Thats a hell of a nice looking belt grinder.

Variable speed and all the trimmings too. I have an old school one that is missing a motor and belts, that you are inspiring me to clean up, paint, mount and use.

I got my workplace to buy that for me, I'm too poor to buy one for the house. They were going to scrap that Vidmar just behind the grinder, so I rescued it.

I'm jealous 'Rocker. I'd love one of those and a nice buffer wheel.

I don't get too fancy with knives, but apparently I have a fascination with them. Pitched a fit in a knife store when I was 9 or 10 about getting some survival knife. Parents for some reason wouldn't get it for me, so now since I've been able to, I pick up some at random. Finding ones I thought were cool....to be the most useless



Top one is a CRKT C/K dragon something or another. Waiting on a tek-lok belt clip so I can carry that one.
Next one is my Gerber Prodigy I use for camping related stuffs. I keep it in my camelbak when dirtbiking in the woods.
Followed by my Cold Steel Ti-Lite 6" with zytel handles. This gets used for opening mail. I've tried carrying it, but felt like a complete doofus with it in my pocket. I think I got it when I turned 18 or something. I lost the opening knub at some point, but the blade is weighted enough that with a quick flick of the wrist the blade will open up quite easily. You feel like a man opening envelopes with this one.
Last here I just picked up for cheap off of Amazon (10 or 12 bucks?). It has an assisted opening, and so far feels small enough for daily carrying. It's minimalist with no serration, liking how that's playing out so far.
