Post: Re: CBN Grinding Wheels

I bought a 180 grit 4-in-1 from him a couple weeks ago. I'm loving it. It's perfectly balance, barely produces any sparks, and leaves a fine edge on my gouges, as opposed to the "you never know what y...

Post: Re: A Request for the Group's Wisdom

I would rather invest in a good sharpening set-up than carbide tools. The carbide tools are neat, but they're basically only teaching you to scrape.
