Ron, I'm not experienced with belt grinders, does the machine itself really take that much punishment? It seems to me that the workpiece only ever touches the belt.

Do you have any experience with Sherwin-Williams Polane (2 part)? That was the factory original finish for both Hardinge and Bridgeport, and is what is still used by most of the remanufacturers of those machines.
