David C. —10-4 on the WS3000 instead of 2000. I have held back on buying ANY power sharpening and have sharpened my chisels and planes by hand. Not that hard once you have them initially sharpened. I’ve thought about a slow speed grinder, but they are much more $$$.

Grub—I have a large Rubbermaid cart that I move my horizontal mortiser around on, that would be perfect for the 70-100. This old man’s back learned that treat quickly! ;-) With regards to the Wolverine grinder, do you use any of the “additional” accessories with this grinder, or is the basic grinder complete enough for most sharpening in your opinion?

Jim—Got any links to ”...a chuck with removable insert…”? Just in case I do outgrow something like the 70-100.

Moke—I do like the idea of making carbide inserts and own tools, but should probably stick to the basics at first. ”...The steelex or HF kit will serve as a good learner for sharpening too….” Absolutely should remember this one! No sense screwing up the good ones while “learning”!

3/4hp —Jet 1236 ($899.99)... hmm… OR the HF 1236 copy ( Sale: $269.99 )...
Somehow I knew this was going to happen… ;-)
