I have a Trendlines wet/dry grinder which has been in a storage room
for several years. It is their knockoff of the Makita. I mounted it
on a wooden base back when and it served me reasonably well till I
decided I could sharpen tools just fine with manual sharpening tools.
I figure that I can do without stuff I have not used for six or seven
years. Last time I powered it up it worked.
So, if someone on Long Island, or within reasonable distance, is
interested, send me e-mail. If we can work out a way to meet, it is
yours. As and when I find the miscellaneous stuff I got for it, such
as additional wheels and a grinding jig - I have the Veritas
somewhere - I'll be happy to send that along as well but I make no
promises that that will happen anytime soon.
Preference to broke students and other such young 'uns.
