Guy makes 2x72 grinder from treadmill (uses part of chassis, the motor, the control board) and uses skateboard wheels as idlers.
90,000 SFPM 2x72 KMG clone (holy crap)
Normally I would not submit something of my own... but hopefully this can serve a purpose.
I tried to make some changes to a finished knife but made it worse and I ended up at a point where I KNOW many makers, ESPECIALLY NEW makers, find themselves....
----There is something wrong with your knife. Any type of "fix" is going to look as such. The only way to really fix the problem is to grit your teeth and start over.
It really sucks, but sometimes 'ya just gotta quit thinking about the time/work lost if you start over, and only accept your best.
I was in that EXACT same spot before I shot this video.
How about giving this a try, just in time for your valentine day gift.
This is the making of one of mine:
Homemade variable speed belt sander. Angle grinder as drive motor
It is guaranteed works, I have one in my garage

Three part knife build by Walter Sorrells. Covers a lot of information. He's really built up a nice collection of videos for the would-be knifemaker.
This is a tutorial on how to make a real knife by using the stock removal method which is easier and requires fewer tools and less skill. Great for beginners. I will be using the forge to harden and temper this blade but there are alternatives.
In this half of the tutorial I show you how to make the template, cut out the profile of the knife blade, drill the holes for the handle and file the bevels for the sharp edge of the knife.
This guy is an engineer with a passion for woodworking and building stuff on the cheap.
He has several videos on dust collection
Kikuichi knife making in Japan. Fascinating stuff!
