    Hi everybody. Im from ontario.and im starting the joy of making knifes for my personal use..
    But i dont have a knife grinder. So i started to look for one, and was i sureprised of what was out there on quality and prices/$///$$$. Dont get me wrong there's lot of goof stuff out there

    There is a lot of good ideas out there on DIY. And in stores. So i decided to start fabrication on my own 2x72 grinde.
    My background as a welder and millwright and having lots of part in my home shop is a plus.

    So hafter work and spending time with my wife and kids. And hunting and fishing and spending time at camp i will be in my shope working on my new project.... my wife is so existed for me lol i had to put that in ...i know u guys will known what im talking about

    Hoping to make new frinds, learn and exchanges ideas...
    Will post piks of grinder soon

    well the easy way is to get a cloud photo host like dropshot or any other that you prefer. upload your pictures and once its done the host site will give you options to link via different methods....simple one is the jpg link....then you copy the link and come back to your post and click on the picture icon next to the smiley face on the task bar. paste your link and save.....and voila! image added.
    hope this is as clear as mud...:D

    Looking great CanAm. To me, there's no feeling like making your own tools. Something very satisfying about it. Even with all my grinders little quirks and all the readjusting and checking it needs to stay in square, I love it because I made it. It represents so much of your hard work and, for me, a lot of learning and effort (I had to learn how to weld before I made mine). Of course, Dan's blog helped me get started so, props to him too.
