  • Tungsten sharpiner on the cheap

    For years I've just used a regular pedestal grinder with a fine wheel. Then I hired a kid (really good TIG welder) very finicky about how his tungsten was sharpened. After pricing "tungsten Sharpeners" holy crap they are expensive I put this together from harbor freight. Grinder P/N 94186 $35.00 and saw blade sharpening set P/N 98862 $10.00 He was happy. I drilled out the hole in the soft wheel and stuck it on the right side of the grinder, replacing the hard wheel. On the other side I just put the diamond wheel on the out side of the grinding wheel. and I left the side covers off. I works pretty good.
