Sharpening - 6 replies

I am considering buying some electric sharpening tools, you can see many of the tools I am looking at on E-bay. I would like to begin a sharpening service to sharpen tools for others for a fee.

I bought a used bandsaw a few months back. I had used a friend’s bandsaw for resawing over the years, and wasn’t pleased with the results. The other night I decided to tackle it and familiarize myself with the workings of it because my experience to date was unpleasant to say the least. As most of you know to combat tracking off cent...
