2" x 72" Reeder grinder with a 2 HP motor and a VFD. It's a big step up from the 1" x 30" Harbor Freight grinder I've been using. Going make momma a new paring knife. ;)

Nice. Damn son, you have more  "ramset" loads than a Home Depot. I probably have half as much myself though.

Wow, and industrial grade meat slicer.  Makes me want a baloney sandwich.

Not a slicer. A sander. Although with a 36 grit belt on it you could make ground meat out of your hands a fingers if you aren't careful.

I have two sanders.  One is a hand held Black and Decker oscillating sander.  It doesn't actually seem to sand anything, but it makes workmanlike buzzing sound.  The other is a belt sander that I needed to shape the corners on some cabinet tops I made.  I have also used it for needs I don't experience often.  A stationary sander seems rather specialized.  What are you using it for?

I got a new toy too.

I can't share what it is or used for here.

But it does have a nice blue marble design

My grinder is up and running. Getting it running was the easy part. The hard part was reorganizing the garage so I'd have a good place to run it.

lol. If you had spent Friday night and all day Saturday, Sunday, and Monday cleaning and organizing your kitchen like I did my garage I'm sure it would be.

So I got the forge fired up and started 6 knives today. The 3 on the right have been heat treated.

Got a small wheel attachment so I can get into those inside corners easier.
