View Full Version : Abrasive Evan

12-19-2013, 09:32 AM
I seem to recall that Evan's wife was in the abrasives business .. however I can no longer
find contact informatioin in Evan's posts.

I'd like to pick up 2 or 3 wheels for the surface grinder, would like to talk to someone who
knows their stuff, and would certainly prefer to support a board member if I can.

Anyone happen to have contact information?

Perhaps he has retracted the contact information for a reason?

IIRC it was an experimental paid add in his sig. My guess would be there aren't enough of us doing abrasive work for those ad to have paid for itself. The company was l&s industries in Williams lake BC.

Evan is very abrasive at times LOL just kidding pal come back soon sometimes your soor old puss is missed that's face in English LOL seriously his wife is an expert in abrasives she does it full time her own business I think. Have fun but I think he and possibly the missus as well, are taking a well earned pause/break. Alistair

Tony - you're somewhere in Europe, and Evan & wife are in Canada. And looking at the L&S page they seem to specialise in serving the Forest products industry, not the toolroom.
Why on earth would you want to talk to someone that far away when you'll have a dozen local reps and technical specialists at the end of a phone in your own country????
And they can visit you as well....

If I were you I'd just type "Surface grinding wheels" into your local Google page and take if from there.

I split my time between here (Italy) and the States (East Coast). Pending trip (holidays) and I do my best to hit my
luggage weight limit. :) Problem with this hobby is that doesn't take very much! Two grinding wheels and a
toolmakers vise and I have to start leaving clothes behind.

That said, even when I shop local that means the UK. (Chronos, ArcEuro, etc)

This country is a mess.

Not to mention I still don't know enough about what I'm doing (grinding) to make my own sound decisions.

Talking to an (english speaking!) tech, and potentially supporting someone related to the BBS are both
bonuses in my book.

I did see the site, I didn't realize it was Foresty specific products -- I wonder if its all the same?

The company Evan's wife manages handles filing room supplies which most certainly crosses well with toolroom grinding supplies since running a saw filing operation is just as demanding.

I can also vouch for her knowledge of the subject which eclipses anything you would find at one of the big book retailers.

My two cents...tool room 'stoneology' and filing room 'grindology' and not closely related...two different arenas. I did grinding room 'grindology' for many years which included SG wheels, CBN wheels and AO wheels, all grinding D2 steels and above and I would be very hesitant to offer any advice into a tool room grinding conversation...but I could be in the river valley in Egypt.
