Tormach Surface Grinder – Grinding 4140 Perfectly Flat & Parallel & Grinding Fun with Dykem

Hi folks! I’m back!

My “excuse” for being MIA this past month is my newborn child! Anyways, I had a job come in which involved a lot of surface grinding which was a good excuse to really dig in and get to know this Tormach grinder. I’ve really boosted my confidence in using it and sort of fallen in love with grinding.

In this video, I wanted to “re introduce” the machine (which I’m in the BETA program for with Tormach) and show grinding a piece of 4140 flat and parallel. Also, for kicks, I add some dykem and then “pick it back up” without grinding any steel.
