    I record this and just watched an episode last night from last week I think. They usually have a short segment where some sort of tool is put on the table and they all give goofy guesses as to what it is. Well, this episode he put the tool on the table and right away I knew what it was. The head of a Soot Eater. I think it's the first time I got any of them correct.

    TOH is the only house porn show I can bear to watch. But I saw some b-roll footage a few weeks ago of one of Tommy's guys using a belt sander to sharpen a chisel :(

    That's just a hack move.

    I also enjoy hometime. Its a little more like real life. They still build houses for people with insano "budgets", but they seen more normal. And who doesn't love to pretend to start a hand saw by pulling an imaginary pull cord and going "brr... brr.... BROOOOOMBRRbrr!"

    I got it right too :)

    Did notice one thing though, the shaft is different than mine. The one on TOH had a black, large diameter shaft, and mine has a small (1/2" or so) white (formerly) shaft... wow, that sounded dirty lol;lol

    Agreed.
    I have a friend that uses his belt sander to sharpen things like that. He didn't remove the plastic guard and melted it.
    Never ever thought of using a belt sander for sharpening metal. A bench top grinder works much better:)
