General Tormek Questions / Re: T2 Initial Review
January 31, 2018, 06:09:19 AM
Something I find interesting and have not seen discussed (from a commercial sharpening perspective)
I run a T8 from a van, and it's great. However I'm finding I'm working more and more freehand as the years progress..

One ongoing issue I have always had, is the need for my van to be virtually level, wherever I'm sharpening; to keep water from ending up all over the place. I may work up to 5-6 different sites in a day (residential and commercial)
A T2 could be an interesting prospect for a freehander potentially ?

Working freehand speeds up the per-knife process substantially, but not having to constantly be refilling, and levelling / dealing with water would be a HUGE advantage for us who work on the road..   assuming the wheel and motor are up to the job.

Any comments or thoughts appreciated.

When you have a question for a particular member, you will generally have better results sending the member a personal message. This is easily done. You can either click on the member's name from a post or from the member list. (Log in first.) On the left side of the member's page is a link to send a personal message. Many members do not check the forum extensively.

No doubt true... but I for one am interested to hear the answer if it does pop up on this thread..
just sayin'.
