Congratulations, it will turn sharpening into a non event.

I just ordered the Woodmizer auto grinder and auto setter. I forget the model numbers. My local guy that was doing my sharpening raised his prices and has been struggling to keep up for the last couple months. I figured, if Iím running the carbon steel blades, it would pay for itself in 6-7 months at the new price. The timing wasnít great for spending 5k, but it was time to make the move.

I just looked at the Veil sharpener on their web site. I'm no expert but thats the first I have seen where the CBN wheel is stationary and the blade moves up and down to grind. Is that unique to them? 
I'm also considering investing in a sharpener and from what I read, CBN is the way to go. The price of this one is easier to swallow compared to the other CBN's I have seen. 
Do you have experience with their sharpener or know someone that does? What made you choose it?

Doesn't seem to be much info about the Veil online.  I'd be interested in seeing a video of it working once you get it up and running.

There is some video of the unit running on u tube 
I stumbled across it and like how easy it was to set up and the space it takes up.
The other reason was it was cbn with a dry set up.
I'm very sensitive to oil now for some reason. I don't know if it's because of all the meds I'm on or what.
I know the wheels won't last as long dry.
I researched dry cbn and there are lots of things it's used on.
Cost is another issue it looks well built.
The Woodmizer set up is out of my budget at the moment. 
Things are going well , but I have other things to buy coming up as well.

I had to dig around and find the Viel on Youtube. That is a very interesting concept, I think it will work slick. Bruno, I think you will find how it gives those two seperate light kisses will do a very nice job. It's also a great idea, the way it is configure it doesn't look like it will take much more space than a bench grinder. Very cool, I can't wait until you get it!

That is interesting. Would love to see how the feed works mechanically. Dosen't seem to be terribly hard on the grind so maybe wheel life will be better than you expect.

With a CBN, a different wheel is required for each hook angle? Correct?

Just checked out the videos . Very neat idea. First time if seen that approach to sharpening . 

Most of their tools are first rate so this should be no exception . You will defiantly have to give us the details on how it performs . If I had not just got a ď free to me ď fully auto Dinasaw grinder Iím. Thinking I would be stopping in at their shop to check one of those out .

I wonder how hard it is to source different CBN stones . I run Kasco blades .

Does anyone know if woodmizers 5 in cbn wheels will fit on the Viel sharpener?  I see they only offer 2 profiles.  It is hard to read the directions in French. And I have a bunch of 747s and want to get a low cost cbn sharpener.

they are worth the wait..  I sharpened and set 20 bands in a few hours last month.  I enjoy doing it also..  not to mention the quality control!  if I do a bad job I can yell at myself...lol...  but no...  once you get them dialed in and know what to look for its pretty slick! 

I don't worry about changing out bands now a bit sooner than later.. I have the BMT 250 and BMS 250.  be sure to order an extra cbn wheel.  I ordered the 2 I use and had to wait a few months for them.  I like to have a spare on hand like with the belts and micro switches/solenoids.

Bruno,
What blades are you running and what wheel did you order with your Viel?  I ordered one of these last week but having a hard time specifying the right wheel.  
I also played a little dollar conversion game.  There is another company that sells this in the US for $1,100 + shipping, but out of stock, no ETA.  So I went on the Viel site and you can choose CDN$ or US$.  The US$ price was $1,217.21.  OK, that's better.  But I went ahead and paid in CDN$ with PayPal.  PayPal's rate of conversion was better! $1,164.92 + shipping (US$89.73) and supposed to ship this week.  But with Canadian postal, I might not see it until February! ;)

Is this the way all CBN grinders work? What I mean is grinding on the side and not coming down from the top perpendicular.

Tacks Y, yes you want the wheel to drop into the gullet and touch all 3 sides at the same time. Grinding on the way down is not good.

Just got an email with a tracking number.  My units is going out the door today.  Because of the delays, they left my order with the original $15 shipping the web site defaults to and waved the additional charge of the normal shipping for the unit.  So, I paid C$1,400 + C$15 through PayPal.  My credit card shows the final charge of US$1,177.40.  The BMS 25 from WM had a final charge of $917.38.  I'm thinking this is a major upgrade for only $260!

My shipping label was actually created back on 12/8.  If finally updated today as being picked up and scheduled to be delivered on 12/23.  Just in time for Christmas!  They are in Canada and I think they are using a boarder town to speed up the shipping.  It shows that it originated in Presque Isle, ME.

The other reason was it was cbn with a dry set up.
I'm very sensitive to oil now for some reason. I don't know if it's because of all the meds I'm on or what.
I know the wheels won't last as long dry.
I researched dry cbn and there are lots of things it's used 
The oil is a lubricant and also cools the wheel. Water does the same thing although not as good of a lube. Might try as little as a water drip onto a sponge that is touching the wheel. What wears out the wheel is knocking the bits out of the plating or sintering. Consider cutting just a few thousandths and try not to be aggressive when sharpening. That may help the wheel last longer. You can dress diamond wheels, is there enough material to dress a CBN wheel ?? ??

You can use the pink rv antifreeze it has rust inhibitors and I believe it is fairly non toxic.

My unit was supposed to have shipped last week.  I'm getting one of their wheels that matches the 10į profile (mine are 9's).  They said that WM wheels won't work on their unit.
I thought you built one??

I recently rebuilt my dual tooth setter.  I made a sharpener with a grinding stone on a radial arm saw a few years ago.  Worked pretty good (better/faster then the local WM resharp) for the first 100 sharpenings.  The biggest problem with that was I could only put a 3/4" stone on the mandrel when I really needed a 1" stone to make the entire 7/8" profile.  That and the fact that the stone looses its shape pretty quickly and needs to be redressed.  So, I gave up on that and decided to go with a commercial unit.  I thought I'd do the BMS25 (12v setup) for my property but the shipping delays were just too much for me - then this Viel showed up.

Got a UPS status text message Wednesday night that should expect my package from "VIEL TOOLS / GARY'S UPHOLSTERY" on 12/23 in the morning.  I guess Gary has a little side shipping business. ;D

That's quite interesting, Presque Isle is a long, long, way from Montreal, and there would be much larger, easier, places to cross for shipping.  I wonder if they have a domestic company building them.

Hmm, or maybe they just have a warehouse there for US shipments?  Take a truck load over once a month or so.

Eh, I don't know. I am from there and that makes no sense to me. I would be interested to know what address the ship from is when it shows up. 

@SwampDonkey can you think of any place there that might be doing this?

 I went ahead and paid in CDN$ with PayPal.  PayPal's rate of conversion was better! $1,164.92 + shipping (US$89.73) and supposed to ship this week.  But with Canadian postal, I might not see it until February! ;)
Have you done this before with Paypal, paying Canadian? Because when I've used them before, paid in US from Canadian dollars, the Visa company then flips it back to Canadian on your Visa bill, so you pay two conversion fees. Then it's like paying 54% on exchange. ::) So I avoid Paypal. Visa is safe anyway, if I don't get my stuff by 6 weeks, they reverse all charges.

@Southside I suspect it's a brokerage firm such as Beaver Brokerage or something. It would be more logical to be in Houlton, Me than at Presque Isle. Woodstock NB crossing is on a 4-lane into Houlton, ME and 24 hr. and at the 4-lane down through Maine. 4 lane from Montreal to Woodstock. Maybe the 'upper Canadian' crossings are too congested with all the COVID mess?

Tracking is pretty flaky at the best of times. I've had stuff shown being shipped across the states when ordered from Canada, all the sudden disappeared from radar for 3 days and then show up in Dieppe, NB and here the next day. And free shipping. :D That was just last spring, ordered from Bed Bath and Beyond out of Canada a whole case of filters, each one cost less than one each here, if you can get them. Because there would be one if your lucky and 30 people after it. :D Same with the solution for the humidifier, it's $6 a bottle from HD and Amazon wants $40 a bottle sometimes, and call it free shipping. What a crock. :D

When I was out shopping on 12/23, I got a text that my package had arrived.  I texted my son to bring it in off the doorstep and he could wrap it for me for Christmas if he wanted.  So he did.  Then by Christmas morning, I started coming down with something.  Got tested for C19 yesterday and awaiting results.  Opened up the package and was a little worried.  

It was packed in a Shop Fox variable speed bench grinder box.  I expected a Viel box since they have so many different tools that they make.  They do sell a lot of Shop Fox tools.  So they are not using the Baldor grinder anymore.  They basically crammed the other parts in there and stuffed it full of paper packing.  One minor cosmetic damage - a ding in the front cover with a little paint loss.  The box came in a 53 pounds.  I know the FedEx guy must not have been happy.  It is very well built.  Once I shake this cold I will set up a work table to mount it on and get it dialed in, I'll get some pictures and maybe a video.

Bruno,  The assembly instructions they sent were the same as what is online at their website - in French.  I did Google translate and some cut and paste with my printer and made the attached.  Leaves a little to be desired in the translation but clear enough.

The only thing I don't get is they included 3 extra wheel plates/washers.  Not sure why or what the plan is for them.

So the grinder shaft looks like it was turned down, not sure if it is factory.  My calipers are down in my shop and it is pouring rain right now so no precise measurements.  The black flange is a close fit on the shaft of about 1/2".  The grind "stone" has a 1.25 hole in it that is an extremely close fit on the flange.  If you look closely, you can see 4 set screws that are used to true up the grind stone once you torque it on to the grinder shaft.  The stone is 4.5" in diameter.

I figured, if Iím running the carbon steel blades, it would pay for itself in 6-7 months at the new price. The timing wasnít great for spending 5k, but it was time to make the move.

Well, you'll have to wait until after mine arrive.  I ordered in June and am still waiting.  I was told mid November a few months ago, and I keep forgetting to call for an update.  Sheesh!  I'm running low on blades!
