General Tormek Questions / Re: Wheel nut "Freezes"
« on: December 04, 2012, 12:56:02 am »
How are you trying to remove it?  Are you trying to simply turn the nut by itself?  I find it's far easier if you keep the assembly from turning by holding onto the honing wheel with one hand, and turning the grinding wheel - not the nut - in the opposite direction with the other hand.  The nut will come loose on it's own.

Thats wot I do.

I haven't used any yet but I'd be interested in a few packets of them.

Very nice!!! I want one of their hatchets but for now I only have this one from Suomi.

Also if anyone wants a Swedish hatchet for around teh cost of a jig theres this. :)

Yeah the machine was really expensive(I got mine at a 10% discount due to an error in a sales flyer but it was still over $600 USD...) That said the Swedish origin and outstanding quality makes it worth every penny.

Well I mainly got this for knives so I know I need the 2 jigs for those soon. Also I'm going over to a boxmakers shop soon to do chisels so I'll be getting so experience.  :D

I'm a hobbyist and after years of deciding I went with the T7. Not only does it have more accessories but its made of metal(instead of polymer) and will probably last forever.

I never thought about using to much oil... Thanks for the tip. Also I missed out on getting a free turntable when I bought it as the offer was for last month. I'll look into getting it after I get a few jigs.

I used to have an account here but it seems to be gone.  :'(

Anyhoo I just got a Tormek T7 and would post the unboxing pics but i guess everyone here has there own so a few pics will do.

I got a few questions what sewing machine oil should I use? Can anyone recommend a Swedish/European or USA made one? Also would Ballistol work?

Should I use tap water for the wheel or purified/bottled water?
