Shut up and Sharpen

I’ve been meaning to put up a post in response to this post.  BUT .. more importantly, I’ve been wanting to replace my Tormek with a regular, faster bench grinder.  So, I finally did it and bought a PORTER-CABLE 8″ Variable Speed Bench Grinder.

My method of sharpening is pretty much what I’ve picked up from Chris, so no real surprises.  So for what it’s worth, here’s a quick gallery of photos with one little grinder trick  that I picked up in a class I took from Chris. 

BTW if you have a subscription to Fine Woodworking Online, here’s link to a good article on grinders:
