First off - I purchased a blade grinder this winter from someone on this site. It is a new Orogan. Nice looking and all but I am having trouble making it work - I like the wheel and all but .... I start with the blade - I need to slide it across the wheel, RIGHT? Then it seems like we are cutting into the black metal surface of the grinder. I think it should be longer to accomdate a blade lenght. Also how do you know your pulling this blade through straight? Also - anyone have a deal on new handheld Red Max Strato blowers. Looking at adding 4 or 5 to our crew. The old one's just needing to much work to keep running. I was quoted here 190.00 for 4 new ones. I think I could do better, let me know if I can.
