Front Vertical Base VVB-100 for Tormek
« on: March 20, 2020, 11:01:33 pm »
Just giving the heads-up to those in Europe that Wolfknives Feines Werkzeug & Handwerk, based in Germany, are now manufacturing and selling their own FVB for €79 - see product description here (in German).

It probably won't be compatible with the Knife Grinders software but will be easier enough to configure with TormekCalc developed by jvh

Looks like that German company also sells their version of a US-430, but on steroids:

Product information "Long universal support WS-500 for Tormek T-8 & T4"
The long universal support WS-500 developed by us is a further extended universal support for the two US-105 and US-430 offered by Tormek. The slightly longer support is particularly helpful for grinding work with very long blades or wide blade edges. This long support shows its full potential in connection with our VVB-100, the front vertical base. The screws on the support allow a precise fine adjustment of the cutting edge angle and the grinding depth.

The long universal support WS-500 is suitable for the Tormek T-8 / T-7 / T-4 / T-3 and earlier Tormek models. The length of the upper grinding guide is 500 mm, the complete height is 220 mm.

It can be positioned in the following positions :

Vertical for grinding against the cutting edge.
Horizontal for grinding with the cutting edge.
Horizontal on the side of the leather honing wheel for peeling.
