I purchased a Tormek sharpener and was wondering if anyone here used one. I would like to know about your experiences and tips that you might have.
Thanks,
Bobby

Bobby,
Did you get a video with yours? It explains each jig setup one at a time. Once you use it, it gets pretty easy. Good tool to use, doesn't take off much metal and leaves a nice finish.

got the video

I got the video from them and one from another company....Sharp USA. Very helpful videos.... I am just learning some tricks on my own and was wondering about others.... I have built a lazy Susan to turn the grinder on so you don't have to pick it up and I have also built a automatic tensioner so you don't have to hold the chisel. It pulls just a little bit to automatically sharpen the blades slowly.

Bobby,
You'll have to post a picture of your tensioner. Sounds interesting.
