We are getting packed up to move, and decided to toss the old printer stand that was in my wife’s office. She doesn’t need it any more (we both retired the end of January) and it was in pretty sad shape.
I just hate to throw stuff away and I have been wanting a grinder station, so I decided to ‘rehab’ it while were waiting for the house to sell.
I put a solid back in it (it had 1/8” plywood stapled on), added a drawer with full extension slides, tossed the crappy plastic casters and replaced them with decent quality locking casters, and tricked it out with a handle and set of brackets to hold my new ONEWAY Wolverine V-arm.
The house sold in FIVE DAYS, and we bought a new home in the Green Bay area three days later, so I’m busy breaking down the shop here and getting ready to move. The new house has a three car garage, and the 3rd stall is 33 feet deep … can you say ‘New Workshop’?!
BTW … the ONEWAY Wolverine system (with Vari-Grind jig, skew jig, and a set of Raptor setup tools) were given to me as retirement gifts by some of the guys I worked with the last 14 years. I have been using Eddie Castelin’s Blackhawk system, and have been very happy with it. If anyone is interested, PM me for details and we’ll work out a deal!
