    Hello there,

    on Friday a friend of mine repaired the electrics of my beloved Belt Grinder (50x2000, 1,8 kW, variable speed).

    So today I did my first serious regrind since 3 years or so.

    Belts used: P60 VSM ceramic, P120 VSM ceramic and finished with 3M Trizact A160.

    I also reground the swedge.


    Looks very good to me. A reason for that might be the flat platen i made also 3 years ago (D2, 61 HRC precision flat ground).

    More to come ;) Hope you like it.

    On first blush I'm not sure what the improvement is here.
    Specs before and after ?
    All this for a combination edge ?
    Do you particularly like combo edges ?

    Sorry to be so dense but what knife is the blade in ? ( Brand / Model )
    Benchmade Non Conformist
    oops; dense is the word :confused: . . . maybe if I have more coffee it will help me :rolleyes:

    I'm glad the repair on your machine was successful ! ! ! :thumbsup: :)

    reason for the regrind was that the thickness behind the edge was too high nd the blade coating was scratched.

    I do not like combo edges in particular, but I like Benchmades with combo edges.

    And another reason for doing the regrind is because I love to do it ;)

    Yeah the regrind was to get the knife thinned out behind the edge. They cut so much better this way, as well as it being easier to sharpen a smaller bevel. I've done a few like this myself. Here's one of my very first attempts, a user-grade Pro-Tech. This one has been in my EDC rotation for about 10+ years.
