    well, I had to, but when the instructions say " make your grinder look like the next 3 photos" and asks you to use a specific size bolt/washer, without a previous reference of which one it is, made the instructions almost impossible at times. Good thing, I am pretty good at problem solving! And the pictures of the finished product on the website/video definitely helped! Still took me over 3 hours. Funny that he says it should take about an hour...maybe for him, since he built it! HAHA!

    Decided to do some shop modification for my new toy. Cut some plywood, countersunk some screws from the bottom to mount the grinder baseplate on, clamped the board to the bench, disassembled the grinder, sanded and cleaned the steel, and started painting. I decided that I should paint it to stave of any rust that might try and set in. Once assembled I will take new photos, but here is what I have done so far.

    Painted outside, but final dry will have to be inside due to the possibility of rain...

    Wow, adding that splash of HD orange really made the look there. You took a utilitarian tool and turned it into a personal statement. Looks really cool and I can't wait to see what you make with it.

    Looks like you still need to paint the motor or have the casing chromed :D

    And change the yellow on the Dewalt to Orange.

    I know right! I like blue, but that blue is not pleasant. But, that motor may be temporary. As for the dealt, not sure I can change that signature color!

    Gentlemen, we have all just been outmanned by a woman.
    Thankfully, she's a retired E10, so I don't feel the least bit insecure about it.

    Jealous of the grinder, too! Fantastic job on the paint and the setup!

    Wow! Thanks to MarriedTheMedic for all the likes! I guess I should have saved up all these likes and then maybe I coulda been in the running for most? J/K, I could never have that much discipline! :p
