Make your own linisher PDF Print E-mail
Written by GEOFF MERRYWEATHER   

linisher

Linishers seem to be expensive for what they are but can easily be made for a fraction of the purchase price. The budget using new parts for this project is around $400.

There are many variations on linishers‚ knife-makers and woodworkers have their own specific requirements and an advantage of making your own is it will suit your needs. There are few jobs where it does not get used. To work areas like knife handles between the guard and the rear pommel, a narrow front view is needed without a spindle in the way.

The front wheel needs to be rubber-coated or the abrasive particles will be shredded from the belt. The softer wheel, combined with the diagonal grooves, makes it work faster. There is a platen for flat surfaces and a section without the platen for the outside of pipes and similar work.
