More jigs and accessories are available than shown above.
 
 
         
The Tormek sharpening system has a well-deserved reputation for versatility, accuracy, and ease of use. Not only does it sharpen chisels and plane blades, but the system also makes use of various jigs for a wide variety of woodworking and household tools, such as turning and carving tools, planer and jointer blades, cutlery, axes and scissors. Such precise jig-guided control allows even the novice to consistently produce tools with proper edge geometry, makes the process easily repeatable, and helps minimize steel removal so tools last longer through successive sharpenings.
 
You can easily perform a range of processes, from lapping to grinding and stropping, all on the same machine. Its double-ended arbor carries two wheels that rotate slowly for excellent control – a water-cooled 220x aluminum oxide grindstone and a leather wheel that can be charged with compound for stropping. Water flows constantly over the grindstone, so the tool cannot overheat and lose its hardness. It also washes away swarf, so there is no airborne metal dust and the stone resists loading to maintain an even cutting action.
 
Set-up is straightforward; just secure the tool in the jig, mount the jig onto the support arm, and use the angle gauge to position the micro-adjustable arm for the desired bevel angle. The support arm and jig are transferred to the leather wheel after grinding to ensure a flat, consistent bevel when stropping. Made in Sweden from sturdy, high-quality components, this is a complete and well-designed system.
