    I made the Gene Switzer Cam Grinder from plans in Strictly IC magazine about 5 years ago. Made 2 single cylinder cams and one 2 cylinder cam during that time. Am now into pen turning on a wood lathe and the cam grinder is just sitting there. Had a 1/4HP motor on it but have taken that off and made a buffer with it.

    If any one might be interested, I will get out there and get some pictures of it and will try to answer any questions you may have.

    Yes please! Coincidentally I was just daydreaming about this very topic, trying to figure out the geometry puzzle of replicating cam profiles from oversize templates. Hoping to 'keep it simple', I got about this far, the rocking-rotating principle. (Its not a real mechanism, its just to validate the motion). Then I stumbled on this fine machine & came to realize realized there is probably more to it ;D

    I semi-recall that SIC feature, but I was unable to find any pics on the net. So YES, any & all info is appreciated.

    ** Oops? I just realized you posted this in the Buy/Sell section. Maybe I misunderstood, are you volunteering pictures in that regard? (I don't want to create work for you, I was moreso interested in how it functions **
