    Fascinating for someone way outside of the fabrication side of straight razors. I liked when 430pat said 'pretty basic' on his tour of the grinder......I like when what looks to me like native genius combines with humility.....thanks again for the post.

    VERY nice! I'm sure with more time on it you will fine tune it & get things "just right". Looks like you took your time and thought it out well...looks like a top notch piece of equipment. Thank you both for sharing!

    EDIT: Also, if you're intenting to do higher grit grinding after heat treatment, are you going to run some sort of coolant over the razor during grinding?
    I am thinking about a smiling blade jig for it but at this point am sticking to straight blades I will leave the smiling blades to Master Charlie. As far as cooling I have installed a cold gun which will sufficient cooling for the final grind operation. What I really would like is for some blade makers to come and try out my machine give me ideas.

    Forgot to mention I am in Connecticut

    Well, If I were a lot of years younger and had, again, the full machine shop capabilities, a lot good folks to call upon, and serious money to spend; maybe then I could, perhaps, match the work. He done very good and I've known a lot of engineering and design folks who would not have even come close.!

    That's awesome. We have brought back and/or preserved a lot on the user side, and it's fantastic to see another leap forward on the production side.

    It is easy to Rube Goldburg, but really hard to come up with clean, efficient designs. This is an impressive setup.

    Thank you Charlie, after visiting with you I realized I was to uncoordinated for free hand grinding so I had to build an idiot proof grinder for guys like me.
