    Hey guys, just been reading up on these boards to get my parts list all sorted out to build my own Sayber OSG. Based out of Edmonton so sourcing parts has been pretty easy so far as it looks like alot of the consumables can be found here.

    Got my 2HP motor and VFD on the way and hopefully get my steel bought for the frame/tooling arms this week. Wheel set is also on order from Oregon knife maker. Only big question mark so far is where to buy all my hardware since mcmaster carr seems like its for businesses or industry accounts only.

    Anyway, I've been humming and hawing over getting into making knives for a while, its exciting to finally be taking steps towards making it happen. This place has been awesome for some more local inspiration. So yeah, I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures and questions once all my parts start trickling in.

    -Pete

    Thanks Dan, figured out the mcmaster carr thing... Somehow I missed unchecking the little box that said USA so I could punch in my address probably. Hah

    Cheers Pete. I'm just west of Wabamun not far from Edmonton. Good luck with your build. As for consumables Bi-Metal is a good place for belts, have to buy by the bundle but a good product at a good price and the service is friendly.

    Yeah, thats what I've heard, its definitely going to be handy to be able to pick things up locally as opposed to ordering everything online. Edmonton area seems like a good spot to be for knifemaking.
