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.
