Quote from: criscass on April 01, 2020, 12:41:47 PMHi, I'm new to the forum. My name is Cristian and I live in Italy. I'm a cook/gardener/woodworker.I've bought the stone truing jig (tt-50) and carefully read all the instructions before using it.The jig works quite badly though.The head holding the diamond/copper point has quite a lot of play and I think this is the reason why it often vibrates so badly that I have to hold it down with my hands and take very light passages, less than 0.25mm. I've tried different feeding speeds and off course truing in both directions. My stone was not badly ovalized or unevenly consumed when i stater truing it. I eventually managed to true the stone but I had to old down the head often and I ended up consuming a lot of stone since it made bad marks every time it chattered. Is this normal or I got a faulty piece?

You only need to tie it moderately, enough to back up the diamond housing to it's riding platform and to allow you to easily rotate the knobs. This will drastically reduce the vibrations or eliminate them so you can take the time to true the stone even for 10 min if you need a nice surface....Ionut

I don't see a whole lot of play in the newer vs. older version.The "zip tie" fix works on the older version... not sure about the newer one?Quote from: Ken S on April 01, 2020, 05:42:45 PMFirst, contact support.KenCB,There are several reasons that recommending support has become my 'pat' answer. Primarily, I recommend contacting support because it works. The two Tormek support people I have worked with over the years both have extensive Tormek experience. They are career people, and Tormek makes only Tormek. They probably work on more Tormeks in a week than most of us see in a lifetime. They also have access to almost fifty years of Tormek resources.Beyond all of that, support is authorized to take action quickly when needed. How many times have we read posts where support has shipped new parts or replacement jigs or accessories?Too bad this has to be the 'pat' answer... and that support doesn't readily monitor their own forum eh?
Quote from: micha on April 09, 2020, 04:01:05 PM...the story continues......snip...My next experiment was a bit rigorous: I tapped the surface of the old insert with a hammer. This made the surface of the insert noticeably flatter. Trueing with that insert again showed way less vibration or chatter. I'll probably repeat that procedure again. I'd like to know how your TT-50 inserts look. Would be sure interesting to see if there's some sort of pattern.The first picture shows the old insert before being treated. In the next there is the old one after being flattened and the new insert on the right.
