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.
