Howdy, I am going to be joining the ranks of retired people on 12/31,and I am thinking about grinding another mirror. My first mirror is an 8"/f5 that was done by hand. Since then I had to have surgery on my right shoulder,so I am wanting to build a grinding machine. I have found some info on the "Elgin" type,but understand there is also a "Hindle" type. Can anyone help with more info on building these machines? Advantages/Disadvantages,plans etc. keeping in mind that I'am in a wheelchair. Thanks "Squeaky Wheels"
