I am constructing a system with motor and reduction pulleys to allow back honing in situ. Can anyone advise
a) what speed show I use for a typical cylinder rpm
b) how long is a typical back hone session, 5mins 10mins, half hour?
c) what grade of grit/oil to use
This assumes that the bottom blade and cylinder are serviceable
Will post pix of my rig
PS why doesnt forward honing work? surely the blade tends to be self sharpening?
