Processing a few knives I had WJ cut, currently have a 5" and a 1" wheel on the grinder.

In my spookiest voice, You cant resist the pull of a Wilmont grinder.
If you are going to the next Blade show, come on by and use it for an hour.

I may not make it to Blade but when I get the spare cash for a grinder I'm gonna give you a call. I really really like that setup, looks like it makes finish grinding a breeze.

Wow, that's awesome! I could ditch the goofy spindle sander with a horizontal/vertical setup like that!

What's the smallest inside radius you can grind with it? I use a 3/4" spindle on my sander all the time.

Thats just a Beaumont Small wheel attachment in my Wilmont grinder. I regularly put a quick change 1/2" contact wheel in it, but I also have 3/4", 1" and 1.5" for it also.
I use this setup to clean up waterjet cut blanks and then later to flush up G-10 on the handles to the blade steel.

Any hints at Blade $?

Nope its always a surprise, but we will have them there and if you are considering getting one it will be worth your time to drop by and pull up to it for an hour or two and make some sparks.
Truthfully Tim and I have not even talked about it yet, I think last year we had a 150 off special. Will do at least the same maybe more this year.
Might have a scratch and dent one or two for even better savings if you get there early.

No waiting list at this time, we have everything in stock. I would not wait until after Blade show in June 8-10 as they might go quick.

Just ordered the whole package. I'm super stoked! I thought for sure I was going to be cobbling together a real Frankenstein of a grinder- Now I feel like I'm getting my dream machine!!!

Can't wait to get my hands on it, Chris!!!
