Knives took longer than I was told to sharpen, personally I think they lost them for a while because when I called them they acted like they had no idea what I was talking about. Anyhow, I got them about 10 days ago and finally had all day yesterday to sit down with it, make sure everything was level and set all the blades.
It sure felt good to see chips sliding down the shoot after several hours that I’ve put into this thing. I like it so much that I don’t even like getting it dusty! Going to need a cover for it.
Thank you everyone for all of the help and motivation to get this old $100 rust bucket into a beautiful staple in my shop!
Project total – about $250 + a ton of hours (No charge for labor this time)
