A good value-for-money disc sander which will be a great asset in any hobbyist's workshop. The item is merely pressed against the revolving disc and a perfectly flat end can be quickly created in this manner. The 300mm disc is driven by a quiet 750W induction motor and any grit sandpaper can be fitted to it by means of spray-on self adhesive glue. Tip!Self adhesive discs can easily be removed complete with their glue by gently warming with a hot air gun before removing. There is also a brake in the form of a lever that you press to bring the disc to a quick stop. The cast iron sanding table is provided with a slot for the adjustable mitre fence, used for end grain sanding. The table tilts from -15⁰ to +45° and is firmly locked in position with heavy duty handles at both ends. The righ half of the disc is covered to prevent accidents. Dust can be extracted from the bottom of the disc via a shroud which ends in a 63mm diameter outlet. A 450mm length of flexible hose is provided with the machine; this has a 60mm diameter sleeve at the end which will connect directly to an extractor. Designed to be placed on a standard height table or workbench.
The new Tormek Diamond Wheels offer an exceptional durability plus the ability to sharpen on the side as well as the periphery. The new diamond wheels come in three different grades; Coarse, Fine and Extra Fine. The quality of the diamond surface provides a high and constant sharpening ability and a grinding wheel that always remains the full size in diameter. Users who frequently sharpen the same tool will benefit greatly from this feature as it simplifies both setting and sharpening. Diamond is the world's hardest material and almost twice as hard as cubic boron nitride (CBN), which is another commonly used abrasive. The diamond's extreme hardness and durability make it the optimal material for sharpening.
The Tormek LA-120 Profiled leather Honing Wheel accessory removes the burr and polishes the inside on turning and carving gouges and V-tools. It has two exchangeable discs, one with a 1/8" (3mm) radius and the other with a 60º point. Features: Profiled Leather Honing Wheel with two exchangeable discs Hones and polishes inside turning and carving gouges and V-tools For use with the Tormek T-7 and T-3
It is not without reason this jig is named "Multi Jig". It consists of a housing and two interchangeable seats for different types of tools, the open seat and the closed seat, which really makes it two jigs in one. With SVS-50 you can sharpen square and skew turning chisels with straight or curved edges as well as parting tools, roughing gouges and gouges and chisels for woodcarving.
The honing compound is used together with the Tormek Leather Honing Wheels. The unique qualities of the leather together with the honing compound will effectively remove the burr created from sharpening, without damaging the edge. At the same time, it will also polish the bevel to the finest finish. The honing compound contains a combination of micro-abrasives and polishing components (average grain size 3 micron). One application lasts for about 5–10 tools. Work the honing compound into the leather. The leather honing wheel will become saturated and more efficient the more you use it. When you have a new honing wheel, impregnate it first with a light machine oil so that it gets the right texture and can absorb the honing compound. If you work in a dry climate, you might need to re-impregnate the honing wheel after some time with a few drops of oil before you apply the fresh honing compound. Do not let the compound dry, apply more oil if necessary.
The Tormek Original Grindstone has evolved over the years to offer the best combination of efficient steel removal, smooth surface finish and long life. SG-250 is delivered as standard with Tormek T-8.
Tormek Blackstone Silicon has been developed for shaping and sharpening* HSS and other exotic alloyed steels. It can also touch up tungsten carbide. It does not offer faster steel removal on ordinary carbon steel than the Tormek Original Grindstone. The combination of abrasive hardness, shape and grain size is optimized to work efficiently at the Tormek system’s low RPM. Its faster material removal is an advantage especially when shaping tools with a large bevel surface, where the grinding pressure is limited, for example, planer blades and woodturning skews. The grit size 220 is the same as the Tormek Original Grindstone and can be altered to work like a 1000 grit stone with the Stone Grader SP-650. Thanks to its sharp and relatively small grains, the Blackstone removes hard steel efficiently even at low grinding pressure. It can even touch up tungsten carbide, where the tool already has an established shape.
This little jig is designed for sharpening short woodcarving tools and the shortest chisels. Suitable for straight shanked tools, such as wood chisels, carving gouges and tools for power carvers. The jig has two parallel flanges running on both sides of the Universal Support which ensures that the jig at all times – even when rotated – holds the tool square to the grindstone. This is a great advantage, as you can continuously concentrate on how the edge touches the grindstone or the honing wheel without having to worry whether the jig is square to the stone.
With the Stone Grader SP-650 you can change the grit size of the Tormek original grindstone to give a finer sharpening surface. The other side of the Stone grader is used to maintain the grindstone, bringing new abrasive grains to the surface for effective sharpening.
The Tormek Long Knife Jig SVM-140 has been developed especially for the sharpening of long and flexible knives, like filleting knives. This jig works in the same way as the Knife Jig SVM-45 but is wider. Its larger width, 140 mm, stabilizes a long and thin blade and gives more support. Of course, it can also be used for larger knives with a more stable knife blade like chef's knives. The jig rests on the Universal Support. The exact edge angle is set by rotating the adjustable stop or with the Micro Adjust on the Universal Support. The Universal Support is placed vertically for grinding towards the edge.

Redesigned version 2019 This new design is made in cast zinc, which minimises the play and improves the precision and quality of the tool. Easy feeding across the stone You conveniently feed the diamond cutter across the stone by alternately turning the two knobs with both your hands. Thanks to the controlled feed, you get an even and flat stone surface with no ridges.
The Turning Tool Setter TTS-100 is the key to an efficient sharpening of woodturning gouges and skews. It enables you to exactly create and replicate the edge angle on your bowl and spindle gouges as well as on your flat or oval skews with either a straight or a curved edge. TTS-100 works in conjunction with the Gouge Jig SVD-186 and the Multi Jig SVS-50. By knowing your exact profiles, you will be able to replicate them in seconds and radically speed up your sharpening process. The TTS-100 Setter works irrespectively of the stone diameter. You always get exactly the same edge angle – even as the stone decreases in diameter. It also works equally well when setting the edge angle on the leather honing wheel.
The Tormek T-4 is a high quality and compact sharpening machine, ideal for home and hobby work as well as professional use. You get access to the extensive Tormek jig system and can sharpen all the common edge tools with highest precision.
The Tormek AngleMaster has two functions: you can use it to set the edge angle before sharpening or to measure the existing angle of a specific tool. The edge angle can be set from 10° to 75°. The AngleMaster is designed to work on any grindstone diameter from 250 mm or 10" down to 150 mm or 6", so you can achieve an exact setting even as the stone wears.
This kit contains everything you need to shape and sharpen all your turning tools, including two patented jigs (works like three!), a radiused leather honing wheel, a serious instruction, the appreciated Turning Tool Setter and the Tormek Case to store all your jigs.
Upgrade for earlier Tormek machine models. With the Horizontal Base, you can move the Universal Support from vertical mount (for grinding towards the edge) to horizontal mount for grinding away from the edge.
