Mike,

This video is outstanding. The late Alan Batty was a real turning master. This would be an excellent teaching aid to play on a tablet near the lathe, going back and forth between watching and practicing.

I continue to be amazed with how many excellent video resources are available for turners, both free and for sale.

Mike,

Outside dimensions are 13” x 10 7/17” x 2 5/16”. Inside there is a compartment 2 1/4” x just over 10” for the bottle of compound and four corner pieces jutting out 2”.

These are very well made boxes and useful for safe storage or transport of the wheels. I discourage anyone from discarding them.

General Tormek Questions / Diamond Wheel Box Dimensions
« Last post by AKMike on Today at 12:53:23 am »
If anyone still has the Tormek box that their diamond wheel came in, could you please provide the external dimensions? I'm just guessing that they aren't the same as the stone wheel boxes.

Thanks,

Mike

General Tormek Questions / Re: hand pruner blades
« Last post by bisonbladesharpening on Today at 12:24:15 am »
I've found the tormek doesn't do well with curved blades
like pruners or food processors.  I use my lansky system for felcos
but they have to be taken off the frame.
Best Wishes

Knife Sharpening / Re: SVM 45 Custom

Great Idee but for my Solution is inconvenient to change the Site of the Knife.

You have to unscrew every Time the Bolt of one End to change the Ball Joint at 180°.

Why unscrew? The half turn of the thread (while flipping side) of the jig will not effect too much. You can also check the real angle on each side and decide to what direction make the half turn, compensating for the jig error.

Allan Batty's video on using a skew chisel is excellent, also.
