Here's a pic of my Tinker T&C grinder (assuming photobucket works).

Nice work. How do you like your Tinker? Has it been easy to setup and done all you need to sharpen?

Good looking machine! Where did you get the castings, was it a kit?

GA: castings are from Guy Lautard.com. Cost about $80, shipped from Vancouver, I think. There's more pictures and a full writeup at Metalwebnews.com. uute: It does what I need, no more. I've had no success sharpening the ends of end mills, but the sides come out sharp enough to shave with. It works especially well on those huge 2-1/2x3" horizontal mill cutters. Them guys are expensive, I did the whole project mainly to sharpen those big cutters. I pretty much just use it on milling cutters. For that it's great and setup is fairly easy. Kind of set-it-and-forget-it. It's capable of more, I just don't need more. Someday I'll build a Quorn. Maybe.
