To complete the story- In addition to getting the stone to run reasonably true, I built a rest that befits this fine machine:cool 2:. As with many things we do, it was built with materials on hand. No credit card was harmed in the production of this content. 20180706_120158.jpg 20180706_120254.jpg

Good job. Some of the tool rests that come on these grinders are so darn flimsy they are a joke.

I agree with that. I don't know why the manufacturers can't devise better paterns for the grinders.

Do you perhaps have any drawings/measurements for you rest and what is your grinder size? Don't feel obligated to give any of it if you don't want to.
Good day to you

Sorry, no prints. Built quite "on the fly". It is a 6" grinder, and the only thing I was concerned with was that I could get the rest to 'horizontal and tangent' to a stone that was nearly wore out, while making sure the vertical member remained leaning OUT away from the stone.
Thanks, all. I enjoyed the build, it works SOOO much better than the original. The ones I saw for sale were either too spendy, or too dang complicated to spew grindings all over:cool 2:
