IDAGS, now somewhat confused.
I have a delta dc-380, I've honed the knives many times now, but I really
need to take these out to sharpen. I'm inclined to get the planer jig for my
Tormek, but now have reservations about hollow grinding. Any advise?
I was also reading though the manual on blade replacement/alignment,
starting thinking of the magna-set (or planer pal) . Are these worth it? Are
you getting good results using the jig that came with the planer? Anyone
If you've got the money for a Tormek jig, get it. I use my Makita, which
gives a flat grind, but the hollow grind is about ease of honing, not edge,
so makes no difference. I also use the spider that came with my
Rockwell/Invicta 13 - the ancestor of yours - for blade setting, and it's
quick, accurate, and even adjustable if it wasn't set up properly at the
factory. Mine was, and still has the original locktite on the locknuts
after 20 years.
