WolfY,

I don't see a problem. In my shop, a busy day might mean several edges, so XXX XXX XX would probably cover several days. :)

As for dates, they have already gone rogue. Look at reply dates before yesterday. (ex. June 16, 2016). Maybe Google Translate could redo them to proper Swedish. (another  :) )

All work and no play makes a dull Tormeker...........

International organizations recommend that a space be used, rather than a comma or period, to separate groups of digits.

So, for example, 75 thousand 4 hundred twenty-one and 45 hundredths is written as

75 421.45

or

75 421,45

depending on the preferences for the decimal separator.

Thanks Herman,

Looking backwards the thread, I can see I was not as clear as you with the explanation. Kind'a missed something ;)
Giving an advice is easy.
Accepting an advice is good.
Knowing which advice is worth adopting and which not, is a virtue.

The internationally recommended way to write that date would be

16 June 2016

or

16 Jun 2016.

The latter expression is used when it's preferred to have a uniform three-letter abbreviation for each month.

Has the script been removed from the first post? I cannot find any script. If I am an idiot, please explain where I can find the script for using the universal support height for setting grinding angle.

I think we somehow drifted away from the original question about maintaining a constant bevel angle using grinding wheels of different diameters. This is not a complicated procedure, using either Wootz' applet or kenjigs and Dutchman's tables. (One kenjig, cardboard works fine, for each wheel diameter.)

Did I miss something?

Wootz now sells it as a software package... so he probably removed the script.  You can find more information about it HERE.

Forum member RichColvin has an online calculator that sets the USB (by measuring to the wheel)... you can find that HERE.

(So... here here I guess). ::)

There are two approaches for setting grinding angle in the standard Universal Support position of grinding into the wheel:

The first originates from Ton Nillesen trigonometry for Tormek, and sets grinding angle by distance from the Universal Support bar to the grinding wheel, a free online calculator is available thanks to Rich Colvin: http://sharpeninghandbook.info/indexCalcProj.html
Kenjig also works on this principle.

The second is Knife Grinders' by vertical distance from the Universal Support bar to the Tormek housing: Computer Software >>
