Sharpen on the Side of the Diamond Wheels
The Tormek Multi Base allows the mounting of the Universal Support so that jigs can be used on the side of the Diamond Wheels. This allows sharpening to a flat surface, eliminating the slight hollow grind that results in using the edge of the wheel. The MB100 mounts in either the vertical or the horizontal position, and has an adjustment line so you can fix the optimal position for each tool and jig.
Note: The MB100 is intended only for use with the DC250, the DF250 and the DE250 Diamond Wheels for the T8 or the DC-200, the DF-600, and the DE-1200 Diamond Wheels for the T4 and not the grinding stones. It is not suitable for use with the grinding stones as they would require truing, which is not possible on their sides.
Works with these Tormek Jigs:
Setting an Angle with the AngleMaster
Updated editions of the TOR-WM200 AngleMaster will be marked with a second scale labled "MB-100". Be sure to use this scale when setting your angle while using the Multi Base.
If you are using an edition of the WM200 AngleMaster that does not have the specially marked scale, then add 18 degrees to your preferred angle when using the Multi Base. For example, to achieve a 25 degree angle, set the AngleMaster to 43 degrees.
Always make sure that the Wheel Diameter Compensator on the AngleMaster is set to 250mm when sharpening with the Multi Base.
Q. Can I use the Multi Base with my T4?
A. Yes. With the introduction of 8" Diamond Wheels, the Multi Base can now be used on the T4 as well as the T8, T7 and Supergrind models.
