Default Template sharpening

The template sharpener on Tom Whites power hone.
Whole process taking 1.5 minutes from a Carbalt™ graver blank to a completed and polished point.

Not sure. It should be displaying in the first post. Do you see a photo in first post or just a blank spot? If you see a photo there click on the arrow in the middle of the picture. I can see it at this end.

That is super fast. Thanks for the video Steve.
P.S. Is the grinder in a down draft box or how do you mitigate the dust?

Yes, it is in a box that is attached to the evacuation vent in the grinding room.

Hi Steve - I use the exact same setup but was wondering what grit wheel you use on the hone? It appears you only use the one wheel. I have been using the course wheel (I think it is 180) and then I switch to the 600. Maybe that is not necessary. Thanks!

Hi David, I'm using a 180 diamond lap in the video. I don't change back and forth but just leave it on for roughing and then go to the 2000 bench stone.

Steve,

What speed do you set your power hone to?

Fast as it will go. I believe that is 3000 rpm.

I use the same setup except I use a cheap ($89) Delta variable speed bench grinder. I like the polishing paper as opposed to the ceramic lap and diamond powder. Quicker and cleaner.

If anybody comes up with a way to use a template to grind a knife/flat with parallel sides please let us know. I shim the stone up with some copy paper to get it parallel to the graver when doing the sides but that just seems clunky.

Missed this one earlier. There is a Parallel Flat Template on the site. It grinds the flat in the traditional way with parallel sides. Here is a link to add one to your shopping cart
