Everything I've heard about the Quorn (There was a short story about the "Mightiest Quorn" in the 60's that I read which this always makes me thimpfk of), I will avoid it like the latest plague (whichever that might be THIS week). I really can't see why this woud be so complicate. 90% of what I need a grinder for is to sharpen drill bits. THe rest is a need for sharpening mill ends. There are occassionally something else. I also grind tool bits, but mostly that is done by hand.Hello Richard,
The Kennet is not to complicated to build. I got the castings from Model Engineering Services (Ivan Law). All the sliding surfaces were pre ground as I recall. Not sure if castings are still available. Have you looked at the Worden?
The Quorn on the other hand is a major undertaking and to be honest, unless one enjoys it as a project on its own, it would be difficult to justify. At the speed I work I recon it would take a couple of years to build another, with all the accessories. Hence my liking of the Kennet which is very simple and easy to set up, the Quorn is not, which is possibly why Professor Chaddock wrote a 128 page book to explain how to use it.
I think if I were starting again I may go down the Worden route with a few tweaks so that it is as capable as the Kennet.
