Quote from: jvh on July 26, 2020, 07:41:15 PMHello everyone,let me introduce AngleJig, another way how to set your Tormek for grinding. Basic idea is simple - the angle formed by the tangents between the wheel and the universal support can be used for settings USB's heights. Angle t (tau) can be measured directly with suitable angle meter or indirectly with an inclinometer. Fixed jigs (e.g. plywood triangles) can be used with an angle ruler for direct setting too, it is similar as KenJig, but probably not so fast.According to the performed tests the accuracy of setting is high, the large distance between the measuring points is very helpful. Setting with inclinometer is very easy, quick and universal for me and requires steel bar (magnetic) with stop pin only.All calculations will be included in the new version of TormekCalc2, the functionality is ready, I'm still considering the look of the user interface...For more information see pictures.jvh

I have checked the numerical accuracy of your TormekCalc by calculating the height of the USB above Tormek housing and also the distance between the USB and the wheel surface. I can confirm that your results are identical with my results with an accuracy of 0.001 mm. Congratulations! Jan
Quote from: cbwx34 on August 03, 2020, 03:00:07 PMLet the testing begin... I spent the weekend testing "AngleJig". After an initial setback of figuring out (thanks jvh) my digital angle cube needed re-calibrating I otherwise found the procedure accurate, and easy to set up and use.So, no other problems... works well. Removing a decimal point i.e. measuring to the nearest tenth puts results within a degree, and makes setting quick and easy. (If you're into decimal angle settings, I'm not sure this is the route I'd take... in theory it'll work, but practically may not).I plan on making it my primary setup method for a while... see where it takes me.And can I just say, I miss this... a lot...

Your Angle Jig makes me aware of an important overlooked consideration. A well designed Tormek bench for critical work should be accurately level. Good periodic routine maintenance should probably also include checking levelness....
Quote from: cbwx34 on October 18, 2020, 11:51:09 PMAnyway, I've tested this both by using the "AngleJig" to set the angle, then comparing the results with other methods, and also doing the reverse (setting with another method and then checking with "Angle Jig"). I'm more than pleased with the results... consistently within a degree (usually only "off" by around .2°-.5°), and once I got use to doing it, was as quick any other method.So, my .02... give it go!!!

Quote from: Ken S on October 19, 2020, 08:37:55 AMLike you, I value simplicity. My kenjig is probably the least sophisticated of all of our bevel set up techniques and tools. It is designed to allow a casual or inexperienced user to obtain accurate, repeatable results without tedious measuring. Coincidentally, it can assist a busy sharpener switch back and forth between knife sizes. While the tool itself is quite simple, it is based on Dutchman's tables.Ken
