HAHA You had to? No you wanted/needed to !! Addiction is a terrible thing…

 

See on the day of your funeral all these clients that you run about after will employ someone else to do there stumps, life too short to be a whipping boy for the whim of a client :biggrin:

Ordered a bench grinder to sharpen my tungsten teeth, utter garbage, actually ordered wrong one. It was a knife sharpener if German make... It's going back asap... What do you guys use?? I do have a diamond sharpener but it's such a small area in the disc so it's not very handy

Our Bosch angle grinder with diamond disc would require 4 batteries at least to sharpen 8 lead teeth on our 4012 on a cold day.

I take a mains grinder and extension lead or change teeth which ever is more convenient.

I use a bench grinder with the correct wheel!

A standard carbide wheel is only good to reduce the milder steel behind the Tungsten tip. The only thing that will touch the tip is a specialist Tungsten Carbide wheel (Green Grit) which is designed specially for this purpose. The dust is a bit naughty though so wear a mask!

One like this:

Makes short work of bringing a worn tooth back to new condition. I get about 4-5 re-sharpens on most finger teeth (if I haven't snapped or bent them by then!).

Agree 100 percent re. the bench grinder and green wheel, I bought a decent respirator as well. The dust gets everywhere and it looks nasty.

I thank you for taking your time for

A very constructive answer.

 

I will indeed go down this road, will order a suitable good grinder with a couple of green wheels..

 

I got so many teeth kicking about here and there, and I hesitate to pay for new at the moment, better get them buggers fixed so they can earn me a coin.

 

Thanks

 

Best regards

 

Stefan

Why not have a full set of new teeth in the van at all times, change any damaged ones in situ, and sharpen the old ones at home?..

 

Stefan, I've taken a keen interest in you and what you do for a living.. You say you like tracked equipment.. why not get a mini digger?.. switch it up betwixt stump grinding and digging?..

You could even use the mini digger to get stumps out..

 

I dare say mini digger work won't involve to much traveling as well..
