2 birds with one piece of 1200g👍
« on: November 13, 2020, 08:12:26 pm »
So recently acquired my T4 and had a couple of minor irritations.
1: Developed a small chip on the edge of the SJ200.
Started out very gently and very slowly using an off cut of suede but that was taking forever.
So got some 1200g sandpaper and boom sorted it I'm minutes.
I've now done both edges.

2: The bump on honing wheel where the leather is joined was bugging me so again 1200g to the rescue.
Needless to say I'll be doing both these procedures with any new wheels in the future.
Cheers Pete

Interesting. I will prepare my 1200 grit sandpaper  :)

I got a few chips in the edge of mine when I was not using the TT-50 correctly. (The video on using the TT-50 taught me how to do that correctly.)


In any regard, I ignored the chips and it works fine.  No issue.


Kind regards,
Rich
