I was looking at Jens Anso's post on his homemade surface grinder and thought I might look into that myself. I have a very high dollar, precision, crossfeed table, about 100 pounds, that a friend gave me. It has adjustable gibs, grease fittings, and is graduated in .001 increments. It has seen very little use. I can rig up a dial indicator that's graduated in .0001 that's in one of my toolboxes. Yup, next project after I get some knives finished up and out of here. I had a large surface grinder, with power feed, that I paid $500.00 for and it took up half of my shop. Somebody with more money than brains wanted it bad, I mean really bad, and when he was done counting out greenbacks it was his.
