bed size. United Engineering quoted me $1400 to do it. I assume that's their "f*** off" price. At that price I'll buy a big angle grinder and flap disk and do something "ok" myself.
Any better suggestions? I don't need machinist precision - it's going in my smithy for a bit of welding support and a bunch of jigging.
I wish! No, the photo is by the seller who has the most beautiful hobby shop I've ever seen. The table is sitting in a friend's works yard until I get some barge space to bring it over.I like the table. Is that an iron worker in the background? And a Fronius welder? Tell us more about those!
Do you have more info - or a picture- of this angle grinder modification?
I see the shroud is height adjustable.
No, I had Adam at South Island Lift pick it up and drop it. Sadly he's moving up-island, so it will be harder to move it to its next spot.Did Terry deliver that?
Right, I recognize Adam's truck. Too bad he's movingNo, I had Adam at South Island Lift pick it up and drop it. Sadly he's moving up-island, so it will be harder to move it to its next spot.
In any case, I think the surfacing is going to happen *right there*. I can catch the slurry in some tarp to keep from being too messy, I think.
