That's the only thing I know about too
Kudos on actually getting down to DO things!!!
The only slight downside I'd say, is the time it takes to change belts. It also cloggs up eventually, and needs regular cleaning...none real serious issues though!
Nope Danie, laser cutting or even better water jet cutting ain't cheating, especially not if it's your own design. The laser cutting service offered by the knife supplies dealer I'm using can never get it right, even when I indicate and stipulate dimensions with arrows. I've had so many let downs with the laser cutting service that I've given up on it
It will be a major time saver. It's not all that expensive either considering the time and grinding belts saved, maar nouja, one day when they can crack it I might give it a go again.
Until then it's brute force and blisters.
