multi tip tooth advice

Recommended Posts

New grinder came with multi tip teeth, I like them but want to fine tune the use of them.

 

I understand that the 2 leading edges do the work, and these two need to be sharp. What about the others?

 

I did a test and removed all of my teeth and had a local shop grind them good, as best as they could. Seemed to be no difference in cutting performance.

 

So do the non leading edges really just clear the waste? is it even worth having these made sharp or just leave them clearing until theres no metal left on them?

 

Its great being able to change just 2 leading teeth in 3 mins and have a seemingly new machine but not sure how to get best value from this system.

 

Input please :thumbup1:

Their design is good at clearing debris.

It is difficult to get at the non leading edges to sharpen.

Next time you buy new teeth try replacing the multi-tips with Rhino teeth. Much better.

I do use old multi-tips on the 'inner' slots of the wheel just to clear/rake out the debris.

 

I've found the performance/cost balance of this set-up works well.

It is really easy to sharpen the Rhinos

Call me thick here but how do you just change the leading teeth? This is the multitips I'm using.

The wheel isn't square, it's a parallelogram. Therefore one opposite pair of teeth protrudes further from the centre of rotation than the other pair.

 

Those are the leading teeth. Measure the clearance between the teeth and the wheel housing to work out which are which.

I might try a pair of Rhinos next time.

 

Do you ever change the non leading / inner teeth then? Im thinking of leaving mine completely and simply changing the 2 important ones.

 

Be great to see a side on slow mo vid of this head in action

Only two off them cut and two clear but when all 4 are brand new there is a difference in time but now worth changing change all 4

They say change all 4 every every time by using the clearers with the last used teath

I have never sharpen mine not worth it
