Grinding hand tools doesn’t need to be a tool-burning, ear-splitting process. I just posted a blog entry (follow this link) that describes my shop built tool rest used with a hand-cranked wheel purchased on eBay.

Images and a link to obtain a SketchUp model of this setup are found on the blog post. Once you’ve had the chance to look things over, your comments and questions are welcome, either here or on the blog.

Happy grinding!!
