    Bench Grinder upgrade

    Bench Grinder upgrade

    Given that I built the thing myself and it takes up most of the yard ( small yard) I dont think thats in the stars.

    Bench Grinder upgrade

    Thanks for the replies. The issue with a single purpose surface grinder is space really. I only have a shed sized workshop so while the items are expensive they do cut down on space used.

    Making a homemade forge, does anyone have any reccomendations for a suitable blowtorch?

    The knife blade is about nine inches Tom. Of course I can close the front. I'm using firebricks. I don't have back opening, but I could. Seems to me though since the attempt at heat treat went so appallingly bad that would reduce the heat accumulation even more. I just don't think the torch...

Heres a shot of my set- up so if anyone has any suggestions they would be most welcome. This torch nozzle cost me seventy pounds and...
