Cool Tools for DIY—Terratek Bench Grinder

I bought a new hand grinder. It is a cool power tool with grinding wheels. You may wonder why the sudden interest in DIY fix-it projects? I’m curtailing my ahem spending/stocking of inventory  (my favorite part of picking) In place of spending I’m now fixing (grinding the rust off a tool or buffing it on 🙂 the items that are languishing in our office/stockroom/garden shed. Good idea huh? Anyway here is a picture of my power tool, it’s called Terratek Bench Grinder.  One side has a grinder and one side has a wire brush. I bought the wire brush as an add on. I’m not sure why both sides have the grinder. Probably a real ‘fixer’ would know the answer to that question.

My picka sista partner and I bought a A LOT of vintage knives a few months ago and now they are on sale in our shop in District. I’m not talking about a wussy butter knife but ‘don’t mess with me bro knives’ On first look we thought we scored big but that was BEFORE we realized that our lovely knife collection was very very rusty. I mean really rusty — like they had been languishing in the depths of the Puget Sound for years. My partner Karen tried every trick in the book in order to clean the knives. However the knives were her job so I didn’t give it much thought . . .

And here is the BEFORE picture of our rusty (already cleaned by Karen) knives. Some of them have very cool cases and look at the bone handle on the first knife in the picture.

So now most of the knives are on sale in our store in Georgetown, Seattle at District. They are in a lovely case ugly case with God awful plexi glass because yours truly dropped a gas pump handle on the case yesterday when rearranging the store. Sigh. Crash. Lots of splintered glass and twice as long cleaning up as normal.
