>In an earlier post, Carole said, "As I see it, grinds are a very personal thing. What someone else considers the "perfect grind" for a given application may NOT be perfect for you." Her statements are true. It may not work for me, even though it's perfect for you.
Why is that so? If it works for you, why won't it work for me?
Is it because of the particular way we position the toolrest?
Is it because we don't slant the cutting edge quite the same way, or that we don't roll the tool handle enough?
Just thought it would be interesting to hear what others think.
