Or you decide to start making your own. I’ll post pictures as I get further along.
Just make your own

If the Irish megalomaniac can't be bothered responding when you're trying to buy one of his machines, imagine the trouble you'll have when something goes wrong with it 🙄

Tried to buy from him a few years ago, ended up raiding the scrap pile and made a jig to hold the grinder at the correct angle

Might not be pretty, but it leaves a very sharp, flat ground surface that increases productivity by 37%, reduces fuel consumption by 42%, stays sharper 207% longer, and reduced the amount of money spent by 1000%👍

I tried to contact him about buying a sharpener as well a few years back but he never got back to me either.

Well I'm trying to build my own Valtra cos there's no dealers in South Wales. :)
Or I might just buy a S/H Ford 7610 with 25,000 hours on the clock, which will be a far better tractor anyway.:troll:

Does the machine have a special type of grinding wheel? I was always taught never to use the side of a grinding wheel.

Was that sharpener patent not sold to pottinger or someone like that? Is it available to buy from them. I'm sure I read something about that a few years ago
 
I take it that you read this thread and are aware of it?
There was a lot of bullpoo above , so I ignored it rather than getting into an argument , when men want to come on here and tell lies and start rumours , just let them off . For example there one guy posting above saying I wouldn’t sell him a machine and that I wouldn’t get back to him , he offered be a lot less money than the selling price and got annoyed when I didn’t accept his offer , so fools like that just get ignored. And then then that other guy started putting up pictures of his attempt to copy my machine , this is 100 % illegal, and the admins should have deleted it. I’ll say no more .

what is illegal about a guy building a machine to sharpen knives? goweil had a machine on the market for grinding their blades. You adapted the concept using a wet grinding wheel and making it so it could move in both directions.
the person above has posted a picture of a motor with a grinding wheel on a frame. Nought illegal about that. What have you patented on your machine that means the picture above is infringing your patent?

The 61st Doe Show - Starts 25th January 2021

The Doe Show has been a firm fixture in the agricultural, construction and groundcare industries calendars since 1960. Held during the first week of February every year, the Doe Show attracts huge crowds to our head office at Ulting, Essex and is by far the largest agricultural, construction and groundcare machinery dealer in the UK, possibly Europe.

Given the current pandemic and restrictions we find ourselves under, it would be irresponsible to hold our 2021 Doe Show in the physical sense. However, we are delighted to be able to bring the 61st Doe Show to our customers, albeit in a different way than we have over the past 60 years. Finding new ways of engaging with our customers excites us and we are...
