    Things I have learned about grinding and Finish Sanding

    I would like to include that it is a necessity to remember to tuck your elbows into to the sides, as uncomfortable as that position is for me, it is by far the best advice I ever got! And once you do it a few times, you will remember to tuck those elbows! I think this tip is what Ed was eluding...

    Pin layout on full tang knives

    want to start folders

    If this helps, Travis Wuertz makes an attachment for the KMG, that is the very next best thing to having a Surface Grinder, while it isn't cheap, it's built as robust as the KMG is.
