Hi there,
Can anybody assist me. Today, I received a new Triton TWSS10 sharpening machine complete with whetstone and honing wheel. Can't yet comment on performance but the leather strap on the honing wheel has a 4mm gap at the angled join. Is this normal and will the gap decrease with usage, or is this a fault?
I am new to the sharpening and honing process and I will be a tad disappointed if this is a fault; as I spent some time in research for a good name at a reasonable price.
Would be great if any experienced folk could comment.
Thanks

Sounds like the leather has shrunk.
I would ask for a replacement wheel to be sent to you.

In case you don't already know, many of the jigs from the various makers are interchangeably, at quite different prices.
