    @Todd I guess then having a knock off puts us in a good position. Having a Tormek set up for 250mm and aftermarket wheels mostly being 10” seems to be a problem, but putting the smaller diameter Tormek wheel on the Knockoff might actually work just fine!

    Nice video, couple tips I will offer:
    -The horizontal position for the rest is for using the strop that’s why he looks so awkward trying to strop on the top of the wheel behind the rest.
    -Tormek sells a stone grader which allows you to take the 220 stone to a much finer grade and back in just a few seconds.
    -tormek also sells a cheap knife angle gauge which really helps establishing your bevel angle.

    And for myself I tossed the ct honing compound in the garbage and use a tube of tormeks. (My ct honing compound was rancid).
