    I built one using a motor from an old bread machine. Bought a glass platen for a Worksharp. There are plans for similar devices online. There's a good one on Instructables.

    I've known of people using treadmill motors and controls to make variable speed belt grinders. Never heard of it for a table saw. Doesn't mean it won't work.

    I have used a belt sander on irons and chisels in bad shape. Generally OK results as long as you know you will have to do more work by hand. A ceramic belt helps as it won't wear out as quickly as...

    That is a very good site. Lots of people in the shaving world purchase through them. If you want something cheaper, Woodcraft sells knots. They are OK, but not premium.
