hollow grinding tormek

Jul 05, 2017 A third view is to establish the primary bevel with the Tormek SG grinding wheel and then add a micro bevel using the Tormek SJ polishing wheel. In my opinion, establishing the two reference points with a hollow grind to allow alignment of the blade on a flat stone does not reflect Tormek thinking

    How hollow is the hollow grind? - Tormek

    Jan 06, 2019 Hollow grinding goes back to the era when most home grinders were six inch (150mm) diameter. At that smaller diameter, the hollow is much more pronounced. This facilitates two point grinding. In my opinion, one can essentially ignore the hollow of a 250mm Tormek wheel

    Step #1 - CBN wheel for grinding - to the edge of the blade. It is warmer than a Tormek, but cool enough to hold in the hand, and much much faster in the grind. The final hollow is slightly deeper (8 radius vs 10 radius), and the upside of this is that a honing will last slightly longer

    Nov 09, 2011 Nov 10, 2011 The Tormek is a GREAT hollow grind machine and it will accurately grind a plane knife up to 13” long. However (for straight edges anyway), forget all the polishing hype and the leather wheel. If you read the Tormek book there is all this nonsense about polishing. The leather wheel has give of course and envelopes the edge when its pressed

    Sep 04, 2016 Sep 04, 2016 To get a hollow edge on a grinding wheel you have to be using a VERY stable position on the stone. Any forward/back motion of the blade on the wheel will result in a convex instead of a hollow. It's also possible to use the flat side of the wheel or to work at a diagonal to the wheel's face

    The hollow grind forces the edge to be at the right angle for resharpening. Many people don't like hollow grinds for good reason but once I used a hollow grind I'll never go back. I, personally, don't like stropping and don't have a good feel for it, but a stone sitting on my bench without needing a jig is pretty quick to keep the edge

    Mar 29, 2020 So best of both worlds - speed plus anything the Tormek can do. For those wanting to grind/sharpen lathe chisels, the Tormek is a poor choice as it works very slowly. A half-speed or full speed 8” bench grinder with CBN is the way to go. Most lathe chisels are HSS (M2 steel), and imperious to heat

    Jan 25, 2013 This is done with the fine side of the Tormek grading stone. (About 400 grit.) The results are a nice hollow ground bevel. Hollow ground is probably better than adding a micro bevel. Hollow grinding makes the next steps easier and the tool seems to stay sharp longer. Tormek suggests going on to hone the tool on the leather wheel and honing
