Soon there will be the possibility to keep you up to date via video here in the news ticker. So look here from time to time, then you will not miss any more info`s.

Attention 80 Grit sold out (next delivery 2-3 weeks)

ATTENTION: have a look at the video in the sidebar “Modification Bracket”. Here are important info`s in it to the clamp.

Small tip to the line laser….the batteries contained in it (2 button cells) are partly not the best. I recommend to change them and to replace not 2 but 3 of these button cells. Then the laser lasts very long.


The production at Vetako is running again. The machines are still missing parts but the production of the goniometers will probably start on 19.04. These will be available again towards the end of the month (finally).

Welcome to

My goal here is to create a basis for “grinding maniacs”.

I own and discuss the following devices here:

Tormek T8

Ermak 10

Ermak 5

All things Offered by me in the shop I also use myself.
After it was very awkward to get to CBN-Wheels in Germany, you can also
with clear water, I have decided to do something about it.

I was also asked again and again for sources of supply for my tools.
So I decided to have them produced in a limited number of pieces in order to

    Die Software ist klasse und erspart viel Zeit. Auch der Tipp von Hanns mit einem Tiefenmessschieber die Vertikal Front Base einzustellen,führt zu sehr guten Ergebnissen.

    Hallo Hanns, vielen Dank für den Hinweis dass es eventuell zu einer Kaltverschweißung kommen kann. Wenn jedoch wie hier, der Verkäufer selbst auf diese eventuelle Kaltverschweißung eine Info veröffentlicht und gleich eine Lösung anzeigt, dann spricht dies für absoluten Service und Qualitätsanspruch vom Verkäufer. Danke

    Mit der 80er Scheibe habe ich nun die dritte nach dem 400er und dem 160er Rad in Betrieb genommen. Bei sehr stumpfen oder schartigen Messern ist das ein großer Zeitgewinn.
    Habe gleich einen zweiten Adapter mitbestellt für die zweite T8, die unterwegs ist.
    Zur Info: Tormek bietet die T8 nun als günstigere Custom Version ohne Scheiben an.
    Grüße Bernd
    P.S. Der Versand war wieder prompt und der Support Spitze. Danke Hanns!

I loop and reports about it, on the following machines:

Tormek T8 with various modifications.

Here I use homemade toolbars, pin pivot collars and an adapter that I mount,
when I grind several knives in a row. Here I mount by means of the adapter 2
grinding wheels at the Tormek so I can use the 400 and then the 1000 stone
sequentially without retooling. This is especially useful if I have several
wants to grind similar knives in one piece.

I have been riding CBN wheels for 6 months with the grinding stones. These have 160, 400 and
1000 Grit FEPA. These can run in clear water without the expensive fluid. If you consider the durability of the
Wheels calculate how much fluid you use for it you could use my bill after 2 wheels
Buy. You can read the first customer opinions in the shop. The quality of the wheels is absolutely convincing and takes grinding to another level.

For the exact adjustment of the cutting angle I have developed my own software. This is available in my shop for Windows. There are 2 versions. One specifically for the Tormek T8 with fixed values and on the other hand a “Universal” version usable for many machines after inserting two dimensions. A version for Android is available in the Playstore. The IOS version is in the works and will be available in the next few weeks.

I also designed my own front wheel base from a block. Tormek no longer needs the xb-100. The corresponding software can be found in the shop or for Android in the Playstore

I use the Ermak 10 for knives where the grinding angle must be perfectly adhered to
over the entire cutting length. I have a
special machine for left-handed users.

The Ermak 5 (I have completely new) if I want to grind convex or also quite conventional.
More and more people are realizing that a convex cut edge is much longer cut-by-cut

The producer of these machines is also a “crazy” of course in a positive sense. For him as well as for
me are his machines small works of art that look remarkable and what else much
more importantly, deliver excellent sharpening results.

You can pay either by bank transfer or by PayPal.
