Bench Grinder Country Living Conversion

We recently received an email from Richard Martin, who kindly shared photographs of his beautiful bench-grinder conversion. Here are his letter and photographs:

Thought you guys might get a kick out of this setup. I had an old bench grinder stand sitting around the shop that I was tired of tripping over. I rigged up an adjustable motor mounting plate for belt tension, fed the reduction pulley out the back of the cabinet, and we now have a motorized mill running at 72 RPM. =)
