    Hi from Strathmore, Alberta.
    This summer my son decided he wanted to make a samurai sword as teenage boys are likely to want so I said we had to start small and we made a couple of knives with some help from Jeremy at Homestead Knives who I have known for quite a while. We filed both of them by hand and we really enjoyed it but I decided to make a grinder to speed things up. I am about 1/3 of the way through the BG272 dancom grinder build. I have autocad skills so I have some wheel plans at a machinist for a quote and so we'll see how that goes. Slowly but surely I always say...

    Great site and thanks to the admin folks for your work.

    Thanks. Don't hold your breath for the sword!
    I'm sure the trip there will be the best part.

    Hi Martin. Welcome to the site. Homestead Knives! I love his youtube channel. I am moving next year and I'm actually considering a seacan shop for wherever i end up (assuming I'll need a shop space built). Next time you see him tell him he's got a big fan on this forum.
