    Hey guys,
    I just made a move recently and this is the new shop. It's not perfect and it sure isn't clean and organized, but that's just the way I like it! It's getting there and things are starting to move along nicely. I've got a big batch of nearly 100 blades that I'll start on Monday, when I get back into town. Thanks for looking and thanks for your support.
    Semi clean area, kydex work, design, and misc work

    And now into the grinding room

    The O.G. triple O.G. Coote Grinder. I just can't get rid of her. This one sees a lot of Kydex work, grinding 45's, a little handle shaping and it has a 9" disc on the side of the wheel, not perfect but it works. Still need to get a dedicated disc grinder.

    Ol' faithful. My KMG. This one will soon be upgraded with a new motor and a vfd.

    And the new beauty...The Uber Grinder. What a machine. There is nothing quite like getting a new shop toy. I'm still learning it, and all it can do. So far so good.

    And the water chilled platen is a must if your flat grinding imho

    I know it's not perfect and there is probably a million safety violations, but that's how we roll in the D! Thanks again for looking and I appreciate your support.

    I love looking at shop pics and this is a great set up. I was playing "Where's Waldo" with the tumbler but had to give up.

    These keep me looking forward to the day I can segregate some of my stuff and finally make a dirty room happen. As it is, the wife won't even let me work on G-10 in the garage because of the smell so none of my handles get done on the KMG - all outside with files :(.
