Visit to Saw & Tool Sharpening-Tralee-Co Kerry , Ireland

This was my annual, or bi-annual visit to Ireland.

Michael Lynch runs this grinding/sharpening business. He has been there for many years with his wife & family. He is a good man with a big Irish heart.I believe his speciality is mostly woodworking tools. Michael would not mind me saying that he bought most of his machines from my company. (FGP U.K.) I am lucky enough to supply him with most of his spare parts , grinding wheels, polishing wheels, diamond dressers and files etc. On this occasion I gave Michaelsome specialised training o another tool not used in woodworking. I also watched with interest his own particular way of sharpening carpenters chisels to achieve fantastic results.  Michael, as usual organised my b & b at Saint Martins guesthouse where I have stayed before, again the usual wonderful Irish hospitality.

I returned to Michael’s workshop on the morrow and Michael added to his order, needing more Diamond grinding wheels and files for tenon saws. We said our goodbye’s after during some coffee together and saying au revoir to “Michaels’ Mountains! ”

One more happy customer/friend and one happy Englishman !
