I hate this thing. It just sits there. It is a really good idea, just not executed well at all. Everything wobbles and nothing on it is flat, including the mount. I only use it the clean up severly nicked steel.

Are you really serious, you hate that Delta grinder? Nothing is flat and wobbles. How about the table it wobbles on, is it flat? Poorly executed? Did you ever sharpen a jointer or planer blade on yours? Mine does an excellent job. Sorry to disagree with you but if it just sits there, it isn't going to do you no good. You need to learn to use it properly. One more thing that is wrong, that white stone that comes with the grinder isn't the right grit to be sharpening severly nicked steel. So your still batting.000, don't you hate that? Mitch

Yes, I am aware that you build guitars, you not only build them , by the pictures you posted elsewhere on this forum , you build beautiful ones. They look so good. I admire your expertise. Going to ask you a qiestion, Corndog. If a guy doesn't play a guitar and doesn't read music etc, could he still make a good looking and sounding guitar successfully? I Would like to try and make one, just to do it. If you think I am foolish, lay the truth on me, I won't be offended at all. Good luck to you guy. Mitch Hey, check my gallery out to see some of my work.

Holy moly!!! I missed that question!!! Sorry...

Yes of course you can. It helps if you are a player though. Check out MIMF.com for some info. Be careful though...you may not be able to build just one. Highly addictive.

Good luck.

Now lets see, 1 part a day X 1000 days = just over 3 years

Temporary storage of small parts can be done using egg boxes. You could pay a lad to sort them for you.

You're right, The Toolbox Book is a cool book with lots of ideas. Some very innovative craftsmen.

There are some very inexpensive bin assemblies made in plastic that can be added on or stacked. Some of them have pull out bins that drop down in front and lock so you can access the bin. They can be pulled out to take to the bench. You could spend some time searching "bins". For example, here is a few at HF.

This thread kinda got away on me. What I meant was for odd tool storage, not parts...[although I REALLY need that too].
Thanx fer the input though!!!

My fault. Sorry.
