I am at a maker space on the woodturning team, we allowed a tormek wheel to get really small and now the full size replacement means effectively regrinding every tool because of the difference in diameter. I spent more than 2 hours on a 3/8 ths skew and didn't even get 2/3 rds done. We have lots of tools, it could take weeks to resharpen with the standard wheel. I see there is a diamond wheel available but is it going to be quicker and will it last? I have read reviews which claim the tormek diamond wheels simply don't last. I believe it might be possible to get a cbn wheel from a different brand and fit it to the tormek. I have read much more positive reviews about cbn. If anyone has experience of using cbn or diamond on the tormek I would love to hear, what grit,
is it faster than a standard wheel and what is the longevity like.
