    What's going on in your shop?

    Just always make sure to glue down... It doesn't play with removable fasteners too well.

    As knife makers we get excited about the strangest things... For me, it's this custom hardened steel (A2 @ 62hrc) wheel for my reeder SGA :)

    Works Rests, Platens and Chillers Sale!

    Yeah I run wet on my steel frame and it's NOT good hehe, I finally disassembled and painted everything so it's much better now. But I do have a trough under the wheels and guards so most everything is captured (except for when I do flood coolant :))

    A new work rest just hit the market

    Yep it will work perfect and swing out of the way for ya when you do tool arm changes (if you ever do ) the rigidity of the entire unit is pretty awesome as well.

    Whats the distance from the center of the work rest arm to the center of the tool rest arm? Btw that is a cool piece of history right there!! How old is that thing?! Can't believe that contact wheel is running on pillow blocks lol

    A new work rest just hit the market

    They are up on his site, I think he will list them here tonight maybe. He's got a black Friday/intro sale going on right now. Anyway, post a Pic of your grinder and I'll see if it would work but I'm pretty sure it would accommodate the offset position no problem.

    A new work rest just hit the market

    Yeah it's pretty incredible, I don't know how I could use any other work rest now without getting frustrated with the shortcomings lol Yep good point, those could probably be ground in by the end user to be specific to whatever wheel set up they had.

    A new work rest just hit the market

    I posted this elsewhere but figured I'd post it up here too. This post is basically functioning as a review/intro Hey guys, really excited about this but first - full disclosure. I have had Darren Nutt (Owner of Contender Machine Works) do some lathe work for me on contact wheels in the past...
