Quote from: Ken S on July 16, 2020, 02:25:21 AM When I first developed the kenjig, I used the distance between the top of the universal support bar and the grinding wheel as my reference for determining the Distance. At the time, I used my T7. When I acquired my T4, I just made a new kenjig with the Distance groove cut for 200mm diameter. When I added my T8, I just used my original T8 kenjig as is.Some of the more recent programs use the distance between the top of the universal support bar and the frame instead of the grinding wheel. As such, the T7,T4, and T8 require separate measurements.My question, and it is just an honest question rather than advocating one method, is what is the reason for measuring using the frame rather than the grinding wheel?Ken

Quote from: Dutchman on July 16, 2020, 10:43:50 AM"another method" is not a "reason"! Why would you use a different measure if it only adds sources of error?
Quote from: wootz on July 16, 2020, 11:37:29 PM4-5 years ago when developing our software, we chose measuring to the Tormek housing rather than to the wheel for 2 reasons:- dropping a perpendicular from the universal support to the flat of the Tormek housing is more easy and accurate than to the wheel;- we use a depth probe for measuring the distance, and poking the calipers' depth probe into the grinding wheel damages the probe.And when later we developed our Frontal Vertical Base and extended our software to the Tormek honing wheel, felt wheels, and to paper wheels, we saw that ours was the right approach.It would be even more difficult to accurately measure a perpendicular to the honing wheel.All that said, without Dutchman's genius nothing would be possible. Even though prof. Verhoeven gave first formulas for setting grinding angle on Tormek, it was Ton Nillesen from Netherlands, who gave us all the detailed trigonometry of Tormek. We only computerised our version of it.

On this forum, I have found good ideas with elastic strap between the USB and the center of the stone....snip...Gilles
Quote from: cbwx34 on July 17, 2020, 02:44:05 PMYour posts should now come with a warning... like the ones in an infomercial. They are simply marketing. I doubt you can prove that it is "more accurate"... only that it works better for you. (But I digress...).
