Kalamazoo instead of bench grinder?
I've been thinking...for sharpening hollow ground things, like the rear surface of Japanese hair shears, for example, a bench grinder is often used, both for maintenance and at the factories.
Wouldn't a belt sander do the same job, if you just take any cover that may be there over a contact wheel?
Or is the radius too small(thereby digging too deep)?
Basically, does anybody find any great use for a bench grinder for sharpening/maintaining/finishing, or does a 1x42 belt sander pretty much cover the bases?
