Not sure how long I had it but it was a LOT of sharpening.
Thanks for the reply. I actually considered adding a drop of bleach to my mixture to keep it from going bad, but I reconsidered and decided to post here first. There are probably other things that could be added to do the same thing, however I'm wondering if it is even necessary. I do know that the solution does smell a bit foul, but I don't know if that's the chemicals and metals or biology that I'm smelling.
I'm not a chemist, but bleach is an oxidizer so I believe it might accelerate rusting. Someone who is a chemist or metallurgist may correct me though.

Quote from: Ken S on June 23, 2023, 11:31:50 PMYour post is slightly confusing. When you place your 45mm felt wheel on the shaft, are the threads too far away for the nut to screw down or is your shaft too short for your felt wheel?
If the shaft is too long, fender washers with 12 mm bore hole can fill in the space at minimal cost. These often come in three packs.
Actually just the opposite. Not enough threads are exposed to get a bite because the shaft length is the same length as the wheel is wide.

Forgive the angle of the picture, as I was trying to show all the settings on the AngleMaster as well as contact to the stone and blade.
The blade is tapered from spine to edge... the AngleMaster doesn't account for that.

Does that preclude my ability to use CalCapp to figure out top of USB to wheel surface calculation?
Thank you. Just what I needed to know. I thought I really blew it.
No... if you measure directly to the wheel to set the USB height, the horizontal (and vertical) distance doesn't factor in.
