I’ve wanted a water-cooled, slow rpm grindstone for years to touch up old axe heads I pick up at junk, antique, and used tool stores. The good ones cost way more than I’m willing to invest, and the cheap ones don’t have the water bath and they spin too quickly. But while in New Brunswick my new friend Earl Magee told me about a slower stone that won’t break the bank. The stone is 10 inches by 2 inches and spins at 75 rpm in a water bath. And the price is $185 (Canadian) until May.
I’m ordering one tomorrow. Now I just need to come up with an excuse for the wife. If you have any ideas on this please email them to me.
