  • Source for hand powered grinder?

    Where can I get one of those simple hand powered grinders that clamps to a bench top? I'd like one that can handle a 6"x3/4" grind stone.

    Thanks,
    Dan

        China. I have one from the very early days. I never used it much and you could have it but the shipping would be more than it is worth. It does work.

              There is a mail order catalog that the Amish use, I have a few copies, somewhere. I can't recall the name, but I does show up on the news stands. I think the store located in the midwest. I want to say it begins with "L".

              People tell me memory is the first thing to go

                It's Lehman's Hardware. They're the first place I checked. They used to carry them but not any more.

                    This is what you're looking for right?
                    It will only mount a 4" wheel and it need a good cleanup, but if you want it, let me know.

                      Did you try the Cumberland General Store?

                      Their website was all screwy last time I looked, but I think they sold what you're looking for.

                            Dan,

                            Out of curiosity, why do you want one? I guess you have power in your shop...

                            The last time I used one of those was about 35 years ago - and I hated it! The thing had a 4" wheel and I could never grind a thing with it.

                              Ian,

                              I knew someone would ask eventually.

                              I have a power grinder, an assortment of files, and a good assortment of sharpening stones. I have some edge tools that could use a slight hollow grind. I don't want to use a power grinder for fear of burning an edge.

                              James Krenov and David Finck are big proponents of using hand grinders with an accurate homemade angle guide. I want to give it a try.

                              -Dan
