General Tormek Questions / Re: Alternative ACC-150
« on: November 16, 2020, 12:21:26 pm »
In these days,  I have been 1 year using Tormek DF-250 and Tormek DE-250 with tap water only; without ACC-150 or another corrosion inhibitor.
At least, for knives every day from Tuesday to Saturday.

Both wheels are in perfect state.

The only point to consider during the work with this wheels is to dry them just after use.
This is my experience.

Regards

That's great!

But someone fails to manage and rusts the wheels.

Low pressure, high angle.

Somebody said Kool mist is not a perfect corrosion inhibitor. I'll test it soon.

We need ACC-150 to use Diamond wheels.

How about Kool Mist as alternative?

No idea... but just looking at their website, it looks like “Formula #78” would be the better option? (vs. the #77 you linked to).

https://koolmist.com/formula-78-for-light-duty

Rust prevention doesn’t seem to be the primary purpose, but the msds sheets, also on their website, should give you more info on if it’ll work.

Yes. #78 is for light duty, so maybe it's better option than #77.

I ordered #77 to use with belt grinder and it will be arrived in a few days. I still use ACC-150 with CBN wheels on the Tormek, but I thought it would be a good solution for someone looking for a cheaper alternative.

Yes
Vadim cant deliver a long time so i get Contact to the Manufactor and order my own.
after the people here in Europe saw my videos, the whole thing really got to me. So I decided, either completely or not at all and have all parts I use produced by myself and sell them with the CBN-Wheels in my shop. At the moment it is a little bit difficult to deliver to the USA because the freight costs have risen extremely due to covid-19. on top of that there is a different fee depending on the postcode. therefore i only send to the states after clarification of the freight costs by mail.

cheers Hanns

Thank you for answer.

Perhaps the difference is insignificant. Both are good abrasive, but I wonder if there are any researches.

Thanks Ken.

I respect Vadim, but I thought there was reasons why Tormek chose diamond.

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.
https://www.tormek.com/international/en/knowledge-inspiration/diamond-wheel-sharpening/

But Vadim(Knife Grinders) claimed CBN is better.
http://knifegrinders.com.au/11CBN.htm

How do you think about that?

IMHO, You have to use bench stone. The flatness is extremely important for clipper blade.
