TROUGH HEIGHT COMPARISON

On my T7, there is 129cm from the left trough’s bottom to the shaft’s centreline.

With 4 hockey pucks, there is 146cm from the right trough’s bottom to the shaft’s centreline.
   
Sp the right trough (shimmed with 4 hockey pucks) is about 17 cm lower than the left (factory) side. However, it works fine or me.
Sorry, some clarification to a layman:
Is the trough you use on the right always T7?
To cancel the difference in height between the two troughs, couldn't you use a third hochey disc or one divided into two parts?
Thanks

Obviously! you always try to learn from those who know more than you. Then everyone makes their own choices and considerations. Everything is constantly evolving, in every sector.

In 2018 Knife Grinders I recommend using this sequence on Tormek leather wheels:
- leather wheel with Tormek paste composite
- 1 micron composite leather wheel (with angle increment)
- leather wheel with chromium oxide composite + 0.25 micron
using THK diamond pastes (which I still use)
Next, he recommended using the rock hard felt wheel with diamond spray and an alcohol based suspension as you can see on his site, and it's for sale.

indeed!!! with these types of inexpensive microscopes you cannot expect "depth of field" for that purpose there are high quality, high priced dedicated microscopes. It all depends on the purpose of use and if the "game is worth the candle"

There are two ways of focusing:
Either raise and lower the whole group or for more accurate focus you can use the central knob below the display. To have a decent brightness, I installed circular LEDs such as those used for high-end microscopes. The stability is optimal certainly superior to portable ones. The whole block is very stable for my use. A modification that I have implemented is to paint the chrome base with matte black to avoid annoying reflections for me.
Surely it is as You assert. These are photos taken on the fly without any software, which I don't have. With more time I will surely be able to post better photos. This is what I have and use, surely there are better miroscopes ...

Thanks van. What are we looking at, I mean what stone grades etc.
Also how did you snap the pics?
These are photos of the bevel of a knife yet to be sharpened.
The inexpensive microscope I use has an SD card for capturing both photos and videos. By connecting the microscope to the computer via a usb cable you can transfer the whole thing or use the computer monitor for a larger view

Here are some shots from my microscope.
I hope they are satisfactory for the purpose. (RESIZE)

It being understood that it is always an economic microscope.
I can assure you that his "dirty" job does.
Maybe I was lucky but I have not encountered major problems, there are two models, one with a rechargeable battery and one without a battery.
If I can, soon, I'll post exhaustive photos of the various degrees of resolution of the images.
There are many videos about it on YouTube used for other application methodologies but they give valuable help.

Sorry, but from the photo I don't understand what problem you want to point out,
Unfortunately I am unable to post a photo of myself.

No worries, a few people have commented that the stand isnt bolted square so the microscope isnt square to the object, the picture is the knuckle joint where the microscope connects to the base, its clearly drilled badly.

I have not encountered any "relevant" problems,
I just added a circular light to improve the brightness.
Of course it still remains a cheap microscope, but it does its job.

I have tried to use portable microscopes, but they have difficulty keeping the various blades in focus. Lately I have been using a microscope, for me, very valid at a cheap price that can be purchased on Chinese sites. It could be a good solution.
