This time of the year can limit shop time. Working the morning shift, usually a 0530 show and home by 1400 can really put a kink in your productivity. With Monsoon still in full swing the swamp cooler makes afternoons in the shop less comfortable than without. It is a small price to pay for conditions the rest of the year but little gets done when the day job runs through the best of the the shop time.
Damn Bubba cut to the chase.....As I've posted before I've round heels when it comes to ways of sharpening. Basically I've decided there is no one correct way to do the job just some ways work better with one type of tool and iron than than others. Lately I've been trying CBN grinding wheels on the tools I grind. They, CBN wheels, grind supper fast and stay cool but I'm not sure if it isn't too much of a good thing. Bottom line while driving the Princess around the PNW I thought of some changes to make to the grinding station. Once home and back to work, projects this small are about all that can be done for another month or so.
All that is a long way around to posting a photo of the changes I made to the shop's grinding station a couple of days ago. I removed the Tormek rest, mounted both the 80 and the 120 CBN wheels and installed a couple of adjustable tool rests. Does it work any better? Maybe....I'm not 100% convinced the CBN wheels are better and may replace the 80 grit wheel with a Norton.
