    To the OP, absolutely yes you also need a T&C grinder. I like having my surface grinder bolted to the floor, but don't see any reason to have a small T&C grinder rigidly mounted. I have an Osbourn on...

    JST, knowing Denis and having scraped in two of his Featherweight straight edges, you might want to wait for his newly proposed 30" SE. Will probably be lighter and easier to handle than other SE's...

    Richard, I remember you talking a year ago about getting a pattern made for a 30" HKA (RKA?) about the same time you started casting your new 12" SE's. Did you go ahead with the 30" pattern?

    Suggest making the end parts of your pattern 1/8" thicker than other ribs to allow some extra meat for machining of ends instead of leaving rough cast. (For those of us who are neat freaks...)

    Have never used paypal and will not in future. If a person or company requires paypal and won't accept my money, they don't get my business. On the selling end, equally simple. No paypal.
