    Default thickness-ing thing for grinder

    Here is my new surface/thicknessing set up. I am pretty happy with it so far.

    For now I am welding a thin push me pull me handle to what I am grinding. I need to figure out a good magnetic sled that I can make with the tools and stuff I have on hand.

    Thanks to Victor for showing me his surface grinder setup, and getting me off of my ass.

    Those magnets you get at hobby lobby are small enough to be counter sunk but quite powerful. Pretty sure they are called rare earth magnets and are available in sizes of around .250 to .30 diameter.
