anyone know a good (UK?) source for sandvik steels? I'm after a lump of 4mm thick.
It seems I can order a 250m x 360mm piece for about £70 - but only from Greece, or Lapland (!)
someone in the UK must stock it to buy online?
Thank you! I was mega pleased for a first attempt ! I have one of those ebay 4" wide bench belt grinders, was thinking i need to make a bevel jig but not sure? @h-dom how are you doing your grinding you have some awesome bevels on yours!Nice filework! Should come out well, what are you going to use to grind with?
@nicko868 I built my own 2x72 belt grinder (thread in homemade tools section) but before that I adapted a bench grinder but it was too flimsy. See how it goes with the 4" but if you enjoy the process I would get/build a 2". Doesn't have to be 2x72, could be 2x48 or even a 1x30 would work.
Are strops anything special or will an old leather belt do?
