Hello Mike. Welcome to our Do-It-Yourself Web Site and my Sharpening forum.

As I recently mentioned in a prior posting, buy either a Popular Mechanics or Popular Science magazine and the schools will be offered in the advertisements.

If your serious about learning this vocation, welcome aboard.

Sharpening can be a great "pocket change" vocation. As a sideline to a full time job or as a vocation after retirement.

Plan on purchasing several basic sharpening machines and adding more from your profits over time. Allow plenty of room for machines in your shop area. You'll need it.

And you'll need plenty of electrical power too. Plan on adding outlets and circuit breakers to an existing electrical panel or having an electrician add a seperate sub main panel for the shop and or working area. You'll need that too.

Like any business, plan on spending more then you take in for several years before the profit returns begin to show up.

Regards and Good Luck.
