Knife Sharpening / Re: Tormek Excel cal spread sheet
« on: May 30, 2021, 07:07:01 pm »
Thank you All for interesting informative replies, much appreciated.
I am very sorry for not explain myself more clearly, but I am not so technical, I tried to figured it out, but I thought I better ask, and it is a good thing that I have asked because I found out, thanks to your help that there is more setting than I thought, example the BevelCal tab,
This is a very great application, if I may say so.
What I was looking for was how to set the height of the USB after inputting the required values, Wheel diameter: Jig tool projecting length, that is from which points I should measure; USB to which point on the machine or on the stone. And should I use the yellow tab marked TUSB mm value? Or one below that?
I hope I got it right now.  :)
For sure I am going to study more what you all have explained to me and save all examples to study more in depth.
Thank you
Alf.
update, I discovered that I downloaded and was using an old version of the spread sheet. The new update version is better to understand. Thank you

Knife Sharpening / Tormek Excel cal spread sheet
« on: May 30, 2021, 12:21:16 pm »
Found and downloaded the Excel Cal spread sheet, which I am very grateful for having this opportunity to do so, but, I am having some difficulty to understand how to use it,  mainly how to set the height of the usb, which column should I use from the 4 rows I am seeing. ( photo ) to set my usb for the correct setting.
Any help or link how to use this spreadsheet is appreciated.
Thank you.
Alf.

Thank you Mike and Ken, much appreciate your feedback. One more question, can you test the sharpness of a  Wood Chisel with one of these ?
Another question What is the meaning "25 measurements per seconds with a resolution of 1 Gram"
I tried to look it up, but without success.
Thanks.

Hi, I am considering to buy a sharpness testing scale, I found and it seems that it is recommended, the PTA50: now there are at least 3 versions, the PTA50A;PTA50B and the PTA50C, Any recommendation which it is the best to buy and why
 in your opinion it is so, please?
Thank you.

Thank you Rick, very interesting.
Ken, I just did  that, first I finished the first blade from start to finish, then I did the second blade, just to be safe, until any new information is available. ;)
Thank you all.

Planer Blade Sharpening / sharping 2 Planer blades
« on: May 22, 2021, 09:22:38 pm »
HI, Sharping a set of 2 planer blades, I first start with the stone in coarse condition for fast removal and then as everybody I will make my stone in fine state for the final stage.
Now my question is, if I do both blades first with the coarse and then I will change to fine and do both blades, avoiding I have to change the condition of the stone 4 times.
Will I have any issues if I do this please or I should finish all the process on one blade and then do the same with the other? Thank you
