General Tormek Questions / Re: Bought a Planer

the 7/8 wide will fit the jig well. the length should not be a problem at all. you will probably have to remove the leather wheel tho, and that's no problem. Nice work for GrandDaughter.

Ken, lol.i know what you mean. i'll have 3 diamond wheels, SJ 250, and a SG 250, that will take up all my hooks and leave one on the machine.

I might also add that, I don't change the water using the SJ until I'm done for the day. it builds up a good swarf and that is constantly running over the wheel. I think this helps the sharpening process with the SJ.

Useful post, Grizz.

Ken
Thanks Ken, I consistently get readings from 125-175 BESS using the SJ. maybe one of the reasons is keeping it clean. it does get black from each knife I sharpen, hence the cleaning after each knife.

the planer I have has a 1/2" blade and it wont fit in the Tormek planer jig. it would be too dangerous to try to free hand a planer blade. new set only $25 bucks.

How many who have an SJ wheel have trued it? 

I have one and use it as the final treatment before stropping on leather for all my knives now.  But I have never trued it.  I use a Nagura stone to clean it, which it needs frequently, I think more due to the black marker that I use for checking angles than due to use.  It is at 249mm.  It just feels like the truing stone is too coarse to use on it. 

Rick
My SJ-250 had the spots and tiny holes at about 249, since then they have completely disappeared starting about 246 or so. I use the rust erasers and the nagura stone to clean the wheel after each knife I sharpen. I do use the TT-50 after 7-8 knives, it gets a little out of round. I have never used the stone grader on the SJ. never seen where I would need to. the wheel is now at 241mm and still works like a new one.

for those of us who have only one abrasive wheel, "the one that comes from the factory" I do not think there is a problem in letting it dry and keeping it on the machine permanently or is it?
shouldn't be a problem at all leaving it on the machine. just make sure you remove the water trough and clean it and maybe re-install it dry. should be good to go till the next sharpening session !  :)

Ken, I was wondering if the DE wheel leaves a smooth polished surface or a toothy surface ?

very good report Ken, it definitely is a learning curve.

I think this discussion will prove more informative once we can actually test things on real Multi Bases and diamond wheels.

Ken
did you ever receive the MB-100 ?

perhaps we can only use the outer third of the diamond wheel when using the side ?????
