    Hey everyone, I am new to this forum so this is my introduction. I've been making knives via stock removal for over a year now and I really enjoy the hobby. I have just been working with O1 tool steel and I use a "Gough style" filing jig to make my bevels as I cannot justify buying a belt grinder although I have been slowly collecting parts to build my own.

    Cheers!

    Levi

    Welcome to the forum!! Lot's of good people on here. If you have been making knives for a year with a file you have a lot more patience than I do. Please post some pics if you can so we can see your work.

    Hi Levi,

    Welcome to the forum! Some of us have been known to build our own belt grinders. Let us know if you have any questions.

    Welcome, Levi.

    I made one of those filing jigs a while back. I actually prefer using it over my belt grinder for bevels. There's something very relaxing about the process.

    Welcome Levi. By the way if you are not building a grinder, I don't think you could go wrong looking in the classified section of this forum and check out Jo (ConnerBC) 'S offerings. I bring this up because I know how hard it is to justify a first 2x72 grinder purchase for many reasons, and if I had come across these grinders before I bought mine from the states I'd probably have a couple of Jo's by now...Canadian made too ;)
