So I will keep this one as the  stone is better than the one I have.

Real good for fast stock removal,  also if the stone is round.

I haven't used it yet,  the stone is better than the one I had. old one had a chip out of it and missing the seat.. Bearings are better too.I made a pattern form the seat, bang a few up this winter.

I have a similar looking one that folds flat (minus stone), by removing 4 bolts,   Keen Kutter.

I don't know if this one and the old one can fold? but taking 4 bolts out  it's 1/2 taken apart!My son was over today, I'm trying to pass on the metalshaping  skills. He made this copy of the metal seat. Sun shining thru the window leave a odd pattern. We used a semi-rusty metal to give it the vintage look.
