    If only trouble was limited to kitchen supplies.

    Yvan queried the machine I use for sharpening all my blades.I posted this thread a while back, which will give some idea of my description of a bench grinder on wheels.

    Paul

    PS: A good meeting, but I forgot to ask Lance what timber he made his pine trees from.

    PPS: Enlarge the pix in the other thread to get a half way reasonable view and it seems I have a mental block with the size of the motor in that it looks to be 1KW despite two previous incorrect assessments!!

    Paul, it was of course pine [emoji846].

    By the way, I found a second hand copy of the biodynamics book you recommended, which my wife will find under the Christmas tree on the 25th.

    Thanks for the pics Paul. They bring fond memories!!!

    I spent some time in Germany to learn the language and was employed for a while as a gofer in a commercial joinery.
    The business was large enough to import timber from behind the Iron Curtain, mainly Poland and the Baltic States, straight from their mills.

    Having no idea what a joinery was at first, I was fascinated by watching a length of rough sawn piece of timber being devoured by a long, whining machine and come out all smooth, shaped and ready to be assembled into big window frames, doors etc. !!

    The joinery had a dedicated sharpening workshop where I would sometimes have to bring a blade or a spindle molding bit to be sharpen.
    I recall the blade sharpening machine: a 4-5 foot wide, chest-height contraption with horizontal rails, with stops holding blades being lubricated and sharpened by a travelling grinder...with German precision of course! Your machine would be a mini version of what was in that workshop!

    I wish I had paid more attention to all the activity but, at 19, I was more inclined to watch the clock for knock-off time

    Cheers Yvan
