I thought there was another, but can't find it right now. But may have to be something to solve before you true another SJ stone... Also, I suggest chamfering the edges... just like done on a regular waterstone.
Quote from: Ken S on February 09, 2019, 11:49:43 AMThe hour run or soak time seems overkill to me, HOWEVER, I always leave my Tormek long enough for the stone to complete its absorbtion. I fill the water trough first and let the Tormek idle while placing the tool in the jig. Two minutes should do the trick, adding more water gradually as needed.Incidentally, in case you have not already encountered it, get a turkey baster and a couple empty plastic jars. (I use peanut butter jars.) The baster makes removing water from the trough "a treat" as our UK friends might say. This simple trick will eliminate most of your water spillage. It's an idea from another forum member.Ken
