Hello everyone,
When I bought my last T4 I seem to remember that it came with a quick release knob for the honing wheel. I just got a second T4 yesterday and it is just a bolt. Was there supposed to be a quick release knob on the honing wheel?

Thank you and I apologize for such a basic question.
best wishes,
Steven

It normally just comes with a nut... (first one you got used maybe?)  You can buy a Quick Release one from some suppliers, for example...  https://advanced-machinery.myshopify.com/products/50-locking-knob-for-honing-wheel   ... (the ones from the larger machines fit).

Steven,

I purchased a quick release for my T4. I  also purchased a steel EZYlock nut. I would recommend you order both at the same time to save on shipping costs. Here is an EZYlock link:
