Well I’m starting to source materials to build my 2×72 grinder. It’s been kind of fun running around sourcing steel tubing, wheels, etc. I found a couple really good places to get my stuff, and may even be getting a superb deal on the steel tubing (FREEBIE), maybe. One can only hope.
Using the google I’ve found a ton of links on do-it-yourself grinders. Some guys even using skateboard wheels, I’m not going that route, but there are some great ideas out there. I just can’t help but go back to one of the most reliable sources for knifemakers out there on the net these days. That being D. Comeau Custom Knives. Dan has a ton of resources for the new knifemaker, and you just can’t beat that. Here’s an excerpt from his 2×72 grinder build. Thanks for the great article Dan, it’s going to be a great help to me.
I can’t wait to dig in and build this new beast for my shop.
Thanks again Dan for the resources!
Oh man this moving stuff is so fun, NOT. Just wanted to let everyone know that we got moved, but the new shop still needs some setting up. It will be a little longer before I can start taking custom orders again, but I will post up here when I can. I didn’t want y’all to think I just disappeared.
Hope you are all having a great day.
Thanks for stopping by,
