Good feedback. I think that, for me, given the frequency I turn, it might not matter whether I get CBN or diamond. I have experience with diamond plates up to 1200 grit sharpening my chisels and think they are the best. No maintenance and they seem toast forever. I then home with a 4000 and 8000 ceramic glass stone. Great results.
The only drawback to the diamond wheels that allegedly will be available in June from Tormek is their price. CBN would be less expensive if the prices quoted so far for the Tormek wheels are accurate.
