Wayne Coe, Artist Blacksmith

I classify myself as an Artist Blacksmith who makes a few knives. I built my first belt grinder using the NWG plans, with some modifications. Seeing the need I now conduct workshops to build belt grinders either "adjustable speed" using step pulleys or "variable speed" using a 3 phase motor and VFD (variable frequency drive). I also build and sell the finished belt grinders and disk grinders as well as supply the motors, VFDs and various parts for you to do your own build or to go with other grinders. I also have supplies for you to build your own gas forge as well as other items needed by Blacksmiths and Knifemakers. Come visit the forum. If I can help you or if you have questions please don't hesitate to ask

admin_dog,

I was just looking at my personal data and realized my birth month is incorrect. There was a note there that said an administrator would have to change it . My correct birth date is June 23, 1945. Sorry for the bother. Don't know how I screwed it up.
didn't realize we had sold out a couple weeks ago. I just ordered more. 3 to 4 weeks.

I am so sorry to hear of the recent troubles down in Christschurch. Just a note to let you know that you fine people are in our thoughts and prayers here in the US.
Retroguy wrote on diverdale's profile.
Are you using the 4 x 36. I only have a 4x36 and 1 x 30. I had a heck of time getting good grinds on the 4 x 36 . I actually use the cheapm1x 30. I just felt the other was too wide, everybody here pretty much uses a 2 x 72. I won't have the opportunity to get one of those but I am considering a 2 x 42 or 2 x 48. 200 dollars. Slavic Tely use one and makes beautiful knifes. Check him out.
