Hi, my name is Vidar and I'm from Norway. I'm 58 years old and completely new to turning and milling. I acquired an Optimum 1000 lathe and a small milling machine three years ago. I worked in the oil service industry for 35 years, specializing in servicing and maintaining Blowout Preventers (BOPs), which can weigh up to 450 metric tons and require precise measurements. I came across this website while looking for tips on how to make a tool grinder for mainly end mills, as I have access to used and damaged ones from work and wanted to find a way to make use of them.
