Knife Sharpening / Re: TormekCalc - calculations in Excel spreadsheet

Thanks for sharing this, looks like a lot of effort was put into making it. I'm excited to try it out

I’ve been using something similar. It’s an oral syringe that included the blue extension tube attached in the second photo. It fits right in the AAC-150 bottle down to the plunger so it won’t accidentally fall in. Its easy to draw the specific mL while it rests on top like a medicine vial

These are some of the tools I use to measure pressure and sometimes consistency while sharpening. I also use bands in various circumstances to maintain a preset pressure against a device. The push and pull springs allow measuring in both grams of force and Newtons and with increments of 5 grams or .5 N. They are available in much higher resistances as well. They can be used with the blade while in free hand sharpening and through use of jigs. They can be used not only to preset a desired amount but held during the process to confirm consistent pressure
