Tormek's original grindstone, and the one that comes as standard on your T4. The SG200 Original Grindstone has evolved over the years to offer the best combination of efficient steel removal, smooth surface finish and a long life. This stone efficiently cuts all types of tools and steel qualities, including HSS.
The Tormek Knife Jig SVM45 is suitable for sharpening all kinds of knives; household knives, chef’s knives, craft knives and knives for hunting and fishing. You can also sharpen carver’s drawknives.
As the jig rests freely on the Universal Support you can follow the curve of the blade.
With the Tormek Axe Jig SVA170 you will be surprised to see how sharp you can get an axe. The jig firmly supports the axe, and enable you to sharpen it with a constant edge angle.
The leather honing wheel gently removes the burr which develops during grinding and polishes the bevel. It is used together with the Honing Compound PA-70.
With the wide range of Tormek patented jigs, you can sharpen practically all types of edge tools. Tormek is dedicated to developing water cooled sharpening through innovative solutions.
The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. You can shape the tool exactly to your needs. Even complicated shapes such as fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radiused edge are easily sharpened.
You finish the sharpening process by honing and polishing the edge on the leather honing wheel. You get a razor sharp edge.
Once the shape is created, you remove only a fraction of the steel when re-sharpening, which makes it a quick job.
At the low speed, you have full control of the sharpening and remove no more steel than necessary. An extra benefit is that your tools last longer.
There is no risk that the edge becomes overheated and loses its hardness.
Worn steel particles are deposited into the water trough, keeping the air clear of grinding dust. No sparks are produced, avoiding a potential fire hazard in workshops with a lot of wood dust. You will also find that the Tormek runs surprisingly quietly.
Buying a Tormek is a safe investment in quality and performance with a 7 year warranty. You are assured that all future developments will fit your machine.
*When used for commercial, industrial or educational purpose, the T4 warranty is 2 years.
