10” split felt wheel
« on: September 02, 2020, 08:23:19 pm »
Greetings
I recently acquired a used T-7 and am in the process of refurbishing the unit. I’m looking for a split felt wheel rock hard or flint 10” for burr removal on serrated knives. I noticed some of you use a felt wheel for polishing could you direct me to a vendor. Thank you

Here are two (non US) companies: www.knifegrinders.com. au and https://www.mototechnica-shop.de/spezial-filzscheibe-filzrad-zum-messerschleifen-und-polieren-spez-gew-1-00-flint-hard-o-200-mm-oder-o-250-mm-abgeschraegt.html

Thank you for the link. I took three years of German in High school(Stone Age) and actually ordered some Tormek accessories from Germany so this will work for me as I can read it better than speak it.
I ordered a Mafell track saw and that is a thing of beauty.

I just read your post on bladeforum about the replacing the stop nut on the knife jig to compensate for blade curvature, brilliant! Thank you for the link. This T-7 dropped from the heavens to me for a pittance of $40.00,but The accessories are adding up fast.

A "Pivot Collar" of some sort, and one of the calculators to set the angle, is the best options for sharpening knives.... use them the mostest. :)

Durofelt in the US has a 6” wheel, but not a 10”:

They also have a new 10” felt wheel for “Tormeck” grinders:

I have their 6” knife edge felt wheel for bench grinders:

Very nice people to deal with.
