I wonder if digital angle gauge can be used some how to ensure exact angels ?
What do you mean by "exact"? By using the KS-123, the angle "exactly" becomes the value you choose on the scale. You have to trust that scale, but that also applies to the values given by the digital angle gauge.

I'm 78 and not and not nearly as quick as I once was.

Yes, I know that, I'm 84 and experience it every day  ;)

It was made unnecessarily difficult in the beginning, and I think some never got over that.
Totally agree. By "Simple adjustment", I meant the use of my tables. The KS-123 makes it even easier

I don't get much out of videos since I have a serious hearing disorder.

You may already be aware of this, but you can turn on the subtitles in the settings (gear symbol) and reduce the speed.

Yes, that's what we need if we don't want to remove the stone every time.
Now we have to wait for a producer who sees a profit in it.
It's strange that Tormek thinks otherwise.

Based on the film, you can have all kinds of suspicions of problems that may occur, but believe me, using the KS-123 is very convincing in its simplicity, precision and speed of use.
I even ordered the MB-102 now to be able to use the KS-123 with the honing wheel as well. But it's a pity that I also have to pay for that side piece for use with the side of diamond wheels.  I will only use the MB-102 as a vertical base, replacing the construction I have now.

What I wrote in a previous message New angle jig KS-123
I had the pleasure of testing the new angle setter KS-123. It is based on ideas from Perra and meets all expectations.
Quote from my conclusion:
It's a wonderful tool, well designed and beautifully realized. I will definitely start using it. So no more 'Dutchman's tables', kenjigs, spreadsheets or apps on smart phones or tablets. End of an era that began on April 14, 2014 with my publication of "Simple adjustment of the grinding angle". It took 10 years, but now it can be even simpler and more accurate.

Attached is my test report in PDF file.

But then it will have to be spread out over the surface before it dries imho. ;)

Quote from: CopperFish on March 11, 2024, 08:32:50 PMAnyone hear anything new on a Tormek version of this? Will they be releasing it?
At the invitation of Håkan Persson, Tormek's CEO at the time, I tested the 'new' anglesetter. See the report at https://forum.tormek.com/index.php?msg=38191
My verdict was not overwhelmingly positive. Furthermore, Håkan has since stepped down as CEO and has probably lost his interest in it.
In addition, and this is probably the most important thing, Perra has created a better design as presented in this thread.
That's why I think it's more likely. that Perra's design will be adopted and produced.

I really don't understand why a password would be needed.
What needs to be protected?
I have published the basis of this technique to offer help. Does that spreadsheet have other intentions?
