I'm sorry it took so long to respond to your message, I just noticed it today.I'm doing fine and my knifemaking is coming along real well, thank you for asking. Thank you for the compliment on my horizontal grinder. I expected to have a lot of problems trying to make it track properly but I didn't, it worked perfectly as soon as I tried it. I bought the tension/tracking device from Beaumont Metal Works becaus it was so cheap compared to me trying to design and fabricate one from scratch($165.00), even if I was going to build another one of these I would buy from them again because if I copied their design my labor and material would cost more than $165.00 since I'm a one man shop with no CNC equipment. Have you started making horizontal grinders yet? I've seen pictures ofyour oyher grinder and like to, wish I had one, I'll look on FOR SALE and see how much they cost. You keep up the good work, I hope to see you again some day.
