Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I have been making knives and swords for a long time now. Forging and then finish. I got hit with some serious health issues that do not allow me to forge very effectively these days. So I have decided to try the stock removal method. I have a really good 2x72 belt grinder that I designed and made myself a long time ago. Problem is I can not stay steady enough to do good fullers and hollow grinds. I need to build a jig for grinding the swords but can't seem to come up with anything on my own. I have looked at many on here and online and non of them seem as though they can work with my long blades. Knives yes but not a sword. I lost some of my memory with the incident and I find it hard to remember my ideas from one moment to the next so that I can make a practical jig. It is really frustrating. A huge life change. The doctor told me I can not make knives and swords anymore and to not try. I say B*******! I'm not going to give up just because they say I should. I would appreciate any plans or ideas. I have 6", 8", 10" contact wheels and numerous smaller sizes that I milled out of aluminium. Just have to figure out a jig that can keep me running straight for the fullers and hollow grinds while supporting most of the weight of the swords. Thanks guys!
