    DIY MDF wheel?

    19”, is that for razors or more for chefs knives?

    Yes MDF. I've used Baltic Birch plywood in the past with good results, but decided to give MDF a try as it's about half the cost and appears to be more uniform.

    It's mostly for knives and general use, but I do use my 14" quite a bit for razors now, just not for any of the hollow grinding. I would say that my 14" is my most used wheel.

    I may have used particle board for my 19" wheel. I guess I'm not clear on the difference.

    Anyway the wheel itself is done. When holding it against the grinder I could see that the tensioning/tracking wheel was not going to be able to be done the way I had envisioned. I set it aside to let my brain work on it a bit, went to bed thinking that the whole idea was basically a fail. This morning I think that I've come up with a new plan.
