Re: Tormek: getting old wheel off

Hi John and all,

Here is my new wheel:

Note there is no water. In fact, you cannot use water, because bad things happen. Otherwise the wheel is guaranteed for the duration. There is no maintenance. There is no heat. Yayy.

I ordered my wheel from Wood Turners Wonders, proprietor Ken Rizza:

Mine is the wheel on the left, the cheaper one. There is a more expensive one, at $300, which gives you a side surface when you want to grind flat. The wheel I got is a perfect fit to the arbor, no play or slop. The wheel in action has no wobble, it runs true.

You’ll notice the grits are 200, 400,...,1000, 1200, for both wheels. You specify when ordering. Derek or David are better respondents on the different grits; for me, Tormek is a grinder, and 200 is perfect because it’s fast, even on Tormek.

I was impressed with Ken Rizza; he shipped the day I ordered or the next morning, and it got here in 2 days from Georgia. He also states if you want anything special done, to call him, and I get the definite impression he’ll get right to it.

I don’t know if there are other vendors offering CBN for Tormek.
