    Thanks Noah. I thought of the 3x, but moved on to considering the CBN option based on Derek's very helpful comments. CBN wheels are made in lots of formats, including specifically for side/face...

    It seems that grading of CBN wheels is a bit of a hit and miss job - one UK supplier of turning tools that I spoke to today really didn't want to talk in terms of grit sizes at all - just extra fine,...

    Ta George, add Bruce and Bridger's observations and it's pretty clear that a cheapest of the cheap bench grinder would not be a good choice. Need to buy a bench grinder anyway, as i've been getting...

    Thinking aloud to share some more on possible options for flat grinding bevels for anybody that may have an interest. Think there's several more or less DIY options that may be runners since there's...

    Hi Ralph. Seems like a lot of your issue may be that the S315 fence extrusion doesn't have slots for T nuts.

    I'm sure the Minimax guys have a way of doing this (i run a Hammer K3), but two fairly...

    I've just started my Roubo, and also have plumped for the criss cross as i have a bad back. Can't comment on performance, but it looks excellent. (see videos below) Advantages of a leg vise include...

    It's very possible David. (the glowing comments)

    The CBN looks very interesting. The big question for me presuming it does the business is the life - it's expensive enough at around €180 per...

    That seems to be about the choice David - with biting the bullet on hollow ground bevels and reverting to a bench grinder based solution as the other feasible route. Perhaps i've been lucky, but the...

    One problem is that we really only find out the capability of the various methods when we try them - despite many being pushed as universal sharpening solutions.

    That's the way my train of thought is headed too - but so far I'd rather stick with the flat bevels. Already have a variable speed Bosch belt sander which doesn't get a lot of use on other stuff.

    I can agree about the fast burning scenarios - but despite this as...

    That's a fair question too Bridger. Maybe the reality is just that chisels in general walk a fine line between edge failure and optimum performance.

    The A3 31 may be a bit stiffer than the 410 David - but either way it may not matter so much. Depends on what you need of it.

    Bear in mind too that I was measuring the height variation between...
