I first have to apologize to everyone waiting for knives, will be put about a week behind as my speed control(vfd) fried on my:whistling: grinder. I will be ordering a new one today, but will have to wait for shipping and figuring out how to wire it. I ended up having to finish the tang of a knife with a angle grinder and a 1x42....not ideal lol.

She works for a privately owned accounting firm. When she is on maternity leave, she does not get paid, so while she is off, it is my duty to make as much as possible to support our bills and feed our children. She is ok with me being outside :)
