Got this granite remnant at local counter top installer for $44bux. Found electric motor at dump and the belt drive grinder arbor at Liberty Tool Co. Put them all together and made my first shop made work station for my shop. Bought a set of water stones but i have since changed to the scary sharp method. Scored most of thes tools at Liberty Tool Co. Liberty, Maine Tool picker paradise….

Looks like a great set-up. I love those long professional chisels too.

Very nice set up. You will get some good use out of that. I like the grinding head set to the back but I hope you have good visibility.
