Quote from: darita on November 15, 2021, 10:57:35 PMI'm trying to use my Supergrind 2005 to do regrinds to finish on my guided knife sharpener. Problem is, I set up the Tormek using KG app, for a 16*dps, but when I check the angle on my other sharpeners, it comes up 17.5*. What am I doing wrong?

Quote from: darita on November 16, 2021, 01:54:58 AMThanks for the link. I should also say that I have a Goniometer that gives a good ballpark and it seems to agree with my findings. KG says their app doesn't work for Supergrind 2005.
Quote from: Ken S on November 16, 2021, 04:37:07 AMCB,My oldest Tormek is a T7, so I am guessing about the Supergrind 2005. Tormek used at least two housings in that general time period, one with a vertical front, and one with a slant front.
Quote from: tgbto on November 16, 2021, 12:10:47 PMI 100% agree with Ken and cbwx. I haven't figured out yet why people keep measuring to the housing when it's so much easier to measure to the wheel. A basic set of calipers will do the trick well within reasonable tolerances. Plus you can check your wheel at different points to see if you have a significant change in distances, and therefore need truing.It's convenient, it removes a few error sources, does not depend on how your machine compares to the one belonging to the calculator designer, does not require to find a spot on the housing in between sleeves and knobs and the like ... What's not to like
