    Ian, my thought is that there are a few rogue wheels - just like any tool - and I had one (actually two, both radius wheels from different sellers). In both cases, the back up service has been...

    Hi Mike

    The Tormek tool rest is quite substantial and very difficult to deflect. It occurred to me and I tried to make it do so. It would not. Using the tool rest on the Tormek is different to...

    Hi Pat

    What needs to be recalled is that my grinding set up uses the Tormek BGM-100 tool rests. These move the blade in a line parallel with the tool rest. If the wheel has hills and valleys, and...

    Hi Matthew

    Some have reported a slight concave, like mine, and others have not found this. I don't know what to conclude. I have had a report from the factory to say that the section between the...

  6. Follow up on CBN wheels for flat woodworkers

    A short while ago I posted a warning about purchasing the radiused CBN wheels for grinding flat blades (bench planes and bench chisels) as I had been experiencing difficulties obtaining a straight...

    There is something wrong there. I have used an A2 blade in a LA Jack ground at 25 degrees (never mind 30 degrees) on endgrain for many years and never experienced chipping. Recently this was replaced...

    Lowell

    One more idea - no, not a violin - what about resawing the boards into decent thickness veneer. You could make it go quite far that way.

    Drawer fronts.

    Use them with a sympathetic wood for the carcase, and make the drawer colour and figure a feature.

    Warning about "radiused" CBN wheels

    Hi Greg

    I know that I have written about this before, even posted pics. But I do not recall putting it up on my website.

    Hi Tony

    I agree that the retailers have a vested interest in the forum members accepting knock offs. Import duty and other tariffs raise the price of tools, such as LN and LV beyond what those in...

    John, assuming that the blade is seated correctly, all I can imagine is that the lever cap is too loose AND the adjuster screw is not in the forward rotation. One or other is likely not enough to...
