Re: Question for CBN grinding wheel users?

E Phillip Smith

So are you using a jig for blades wider than the wheel?

"Because the face of the wheel is so flat and does not change shape, it is possible to set it up as per a Tormek, that is, square the blade holder to the wheel and run the blade along the face. This produces an even and smooth grind every time. "

I have never used a Tormek, but have used clamp on guides and do not like them. It's another gismo to fiddle with. Picture or jig would be appreciated.
