Default SharpTools saves the day

And a minor vent
With the lathe, comes lathe tools, and even though I have a tormek, and have had it for geez, has it really been 12 years? Wow
So i ordered up some accessories because, that thing has had all my straight blades nice for 12 years now. Perfect opportunity to "upgrade" so to speak
And then I say to myself, and the last time you lubed the bearing / gasket things in there, oh wait. You haven't.
Perfect opportunity to take it apart, clean, redo the stand and area it sits in.
Its the nesting thing. You have a baby coming, you get the room ready.
And I broke the wheel.
GAAAAAA!
I tried to be gentle, I promise. No dice.
So now Jeff gets to sell me a new wheel. And shaft while I'm at it (realistically, having seen the "wet" end of this one, its time anyway. Dang. There goes my Pepsi money.

Randy,

Out of curiousity, did you order another of the stock wheels, or did you go for the SB-250 (the black silicone one)? The literature says it grinds faster, but I can't find any reviews. I wouldn't mind tuning up my turning tools a bit faster.

Mike

Tempted, but I went with the standard. It is very rare that I need to move much material, and decided that's what the bench grinder would do if I ever needed it. Until then, it just sits.
