Quote from: Ken S on June 28, 2022, 12:58:34 PM...My DWF is back on my T2. The DWC has been liberating. It really turbo charges the T2 and T4. The DW series wheels perform their designed function very well, waterless sharpening with the T2. If Tormek should decide to switch to the DF-200 for the T2, I can't imagine them including ACC in the package. Their design philosophy for the T2 is dry sharpening with the T2 always "at the ready".Ken
Quote from: Stickan on June 29, 2022, 02:38:49 PMHi,The diamond wheels for the Tormek T-2 do not have any diamonds on the side of the wheel. This new design came earlier this year and is similar to the wheels we offer to the T-3/T-4 machines in its design, except those have diamonds on the side of the wheel.Since the T-2 is strictly for chef's knives, there is no need for the side to be coated with diamonds.Best,Stig
QuoteThey changed the part which holds the jig, but the part is not available, so one would have to somehow rig using the new jig on older T-2s, i.e. figure out how to set the correct angle without having the new holder.
QuoteYes ,but you need to use the old pointer.It will feel a bit tight ,but if you just sand the pointers hole inside slightly it will work perfect.Or you leave it and let it get better with time.
Quote from: Ken S on July 11, 2022, 08:05:44 PMTormek describes itself as a company of "sharpening innovation", an accurate description. As such, I would expect changes from my early T2 (now called the "original version") and today's version. The main change is the knife holder. The revised holder lessens the possibility of scratching the knives. The original holder did this with post it notes. While this works, the protective pads of the new version are clearly an innovation.Since the start of this topic, I have had the opportunity of examining both versions of the knife holder. (The new version of the T2 holder is identical with the T1 holder.)The main castings are slightly different, as are the plastic holders. CB's photo in reply #7 shows these differences. The thick part of the original plastic holder next to the metal casting has been replaced by a protective pad.This change not only allows the addition of the protective pads, it also allows the maximum blade thickness to increase from 3.5mm to 5mm.The two knife holders are not quite directly interchangeable. By using the original pointer and plastic pointer holder, the new holder functions perfectly with the original T2. The parts for the new holder are available as a kit of parts for $89.95 USD. (part number 2480-07 Complete Jig) Is replacing an original holder worthwhile?Perhaps for someone who routinely sharpens expensive knives or knives thicker than 3.5mm. My collection of home kitchen knives doesn't fit either of these categories. I do; however, fit the third category. I am a self confessed Tormek junkie. For those whose knives fit in the original holder, and who sharpen few knives valuable enough to warrant using protective post it notes, they will continue to be satisfied with the original holder. The choice is yours.Ken
