I’ll have to watch it later when I can turn the sound on Todd but damn that’s a haul! Is this the new career path? Are you a professional saw sharpener now? ;-)

Are you moving it all to Asheville to start a new career? That’s quite a haul, especially for just one person’s sharpening needs. Did you already have the gantry for loading or was that part of the haul?

Nice find, Todd. That’s a great purchase. Time to start manufacturing some saws. I could forge you some damascus saw plates.

Not a new career path. The main motivation is going to get it all was a BeMaCo setter for Brian Noel (Bearkat). But I couldn’t let it all go to waste. I’ll be finding homes for nearly all of it.

Let some LJ brothers know what’s for sale that’s shippable :-) If there’s like an automatic machine there that you can just stick any saw into and have it come out sharp and perfectly set, I’ll buy it…

Ha, Kenny, there is one of those it’s called an Automatic Teller Machine. You can put your card in and get yourself a BearKat, Bob Summerfield, or Eric Florip. Brand spanking new.

Yeti, it’s not a gantry. The video will reveal it’s true nature!

Todd, I just shared a laugh with my wife over this. We have the same potty in the back of our van for kid emergencies!

Finally had time to watch the whole video, amazing stuff in that haul. We’re you able to get everything in one trip? My grandma just sold her golf course and when it was booming they used to spend a mint on grinding reels and bed knives for the greens mowers. To a bigger golf course or a sharpening service that contracts with a golf course, that reel grinder could be worth something even if not complete.
