Quote from: Ken S on January 29, 2018, 11:24:15 AMThe simplist possibility is to maximize the fine grading with the standard Tormek SG-250 wheel and the stone grader. After several years of using the stone grader, I tried applying it for a much longer time. I was amazed with how much smoother the stone's surface became. Using the stone grader need not be just an either 220 or 1000 grit choice. With more subtle use, it is capable of producing a range of gradations. I was not achieving the full fine grade. I suspect most users have that same situation. As a first possible solution, try using your stone grader for longer than a full minute. That, combined with lighter grinding pressure, may give you the finer grit you desire. The effect of the stone grader can last quite a while with flat blades like knives and chisels.

I have seen them on some webs sold as compatible for Tormek and many other clones. They are sold in those 2 grits, 800 and 4000. I have a King 4000 bench stone and I love it above any 6000+ stone, but the logic behind an 800 grit wheel goes beyond me - King stones have a reputation for being soft, and rightly so. I can imagine a Tormek wheel made of that material would be a nightmare to maintain true and would not last for long either.
