General Tormek Questions / Which will last longer, CBN vs Diamond
« on: August 10, 2020, 06:26:34 am »
Hello everyone.

I wonder which will last longer on the Tormek, CBN or Diamond.

Tormek said Diamond is better.

But Vadim(Knife Grinders) claimed CBN is better.

How do you think about that?

Of course I'll use it with ACC-150.

Is there any problem? :)

Mix Jende diamond emulsion into the PA-70. It works.

That strop is suede like Tormek honing wheel.

General Tormek Questions / The chip SG stone made
« on: November 19, 2019, 06:07:34 am »
I used SG-250. The dressing is done by diamond plate(#80 >>> #400). After that, I did honing on leather wheel.

But I could find chip on the edge. Could you tell me what's wrong?  ???

Knife Sharpening / Alternative FVB
« on: November 07, 2019, 12:27:48 pm »
I hope to introduce an alternative Frontal vertical base.

This solution was introduced at a small knife forum in Korea.

Surprisingly, this is the accessory of a JET wet sharpener.

General Tormek Questions / Diamond spray on leather wheel?
« on: July 07, 2019, 02:36:13 am »
Tormek leather wheel doesn't polish the high abrasive resistant steel like CPM-S110V.

How about using alcohol or water base diamond spray on leather wheel?(PA-70 + Diamond spray)

What micron do you think would be good for?

Knife Sharpening / The O-ring of knife jig

The O-ring of knife jig is broken. I think it's because 'dry'.

So I applied synthetic grease to it then wiped it.

I applied 5 micron diamond paste on the Tormek leather wheel.(Tormek paste is 3 micron)

But It doesn't polish the edge. What did I do wrong?

Knife Sharpening / Freehand on Tormek then benchstone

In this video, Korin use a large water cooled wheel for first step of repair/sharpening then sharpen it on the benchstone. Very impressive!

Is anybody here who uses Tormek like this?

Recently, I practice freehand benchstone sharpening. But I still need Tormek and Belt grinder because first step of sharpening takes the most time.

Knife Sharpening / Wearing the adjustable stop
« on: April 01, 2019, 02:57:11 am »
I sometimes have difficulty keeping the adjustable stop of SVM-45 parallel to the support. Especially when grinding near the tip.

Of course, I pushed hard it with my thumb.

Is it because the stop is worn?

Is there a good solution to keep the stop parallel?

Knife Sharpening / Diamond honing wheel

Yesterday, I applied Diamond paste to Tormek leather wheels and tested it for sharpening the high-vanadium steel knives.

CBN 400 grit >>> CBN 1000 grit >>> Diamond honing wheel 5 micron >>> Diamond honing wheel 0.5 micron

But the Diamond honing wheel didn't remove burr completely. So I had to use the honing wheel(PA-70) after using the Diamond honing wheel(0.5 micron).

PA-70 is real burr killer.

I think it's better to remove the burr first using the honing wheel(PA-70) before using the Diamond honing wheel.

General Tormek Questions / Price of ACC-150
« on: March 04, 2019, 04:42:24 am »
With my 10"(254.2mm) CBN wheel, T-8 needs 350~500ml of water and 13~19ml of ACC-150.

The amazon price of ACC-150(300ml) is 49.95 USD.

13ml/300ml = 23.08  >>> 23.08 / 49.95 USD = 2.16 USD
19ml/300ml= 15.79   >>> 15.79 / 49.95 USD = 3.16 USD

So, we have to pay 2~3 USD each time.
