General Tormek Questions / Re: Chisel length
October 22, 2010, 08:06:05 PM
bevel angle is 25 degrees.  I tried putting the chisel in the middle and squaring it up.  It worked ok but took a long time.  I had to work the high side by spending more time grinding it.  I notices that my wheel now has a high spot a little off centere of the middle.  I had trued it up yesterday for another tool.  What causes the grinding wheel to be high in the middle.  I seem to have to true it quite often.  Also I have a hard time getting rid of the streaks with the rough side of the grading wheel.

General Tormek Questions / Chisel length
October 22, 2010, 12:44:41 AM
What is the minimum length that a chisel must protude from the SE-76 Square Edge Jig in order to grind properly?  I seem to be unable to get a 90 degree grind by inserting the tool per instructions.  I was wondering if the the length has anything to do with that?

General Tormek Questions / Honing wheel wobble

Just purchased a T7.  Is it normal for the honing wheel to have a wobble?
Planer Blade Sharpening / grinding depth
December 17, 2007, 02:42:59 PM
A couple of weeks ago I purchased a T7.  I have a couple of questions regarding the set up of jointer/planer blades. First of all, when the manual talks about "cutting depth" what do they mean?  Is it the amount of steel removed from the edge of the blade?  Secondly, when doing the second planer blade, do you need to go through the entire set up again or can you just put the blade in at the setting form the first blade?  Just thought of a third question.  I have read in the posts that you can remove the limiters for doing longer planer blades.  How is this done?
Thanks, "Flyer"
