Hi Vince, well with my inexperience I would say the 20 degree angle is not the face because I don't think you should ever need that much rake. As for dressing the stone, just touch it off before each use to keep the face flat and square. Or grind off the bigger waste then dress the stone for the final run. That's my two cents.

Vince,

I'd use that tool in the orientation shown in the photo - very good for the bulk removal of steel.  As Don suggests, I think the Worden was designed for finishing off tools with the bulk of the rough shaping being done on a conventional off hand bench grinder.  Using it like that I've found that I don't need to true the wheel very often, although it gets dirty looking it still seems to cut well.  I only generally true the wheel if I want a sharp corner as the edge tends to round with use.

That's a very nice job you've made of the traverser - I really must get on and do mine.

Cheers,

Rod

Nicely done Vince.

And a good question about dressing.
