So someone asked me if I can sharpen this... They use it at his work for cutting paper board on their CAD table. I haven't attempted it yet... Hope it goes ok :-\ I told him $10 but I'm second guessing myself now. He has about 5 more needing sharpened, but This is a trial. The good news is that he doesn't care if I screw it up :-) they normally just trash them anyway and then buy a new one (for about $40-45 ea). I'll keep you posted!

It is double sided (which will be challenging) and I think it's at 28dps. I don't think I would want to do this on powered equipment though...

What kind of work do you do? Your hands look like mine. LOL. Looks like that is going to be a tough one to sharpen.

That looks sweet. One day I will have a belt grinder setup so I can do things like that, I just have to buy a house first.

Well I wish I was cop! I am a machine maintenance technician. I do everything from electrical to machining parts to keep everything running.

I don't have a house either... Just renting... Probably should have made wiser decisions lol but oh well.

Man, you may be in a position to machine some "Super secret squirrel" parts for clay if you have that ability... I would get with him on that :-)

Nah, you really don't want to be a cop... Its not all its cracked up to be. Very political and always have to worry about being sued lol

You have a good point on the cop part.

I hope to buy a house this year. I am 39 and should have made better decisions myself, but hey we only live once and we can't take it with us when we go, right.

I wish I could.Unfortunately they are super strict because we do a lot of government stuff, so we have to be careful about what we do. I talked to my boss about machining some small parts for a project that I had at the house, you would have thought I was asking to take the whole machine shop to my house to do it.

I have seen some of the work you do and it looks great.

Looks like it will have to go in the low angle jaws if it is going to be sharpened on the WE.

Hey, you guys. My wife & I didn't buy a house until our late 40's. My Dad was still alive then. He & I walked together to the back of the property. As we turned around, he put his arm around my shoulders, looked me in the eye (with a twinkle) and said, "Now, you'll figure out why a lot of people think it is better to rent than own."

You can't call the landlord to fix the deck or refrigerator. A leaky dishwasher is a $10,000 kitchen floor rebuild.

Oh, I suppose there are the benefits, but I'm just saying, not owning a house yet isn't a sign of anything!!

Granted, there's something else that's nice about coming home as opposed to coming to the rental.

Maybe those decisions of a well-spent youth "were" the right decisions! When else do you get THOSE experiences!!! B) :silly: :blink: :pinch:

For Now,

Gib
