General Tormek Questions / Tormek as a vendor at the Woodworking show
« on: January 04, 2019, 01:44:08 pm »
Discovered Tormek will be a vendor at the 2019 woodworking shows. They will be in MA next week and I plan on attending. Two seminars as well talking about the Tormek and sharpening. http://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/new-england.html
Has anyone in the forum attended in years past? Was it worth the trip? Its about 80 miles one way from where I live.

General Tormek Questions / Stone turning toward you or away
« on: January 03, 2019, 01:18:12 am »
So I just received my T8 Dec 28th and spent many hours reading the material and watching You Tube. Finally went down cellar with my cheap stamped blade to sharpen what I thought I learned. Did not do a good job using the angle finder and chewed up the edge. But the real reason for writing was the knife jumped on me twice and scared the bejesus out of me. Enough so I stopped to go back and look at more videos. I don't like the idea of the wheel turning towards me and fully understand I need to get the correct pressure from both hands to stop the knife from jumping. I want to ask the forum are there folks out there who sharpen using the universal bar in a horizontal position with the wheel turning against me?
