Quote from: TireguyfromMA on April 26, 2023, 05:14:28 AMPerra, very impressive! You singlehandedly, and unknowingly, came up with the same tool that TORMEK was working on. One question about the function of this more precise angle setting tool. If I set it up to sharpen at 12dps on a 250mm wheel, can I then use it on the 215mm leather or composite honing wheel to accurately hone the same knife by just changing the wheel diameter setting?

Quote from: Perra on June 21, 2023, 12:53:47 PMSome thoughts after a while.If you want to achieve a certain edge angle, you have to take into account that as soon as you start sharpening, all the basic values change because you remove material from the knife, therefore the angle will not be the one you think you set from the beginning. Regardless of the method you use for the setup.How many of you usually take into account that the projection length changes while grinding? If I am going to fix a worn knife, I can easily reduce the height of the knife by 1mm, this gives an angle error of approx. 0.6 degrees. I sometimes redo the setting with a new projection length before I fine tune the last few times to get the angle I want. Or I set an angle of 17 degrees on a worn knife when I want a finished result of 18 degrees when I'm done.I have found that it is very quick to check and set new values with a tool like my "Knife Angle Setter" or perhaps Tormek's new jig. Just set a new projection length by, copy the knife+jig, to the setter and adjust the Usb height to the angle value you want. It takes no more than a couple of seconds! And it feels more hands on and that I have more control over the process than compare to other methods. The Setter becomes a more active part of the grinding process than my computer ever gone be. Sorry ThinkPad!I have received feedback on my tool from several friends who have received a copy and so far the feedback I have received is very positive. Great fun! And that should be positive for Tormek's new jig as well, because our tools work on the same principles. Almost!/Perra
Quote from: cbwx34 on June 21, 2023, 04:21:55 PMThe Projection Distance rarely changes in sharpening to any significance. The only time it does is if you're grinding out damage, or you incorrectly sharpen a very dull knife, by grinding one side until a burr is formed, (creating a noticeable offset), then flipping the blade over. (You can of course alter the PD in other ways, for example over-grinding at a higher angle.)
Quote from: cbwx34 on June 21, 2023, 04:21:55 PMThe main goal of using a calculator, and now your tool, is to overcome the deficiencies of the AngleMaster. (Which after years of denial, Tormek has apparently now admitted to.)

(Which after years of denial, Tormek has apparently now admitted to.) Is this really the case? Can you tell us where they have admitted this, please?I would like to know if I am misusing it or expecting too much from it.How inaccurate is it, really? and is it more inaccurate for knives or one sided bevels like chisels etc?I would appreciate any thoughts/infoDanny
