    A picture of the machine would be nice.
    Let us know how that $107 device works out.

    Due to all this no pet adoption here. Shelters closed up like a drum.
    Sad as one has passed and we could use a new one or two new guy or gals in this time.

    So confused here. Where did I do wrong and make you unhappy with me?

    I do.
    It leaves a very dull and loaded wheel much as soft steel does.
    Most likely you will want to stick the wheel to open it back up.
    It is a slow truing process with a capital S.

    Not sure where that information comes from.

    Wheel plate makes me think face wheel.
    I would not go .001 deep even with moly, more 1/5th of this and would be thinking hundreds of passes.
    You have 10% and I doubt that flat given your depth. I...

    On a down move try going past it and then back up to your hand wheel number.
    This keeps the assembly loaded in the up. Always a up move to size.
