Rpk, Rk and Rvk, where do these numbers come from? Why do they change so much and so often? Utilizing new software and measuring tools, you can move beyond the numbers and actually SEE the surface texture created in your honing process. Once you can see that texture, you can begin to modify your process (abrasives, loads, etc..) to create better performing and long lasting surfaces. Ed Kiebler and Lake Speed Jr. will show you the software in action and share their experiences of honing without the numbers, but still using a profilometer.
