Quote from: bgtklbx on June 20, 2020, 01:07:29 AMI'm using a T8 with the standard stone and a half speed 8 inch grinder with 2 ten inch slotted paper wheels. Every time I get a knife really nice and sharp (105-150) on a BESS tester and then get the idea to finish up with a rock hard felt wheel used on the Tormek at slow speed with 1micron diamond spray my edge goes south really bad. (280) BESS. So I'm done with that thing forever. Done finished.I can bring the numbers back with the paper wheels. Anyone have an idea why the felt wheel dulls the edge? I like to know if possible what happens, even if I'll never use it again. I've tried exact angle and higher and lower. Btw I use the knife grinders software with angle supports on the paper wheels and the frontal vertical base for the felt. To add insult to injury the felt polished a "tiger stripe" into the mirror finish which the paper polished back out.
