Lots of hand tool work leads Stumpy to develop his own fully featured, completely adjustable, precisely accurate, sliding grinder tool rest. And how did a CHICKEN get into the workshop?

Stumpy I want your gold wrench. And we are going to have to do something about rust control on your saws. On the subject of animals, today my cat comes in the shop while I am soldiering copper wires to re-bar. It didn’t get him bad but his new name is saftycat. Poor thing, but I keep telling them get out. Being a cat they just look at you like [who me].
Great video and a very nice jig. I tried this with an articulated arm. It wound up to bulky. I like your jig with the purchase of the veritas rig. Another good one with tips, jigs and humor. Well written and done. Keep em coming.

I’m renaming you StumpyNUTS. You are a nut, but in a good way. Really excellent demonstration / how to videos you are producing. I bought the Veritas system. Should have waited on your video! I plan to set up another grinder to avoid changing out wheels. Think I’ll save $60 and give your design a try. A shop Chicken would keep the june bugs nervous. Thanks for the effort.

I’d like to see a Demo of your grinder using several of your Holders…

Yep… Stumpy really is a NUT…
