    Great buy - Scanslib 150 wet grinder

    Left work 1/2hr early today so I could pop into the bank on the way home.
    Anyway, after paying suitable homage to the local parasite (read bank manager) I headed home, but on the way passed a house holding a garage sale.
    "Interesting' day to be holding a garage sale" sez I. So I stopped & wandered down the drive for a gander.
    Had a bit of a chat to the woman conducting the sale & as it turns out the family are in the process of moving overseas & must do so rapidly as hubby has been promoted/transferred.
    So - "everything must go fast".
    "Great" methinks, might be an opportunity for some haggling & such like if there's anything worth buying (thinking the odd axe head, hammer, saw, etc).
    Then my eyes lit up - low & behold there sat a lovely little Danish 'Scanslib 150' wet grinder.
    Had a chat with hubby as laid back as I could be (whilst bursting with anticipation).
    He wanted $150 for it. I had a look at it & picked a few little things (nothing really just nit picking of course).
    In the end, after some suitable haggling, I got it for $80.
    WhooHoo & Hot Damn - score of the year for me I reckon.
    These are normally a brilliant little tool grinder that usually go for around the $300 mark new.
    Have to invest in a few accessories for it but she works a beaut & should get a fair bit of duty with me.

    Anyway, here's a pic of one (not the one I bought but same same).

    That is a top score Bill, ive looked at this type of sharpening system for years but could never justify the expense.
    Walk softly ...... listen long

    Yeah I've also been in that same position - wanting one for a fair while but just not being able to justify the cost to buy a new one.
    However, I definitely wasn't going to pass this one up at that price.
    'Wrapt' is a fair description I reckon.
    As far as sharpening anyone's knives is concerned 1st I have to learn not to bugger me own ;-)
