Needed a sharpener. This looked just about as good as the Tormex so I got it. Now to get the jigs. Is Rikon going to make those or do I have to buy the ones for Tormx??

Rikon Sharpener
Love its drive mechanics it has a direct drive worm gear system and the price is right.

It works well enough, but is a bit grumbly and goaning. The single bi direction switch is very poor design as it is easy to switch to the opposite rotation when trying to shut it off, and that seems like it will shorten the lifespan of the drive system.

Good but not Great
For a low speed grinder, I thought it was too noisy, the gear drive doesn't mess well and the wheels won't turn freely. The Stone was not round, I don't mean flat I mean it is not cylindrical with the hole in the center, this creates and up and down motion when grinding. The leather strop was a little rough but with enough compound it did the job. It should get better over time. All in all it will save time and if you just need a quick clean up on an edge the strop does that well. I sharpened all my chisels quickly once I got the hang of setting the tool. Probably works OK for the price.

Rikon wet grinder
Returned to Rockler. It had a very loud sound; probably had bad bearings of shaft misalignment. If you get a good one the price is right. I’ll be looking at Tormek.

Can I use Tormek jigs with the Rikon?
MICHAEL Z on Nov 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Tormek jigs fit the tool rest on the Rikon.
What accessories are available for this unit ???
Tim N on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The support arm is 12mm in diameter which is the same as Tormek uses. So I would think there are plenty of accessories for this unit available.
What material are the drive gears made of?
Daniel on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It has a pinion design drive it is a positive drive unlike its competitor which makes its slightly more noisy but my opinion this makes it a better sharping tool. I have looked at the drive gears and as i remember one looks like it is nylon and the other is metal but if your asking what kind of metal or plastic your should call tech support.
Are finer grit stones available?
John W on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can use a stone grader to change the grit of the stone on there. The Tormek 250/1000 grader works well with this.
Is this a dry sharpener also?
Sara B on Nov 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is not intended to be used without water.
