Looks awesome man! I think it wouldn’t hurt to inspect that pulley system after every use so that the dust doesn’t get everywhere. I can imagine that it produces a hell of a lot of dust! Is it better having it be wet dust over dry? I know it doesn’t go nearly as far as it would being dry but I guess the water also improves the life of the blade, cooling it down.
I didn’t first know what you meant for why you were doing the angle grind but then I saw the log against it and got the idea. I think it’s important to get rid of that annoying little overhang!
We’ve got a few of the rounds ourselves and love them. They should be fully dry by now I hope but we won’t be putting them to use until we move to a real house, hopefully within the next 4-5 months.
