Wheel Truing
« on: January 22, 2018, 10:30:56 pm »
I can't be the first person to notice this.  If I use the Tormek TT-50 Truing Tool it does a very nice job.  But when I spin the machine around and install the Tormek DBS-22 Drill Bit Sharpening Attachment the slide does not run parallel to the stone.  The solution of course is to install a diamond dresser in place of a drill bit.  The first one I tried was a diamond burr with a radius end which worked pretty well.  But Busy Bee Tools has what they call a 'Diamond Dresser With Handle' Part # D3744 which might work even better.  Note Tormek:  Maybe this is something you should look into.  Steve.

Hi,
Please check that your Universal support bar is straight. There should be no problem using it as you write.
Doing as you are writing, the stone will then be wrong trued if you should sharpen a chisel towards the stones direction after you have made your adjustment with your diamond dresser.

Best,
Stig
