|This machine was built in 2004 by Bill Collins. I want to go
over the machine do some modifications and fine tuning. I have
wanted a tool grinder for a long time. Something to handle saw
blades, planer and jointer knives and be better at handling grinding of
HSS tool bits.
There are a LOT of options for sharpening blades, bits and mills.
Grizzly has their
blade sharpener as does Delta, Jet and every other wood working
Harborfreight has their
saw blade sharpener. There is the
Quorn Timker and a host of other options.
These tools are probably all wonderful to own but not economical.
My plan was always to build a one stop sharpening center. I had
planned on using one of the
import cross slide tables. When Bill decided to sell his machine and
made a deal I couldn't pass up a lot of the work had been done for me.
I plan on doing some documentation on the construction with dimensions
as well as my modifications.
