BESS Edge-on-up cards
« on: September 20, 2022, 04:30:37 pm »
Today I also got an Edge-on-up BESS meter. I have a couple of question about that:

I see on YT videos when using the BESS Edge-on-up cards, writing down the measured value before and after grinding. Are these cards for sale?
(I can't find it on the internet)

I am happy with this measuring tool, because now I can see for the first time, which grinding results I have achieved (in a number of measurements it varied from 45 to 130 BESS)

If you mean these, based on the back of the card, guessing he had them printed for the business.



You might ask in the BESS forum?

Yes, this kind of ticket I mean.

So they can't be ordered as a product of BESS Edge-on-up. Then I will design and print them myself.

Thanks!

Wim,

One very clever use of BESS readings is to detect burr debris which is not fully removed. The Knife Grinders you tube just cited by CB in Knife Sharpening illustrates this.

Enjoy your new BESS tester. Mike Brubacher, the inventor and owner, is a very helpful, knowledgeable nice guy.

Ken,

That is also the main reason for me to purchase the BESS tester. Of course, I was also curious about where I stand with my grinding.
But I notice that my customers also find it special to see how sharp their knives are. Although they do not see the relativity of a measurement.
("Can you sharpen my knife again at 88 BESS," a customer asked me :).
