    Matthew

    The thinner body just did not feel comfortable in the hand, and made it harder to grip.

    Look at the thickness of the Kinshiro and the cheapie.

    mmm ..... David, there appears to be a big difference in our wheels. I wonder if this is the grit level (80 vs 180) or the make? My 180 creates a surface similar to the Tormek (which is 220).

    David, how high up the wheel are you grinding? Off the 180 grit I get just a little fine dust, which goes straight down. The guard is off my wheel. Is yours?

    To the OP ...

    Planing a square edge can be done with a slightly camber edge or a straight edge. As mentioned earlier, I prefer the latter for versatility, but I have used both.

    Reinis

    8" will create a shallower hollow. Put another way, the 6" wheel may create a deeper hollow that you might want.

    I thought that someone would comment on that. It is not typically ragged like that off the Tormek. It may be that the CBN wheel is new and still wearing in. It may also be (more likely)...
