no previous part Part 1 of Grizzly Viking Sharpening Station Refurb series Part 2: the money shot...refurb complete »

Time for a refurb of a garage sale purchased (2009) Grizzly Viking Wet stone sharpening station. Although its obviously see better days (see photos), the old girl still works well and the stone is still almost full size. I also have a big Tormek and my thought was to use this unit in tandem (with this being the “coarser” stone). You can see in the photos that I have already trued the stone square with one of those diamond trueing thingys.
.



.
Plans:
Dissassemble
Clean or replace rusted hardware
Prime and paint
Future: add tormek guide ?

Stay tuned.

I only paid 40.00 for it. I believe Grizzly retails them for just under 200.00 (but the shipping is a killer as its a heavy beast).

That does it. Next week I’m bringing you all my blades and chisels for sharpening.

Indeed, that looks like a real beast.
Do they still sell this?
It just looks more massive then the other units.
