    Before and After - Restoration

    I have a hobby belt sander from Peugeot and tryed it. It´s very dangerous for your knife. You have only ~3 seconds for thinning and then you must cool it down in water. i don´t recommend this method with high price knives. But with the sander it stays cool.

    I never tryed thinning a knife with a sander. But maybe it works to with a ~150 grit paper.

    Oh nice :) Do you have a before and after picture? If you have deep scratches start with lower grit (~240). If you practice this method two or three times you will get a 100% perfekt result.

    I use high quality waterproof sandpaper from Matador. One pice of each grit is enough for one knife.

    Wen 10" Sharpenening Wheel

    But with this small belt grinder the risk of overheating is very high? I have a "Peugeot EnergySand 200 ASP" with a much longer band and it´s very dangerous. Because of this problem i thin by hand like in my new video from today. PS: I always use a new band too

    Wen 10" Sharpenening Wheel

    Yes, $700 is lots of money. Do you have a link of this video? I´m interested in this thinning video. I don´t think it will work with the standard jigs because you can´t set the angle low enough. I´m also searching for a good thinning method too. Now i do thinnig by hand or with a cheap hobby...

    First Wa style handle

    I found this cheap hobby induction forge. It has 2800W. I think this is the minimum power for forging. Link: https://www.real.de/product/347311679/?kwd=&source=pla&sid=29717653&gclid=Cj0KCQjwjer4BRCZARIsABK4QeXIhxQUysTmThvGP_tO5V2SZoH2iZfhkKSUNfcm9d5riTeoZkxjuesaAmP5EALw_wcB

    What kind of Belt Grinders do you guys have?

    Peugeot EnergySand 200 ASP 550W. It´s not the most powerful but enough for making handles or something else.
