Re: Recommendations for grinder/wheel

Thanks Phil. Generally, I grind when about half the hollow is gone. I grind to the edge on Tormek, and raise a good burr, to make sure all the old wear is gone from the back. As for checking, that’s a natural on Tormek, cause you'll look a couple times early to find out if it’s getting close yet :) .

On the new rig, I will also grind to a burr, but will definitely keep track. Thanks.

Big problem I see is whether there is anything other than a Tormek which has as small a footprint as a Tormek. I hate to think about buying a new Tormek but space is in short supply here.
