I finally got fed up with repairing the miserable guards and trays that came with my arbors.  I built plastic enclosures for all three of the double ended arbors.  I worked with a wood prototype for several months to get the bugs worked out.  I need one more arbor and then I can get rid of the stainless steel unit you see in the back.  I don't have running water so all the units are plumbed into a cascade filter bucket system.  Turning on the pump also energises the circuit for the drive motors.  That way I can't forget to turn on the water.  A nice plus with this is that my recirculating water is treated with borax and sodium nitrite.

Sorry about the poor photo.  I've been trying to repost without much luck.  I'll try one more time.  If anyone is really interested, I can post plans and step by step instruction in pdf format.

Of all the things I've lost..I miss my mind the most.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I used plastic on my home made grinder and I like it but it is not as easy to seal up as I hoped and any tips, info, help are ALWAYS appreciated :)
