Quote from: Sir Amwell on August 18, 2023, 01:20:48 AMHi Dan. Ken is giving good advice. When I am doing a batch of knives I put them all at the same projection on my jigs for a given angle set up on grinding wheel on the T8. Set all those knives ready for honing. Then remove grind wheel and set up for honing on leather wheel with a FVB. Or your chosen honing method. The removal of the grinding wheel becomes less of an issue.You will need more jigs though. I have 10 of the old svm45 which makes it easy for volume sharpening and with those old adjustable jigs makes it easy to set them all to a predetermined projection measurement.If you are just occasional sharpening, what is the issue with removing the grinding wheel to enable you to hone?Am I missing something with your problem?You already seem to have solved the problem with your independent honing set up.

I find myself re-opening and re-fastening the wheels several times before it runs acceptable, but never as true as before.
Quote from: aquataur on August 19, 2023, 11:47:53 AMThe SG-200 (I have a T3), unlike the after-market other wheels I have, has a few tenth of a millimeter bore play and I have to put on thin layers of adhesive tape every time I mount it. And of course remove this once I use a different wheel.This is really sickening.If anybody has found a fix for this, I would be very thankful.

QuoteBlotters help to assure that the flange clamping pressure is evenly distributed on the wheel. (...) You must therefore use one clean new blotter for each mounting flange.(...)Never re-use old blotters when remounting wheels.
