Just looking to see if this sounds about right to you guys as far as order of tuning steps….the tools I'm using are below, I know I'm missing pieces, just not sure what else is necessary...
1. Hot wax, quick scrape, brush with Brass to clear dirt out. Repeat if the wax shavings have noticeable dirt in them.
2. Use the sidewall planer to pull back the wall
3. Use base file guide and toko file to set base edge, (do I wet the regular file?) then swap out for a few passes with each diamond stone low grit to high grit, applying spray each time, or can i use a combo of dipping in water so i don't use up all of the solution?
4. What type of brush should I clean out the diamond stones with, or will soaking them release the metal shavings?
5. Insert fine white ceramic into the file guide to harden the base edge angle
6. Tape off both sides of the base (how close to the edge, 2mm? this won't change the angle significantly?)
7. set side angle with (panzer or toko file ??) and fixed degree guide
8. run the diamonds a few times, 200-400-800
9. run fine ceramic on file guides to harden
10. gummy stone? or is there another step before gummy?
I know I forgot something….
Here's what I'm working with to tune the family...
- Swix super jaws with adjustable 60 degree angle end supports
- Swix sidewall planer
- 1,2,3,4 degree fixed side angle guides, clamps
- 0.5, 0.75, 1.0 base angle (.5 Beast, .75, 1.0 are swix all metal)
- 200, 400, 800 moonflex
- Artech spray solution
- 6 inch panzar file
- Swix fine ceramic (white) stone
- a few ~9" inch thin toko files with grooves on the sides
- Artech Brass oval brush
- Holmenkol white (softer) and black (stiffer) nylon
- Gummi stone
What I don't have….
- Structuring device
- Arkansas Stone
Thanks in advance. any help is great…..I'm worried I'm going screw something up
