General Tormek Questions / Re: "Tweaking My Technique"
« on: April 04, 2018, 05:05:51 am »
I do a lot of online surfing for Tormek information. I found this yesterday. It covers some solid basic technique. I found the comment made by Shannon especially telling: " I guess I have avoided using it [the stone grader] too much for fear I would grind down the wheel prematurely." I think this statement typifies a very commonly held mistaken idea which hinders many Tormek users. Regular use of the stone grader causes no more than minimal stone wear, and is essential to good Tormek technique.

I GOT A WARNING from the above website saying it was unsafe. got the message fro PC MATIC.

very true Ken, and nothing is damaged in the process.

where would the "projection length" be measured from and to with a jig like that ? that is a good looking mod.

Good one CB

The o-ring is a band-aid fix. There must me a more elegant way to not have the knife jigs micro adjustment not move. Maybe my o-ring is to small, mine moves at the slightest movement across the rest. I tried cleaning it and making sure that it was dry (no oil) that did not do anything. Anybody have a good solution?

I have been using Teflon tape. usually 1 full wrap on the threads is enough. if you like it a little tighter, then add another wrap. works for me.

sounds like a good game plan for my 70 year old elbows.  :)

I'm still trying to find out where to download the app ! lol

UPDATE: I found their website and downloaded from there !

I just got email from Wolfgang and he said that indeed they do come with a bottle of ACC-150 with each wheel !
he had just found out today about that as well !  so, good news there.

hey, thanks for the heads up on that. I didn't see where it includes a free bottle with order of D wheels. I will check on that also.

it will be interesting to compare the differences of the DE stone vs. the SJ. I already have the SJ so now just waiting on the Diamond set (all 3). I also noticed the ACC-150 will not be available until June and Affinity nor Advanced Machinery have the part # or the price posted of the 150ml bottle. 1oz+25oz water. I wouldn't think you'd have to change the water that often, but definitely I will clean the water tank magnet after every use and then refill the water tank or pour the solution into a clean container and keep separate so I can use the SJ wheel if need be.

also I might add, is they will be available in July, and they do charge your card when you order.

I got the same email from Tormek (Advanced Machinery). I went ahead and ordered the 3 wheel package with free multi base and free shipping !
