General Tormek Questions / Re: Which will last longer, CBN vs Diamond

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.

But Vadim(Knife Grinders) claimed CBN is better.

How do you think about that?

Rest In Peace.

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

Thank you all :)

General Tormek Questions / Can I use DWF-200 on the T-4 with water?

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

Is there any problem? :)

General Tormek Questions / Re: Do you need diamond honing compound?

I just bought a second Tormek leather wheel and conditioned the leather. 1µ paste should arrive soon. I want to see what results I get with this combination before I try anything finer. I plan on keeping the wheels in individual zip lock plastic bags and cleaning the knives thoroughly before and after each step.

What paste did you buy? I tested diamond lapping paste but it's useless for sharpening.

I am trying this one.

I have it, and applied on leather wheel. But it didn't work.

Sorry Sharpco,
but the procedure that described the friend Wootz: one leather wheel with 1 micron diamond paste and the second with green chrome plus 0.25 micron diamond paste does not satisfy you as a final result?

Hello Van.

Knife Grinders(Wootz) is great knife sharpening expert. I respect their skills, but now I'm developing my own technique.

Low BESS scores are not always good. The edge must have micro serration for slicing, so that it lasts long. yes, I think 1 micron is too fine :)

Interesting idea, Sharpco. Does the PA-70 provide a better base for the diamonds? Do the diamonds provide more aggressive cutting for the PA-70?

Ken

I don't apply it on the leather wheel yet. But they were mixed very well. It's still likely to work well on the tormek.

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

That strop is suede like Tormek honing wheel.

I think Tormek RM-533 is great thing. I use it for Tormek T-8, Viel belt grinder, hand sharpening, and flattening whetstones.

Knife Sharpening / Re: Aluminum bushing for 5/8" arbor
« on: November 21, 2019, 01:06:49 am »
I must be missing something.  38mm = 1.496", which may be functionally the same as 1.5".  But, you only need an OD of 15.9mm.  Why is it you cannot get this from the aluminum spacers outfit?  I think their cost would be prohibitive, but perhaps not if they cater to small orders. 

On the compatibility of aluminum spacers with an aluminum wheel, be careful of galling.  I would opt for a material OTHER than aluminum for the spacer if my wheel were aluminum. And It doesn't need to be super hard.  I agree that plastic spacers would work, consistent with meltzer1's comments.

Rick

Thanks Rick.

You're right. But I already aluminum bushing. The cost little bit high but I'm satisfying :)

Thank you all. I'll try to stay longer on the #1000 SG wheel(dressed by #400 diamond plate).

I am going to say that the angle is too sharp, so the blade is so thin it chipped from a faulty inclusion.

It's about 17 dps. I think it was not too low.
