    Here is my BTP Belt drive kit and Linear rail conversion
    pretty happy with everything.

    It is defiantly worth the wait.

    I just got my shipping confirmation.

    By the way just a note on the instruction where it says to remove the stock bearing/bearing carrier...

    It is by no means easy to remove. It takes severall very hard whack with a heavy hammer to disloge it even though the instruction says it removes "easily". It's probably a relative term, as in it's easier to remove than the stock bearing from the stock bearing carrier (so you can reuse it)

    I bought the new bearings Scott sell it was much easier to do that than mess with the stock bearings.

    I'm glad you got shipping confirmation.

    I know, I bought the bearings too.

    You still must remove the stock bearing carrier, and the instruction says to hit it with a hammer from the bottom to dislodge it. I tried to in the past and it takes very hard strikes to dislodge them. I think dislodging the stock bearing from the stock bearing carrier is probably even harder.

    Yes the kit comes with a new bearing carrier. the gear drive unit was a pin in the ass to get out it took several wacks with a large hammer.
    you are able to unitize the factory tack if needed.
    mine will be running through Mach. I'm still struggling on what to do for an electronic enclosure.


    You will love the kit it is very nice. outstanding fit and finish.

    I just got the kit today.

    Very good fit and finish and none of the jury rigging that the Home Machine Shop in NZ has (being stuck on one speed sucks and that speed is fast... great for aluminum but not for pre hard 4140 steel)

    However the motor started making VERY LOUD humming noise... I called Grizzly and they are sending me a new motor...

    I try to be as fair as possible with all my customers and try to stay in contact as much as possible to keep them up to date. Granted sometimes it could be a day or two before I get back to people but I DO get back to them. It's very tough carrying the work load I do while having to play all the positions. Aside from my wife helping with some of the accounting side of things, I man every position.

    I don't appreciate being called a liar or a crook by any means. I've never had an order that wasn't delivered to the customer. Just to set the record straight, yes there were delays as to be expected which I informed him of. He received his order on Monday the 15th.

    At any rate, I appreciate all you guys going to bat for me. I don't get on here as much as I used to, simply because I'm just too busy and I have to sleep sometime

    Just to be clear, he stated it was over 3 months until he got his order. The order was placed the 6th of June and our website states at the time he purchased that his order would have shipped by July 31st. There were delays due to the high volume of orders during June and I let everyone know what was going on. He received his order the 15th of August, do the math.

    Are you the guys who designed the Power Drawbar for Tormach a few years back?

    That was for Novakon, not Tormach (as far as I know).

    I am in the process of installing the belt drive kit. I am having a hard time removing the gear from the motor shaft in step 5. It states if the fit is tight to utilize a small puller. There is basically no clearance between the gear and motor, so what type of puller would work?
