Contour Shaping on the Beltgrinder
You cannot beat a belt grinder for fast removal of material, whether it be steel, brass, aluminum, or in this case Lexan plate material.
The belts for a belt grinder are available in various grits and types of grits, allowing you to match the belt to the job at hand.
You would never use a traditional bench grinder again, after using a belt grinder, as the belt-grinder is more versatile and removes material far quicker than a bench grinder.
Now having said that, I still have several bench grinders in my shop, however they are both used for specialized jobs, and in both cases part of tool-sharpening applications requiring green and white grit wheels used for sharpening carbide and tool-steel cutters.
