I bought one of these many years ago with all the talk of scary sharp tools I thought I might share it with you .It’s basically a sixteen inch horizontal wheel flooded when turned constantly with honing oil works great do they have such a thing where you are it’s called a Denford Viceroy sharpedge works great with chisels planer blades and also when I make a new attachment planer blades for thicknessers etc.I would welcome your comments good or bad as you wish.Alistair

Thanks jim I have been given some pretty chewed up wood chisels and brought them back to better than new with this it works fast too. In my opinion a finer better finish than my tormek does this syetem is hard to beat as the tool never heats up and sharpens like magic Take care my dear friend.Alistar p.s congratulations on your record 30.000 posts

Are the wheels interchangeable, meaning can you use different grades of coarseness?

Never seen one of these – thanks for sharing. Looks like that big flat surface would be nice to work on.

It looks like it might play 33 1/3 records, but it also looks like a heafty sharpening wheel. Does it turn slow?
With oil running on it it should last forever and never heat the edge.

Jim the wheels are ,as said sixteen inch by about three inches completely interchangable but I only hyave one wheel for mine.It turns about the same speed LOL as a record player not too fast and I use cutting oil it disperses through the wheel quite quickly always leaving a kind of tide of oil being swept along and is constantly fed from amecahnical pump vi a tube with holes in it over the wheel.When I bought mine at an auction of woodworking machines it was stated as having no motor or pump .I thought I can fix that.Imagine my delight when I finally got it home and found the small motor tucked up with a pump underneath.There was a large cavity for the oil container and it looked as if it had a motorectomy.It cuts beautifully and is very safe even a child could use it thanks hope you like the prinicipal at least this is better than the tormek with a much bigger capacity. and cuts wonderfully well.Alistair

Sure looks like a neat system, large grinding surface, large tool rest, table height, etc. That looks totally industrial quality.
