Hi Rick,
First off, sorry, no, I'm in the wrong country... BUT, if you're looking for them then I assume that you are getting serious about building one. I guess that you have looked at the other two main contenders (the Quorn and the Wardon (spelling?)) and decided on the Stent for one reason or another. I would be interested to know if you made that decision for any specific functional reasons, or just that the Quorn looks too much like hard work for what it delivers, or ...?
Looking at pictures of Stents on web sites and in various issues of Model Engineer's Workshop seems to show up a variety of castings - some appear to have a very professional base, others less so, and some almost not at all. Have you purchased the drawings/instructions from England as part of the decision-making process? I like the look of the Stent myself, but I've never seen an objective comparison between the several possible machines.
Regards,
Roger

Hi Roger, I am interested in a functional tool that is capable of sharpening end mills and odds and ends, nothing more, I do not want to build one as a "project" or "experience". The Quorn, I believe, is more work than what is needed. A beautiful piece of equipment, yes, but I don't need it. I have not seen the drawings but I have spent some time looking at the pictures. I believe I can envision most of the process for each and the Stent comes out on top for my purposes. I course I can always be wrong! Rick

Hi Rick,
Good luck if you do go ahead with it. I, and probably plenty of others, would be very interested in hearing your impressions of the castings, drawings, etc.
Regards,
Roger
