Making a stropping wheel 8” in diameter, 1 1/2” wide. Stropping surface is the perimeter rather than the face.
My plan is to “skive” the leather joint to preclude a potential edge catch as the wheel turns (on the lathe) while I’m stropping the blade’s edge.
Should I used a rather long and gradual skive and contact cement? Which contact cement would be best?
Thanks in advance.
Bill

Bill, I think it will be tough to skive that leather to where you won’t have a bump on your wheel. Have you looked at those8” knife sharpening wheels that you apply compound to? I use those and like em.I bought mine at a gun show but they look like an 8” MDF disc (but they do seem harder/more durable than MDF)

I made one and there was no problem with skiving the joint so that is was smooth. Used “Barge” contact
cement and it is going strong with about 1 yrs use on it. I use the green buffing compound on it.
