Question for Tormek owners

Todd M
>Hi,

I just received my Tormek and have just set it up. I was wondering how true everyone's honing wheel turns. Out of the box, mine seems to wobble a bit. I know the directions say that the wheels may move laterally left and right a bit, but it doesn't affect performance. They say it shouldn't hardly move up and down at all. The grinding wheel meets these criteria, but not the hone wheel. Now, I haven't charged it with honing compound and used it yet, so maybe that 'sets' it more true (given that it's a piece of leather and not stone) when used. Just wondering if it is an issue I should be concerned about.

Thanks.
