GRINDERS - KMG - The Knife Maker's Grinder


The KMG from Beaumont Metal Works is arguably the most famous knife making grinder in the world.  Developed in consultation with untold numbers of makers from all corners of the craft, it serves well for the hobbiest, the production shop and all in between.


The modular design of the KMG offers everything you need and nothing you don't - all at top quality - reasonable price and in time proven design. 


We sell the grinders both with and without motors.  The motors supplied by Beaumont are of very good quality and though a bit pricey - definitely represent the 'no hassle' choice.  You can buy the 1 1/2 HP TEFC motor at Princess Auto for $299 cdn even when it isn't on sale.  With the three step pulleys, you get speeds of 900, 1800 and 3600 surface feet per minute belt speeds.  Pretty hard to beat that. 


Now, if you won the lottery - and the three speed setup isn't good enough, you could get the VFD drive version - about $1500 on top of the grinder price.  The "cadillac choice" is appreciated by many makers.  No one has every been sorry they purchased a VS setup.


You can buy motors at electrical supply houses, or notably at places like Princess Auto very reasonably and in variety we could not possibly offer.  Note that motors should be TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) because grinding dust eats motors in very short order.  We do offer 3 step pulleys so you can have a very economical speed control option.
