I'm at Newbie status and can send PMs.
It seems to be dependent on a minimum number of posts by the sender.
It would be helpful for new members to know that limit.
I had never tried sending PMs earlier.
Click at the name of the person.
A window will open and you will find "Send PM"
General Tormek Questions / Re: T8 Recommendations?

I would prefer if you, as a moderator, would not step into the shoes of the marketing and sales persons.
Nice result. Congrat.
Could you be so kind to describe what you did with the Tormek for this task?

"It isn't rocket science surely?"
I agree. I would not mind loosing the theoretical capability for "grinding convex edges".
Two thoughts
I would not give my best knifes away to get it sharpened freehand, no matter how good this individual may be.
I would love to be proficient enough to do quick and dirty freehandsharpening for my simple knifes. Unfortunately, I'm not good enough.
On the other hand, I have plenty of time.

I'm afraid that I'm not familiar with your shaft alignment procedure. Could you be so kind to guide me to the place where it is described?
Thanks for showing your helpful solution.

I think you could move the blue line upwards, so that it lies fully inside of the black lines.
This would illustrate the fact that the grinding wheel cannot add material to the knive.
Changing a flat grind to a convex grind with a fatter edge always reduces the height of the knife.
Grinding the flat grind to a thinner edge maintaines the knife hight, however increases the bevel hight - as you already explained.

I would like to keep the double stop and make it adjustable.
One more question.
Do you know a person who successfully thinned out a kitchen knife with a Tormek?
This would be a starting point, at least.
I'm using a series of flat diamond flat whetstones for that purpose and at the end the task of providing a nice finish is due.

No, I meant, what are your facts? Is your single personal experience opinion supported by scientific data or by experince of multiple experienced users?
I hear what you are saying, and do not have any reason not to trust you.
I'm just asking for the many others, supporting your concern.
