Re: Tormek: getting old wheel off

Hi Derek,

Excellent analysis. It certainly does seem that Tormek is hearing footsteps.

I would like to add one point on their new diamond wheels, which sell for $300-330 on Amazon, and which have a big side surface for flat grinding. In regard to the use of water, versus dry grinding, Tormek says the following:

“Included with every diamond wheel is 150 ml ACC-150 Anti-Corrosion Concentrate. Always use the concentrate in the water when sharpening with water to prevent rust on the grinding wheel. Add 10 ml of concentrate to 250 ml water (~ 4%). We recommend to always use water when sharpening with the diamond wheel, as it prolongs the life of the wheel and provides a finer surface. It is also possible to sharpen without water. ”

So they include enough anti-corrrosive for 15 sharpening episodes, and you can replace that bottle for $50. (five-oh). Or grind dry and take your chances on wearing out the wheel.

One other point: I find the CBN way faster than the original Tormek AlOx wheel, though the grit ratings are similar at 180 vs 200, and that is before you get to alloy steel.
