Diamond wheel failed on first use
DMT Dia-Sharp Magna-Disc System Honing Kit
I tested this on a chisel that was already nicely sharpened. I first tried the diamond wheel (1200 grit) to flatten the back of the chisel. Worked well. Then I put the chisel in the sharpening port and immediately heard a harsh noise. The wheel developed a large gouge. Trying to figure out what happened, I tried the left side of the port. Same thing happened! What is going on? Wheel is useless now. The fabric wheel and Dia-paste does work okay, though.

This is the answer
Sioux City, IA
I build hand planed bamboo fly rods and that requires super sharp plane blades and that means lots of sharpening. I got tired of burning through sandpaper disks on my Work Dharp 3000 and turned to the honing kit. There's nothing better. I can put a burr on the back of the blade in just a few seconds on the diamond disk, then flip the glass plate to the charged buffing disk and within 20 seconds have the edge polished. In the course of making one rod I might have to resharpen plane blades nine times. What a time saver and I'm getting a better edge than with water stones. I am, in fact, on my second honing kit.
