T-W Designs - Diamond Power Hone
Review by Steve Lindsay
I have been using this T-W Diamond Power Hone for some time. The speed in which I can rough and finish a carbalt blank is under two minutes with the machine. I use the machine to rough grind using the Lindsay template fixture. Once roughed I then rub the graver face on a Lindsay 2000 diamond bench diamond stone with 10 to 15 strokes and then place on the heels with 3 to 7 strokes per side depending on heel size needed. I use the machine at maximum speed for this roughing. The motor has good torque and I can lean on the graver somewhat that also helps. If grinding a High Speed Steel graver I take it more easy and I don't lean on it as much so that the graver does not get hot and lose its temper. Be careful with HSS graver and don't get them so hot that they turn colors. I monitor the heat of HSS gravers with my fingers while grinding for this reason.

Model 2 Diamond Power Hone

Review by Jim Downing

I recently received my new T.W. Designs Deluxe 2 Diamond Power Hone and I
couldn't be happier with the improvements over the original design. The
original was a great machine but ran too fast for me and the diamond hone
would flex at times skewing the angles. I use The Lindsay M-42 and Carbolt
bits along with the Lindsay Template system and spend many hours each day
at the bench engraving stainless steel "Vaqueros". These are some of the
hardest guns on the market so keeping the sharpest tool is a must. Tom has
changed the electronics on the new tool to allow for a slower speed *as
you like* with a high torque in the full range of speed. The two sided
diamond lap is now supported from within for a stiff and accurate cut
angle. The new two way switch will deliver the rheostat adjusted low to
mid speed or the full 4900 RPM high end. I was afraid the unit might lift
off the bench at the high speed so I simply disconnected the top
connection on the switch and disabled the high speed which I don't use. I
used to be torn about which was the best power hone on the market but the
New Duluxe 2 Diamond Power Hone is the hands down winner that I will
recommend to all my students and fellow engravers. Jim
