video that CB sent me
« on: January 15, 2018, 04:55:49 pm »
CB sent me this instagram covering using the BGM _100 with a dry grinder and CBN wheel. It clearly demonstrates the process.

This procedure obviously works. However, my personal preference is to use the 180 grit CBN wheel directly in the Tormek. If I did not own a Tormek, I would go the BGM route. It provides the consistency and repeatability of the Tormek jigs, insuring that a minimum of steel is removed in sharpening.

Thanks, CB.

You're welcome... not my area of expertise, but thought it was a decent quick little video that looked like it showed it well.

I am pleased to know that I am not the only forum member looking around the Internet for new information.
Good find, CB.

I use my BGM-100 often for
  • shaping tools, especially new bowl gouges, and
  • sharpening tools that don’t sharpen well on the standard Tormek wheels (like carbide-tipped metal lathe tools)

It works marvelously for those things, and using the standard Tormek jigs is a real benefit.

Ken,

I subscribe on Instagram to posts by alexanderdesigns814.  He does great work, and I’ve always heard that we should listen to those who make great products over those who talk about it.
