Description

The Tormek water-cooled sharpening system has a well-deserved reputation for versatility, accuracy and ease of use. Its precise jig-guided control allows even the novice to consistently produce tools with proper edge geometry. The double-ended arbor carries two wheels – a 220x aluminum oxide grindstone and a leather stropping wheel charged with compound. Grinding on the stone followed by stropping creates a toothed edge suitable for shears, cutlery, axes or utility chisels. When you need a refined edge, you can use the included stone grader to convert the grindstone’s surface to a fine texture comparable to 1000x; subsequent stropping produces a mirror finish. Made in Sweden from sturdy, high-quality components.

This basic T-4 sharpening machine is suitable for general home and workshop sharpening. It has an impact-resistant ABS plastic housing with a cast zinc top plate to provide firm support for the jigs. The machine includes a 200mm dia. by 40mm wide (8" × 1 5/8") grindstone, a 145mm dia. by 26mm wide (5 3/4" × 1") leather wheel, and a removable trough that holds the water and collects swarf. Its 115V motor runs at 120 rpm, is rated for 1/2 hour of use every hour and has a rust-resistant stainless-steel arbor.

The machine also comes with a gauge for measuring and setting bevel angles, a stone grader and a 70g tube of 3-micron honing compound and includes a 7-year warranty. A 58-minute DVD and 164-page manual provide complete instructions for sharpening an array of tools, as well as maintenance advice and other tips. For those who would like a preview, the DVD is also sold separately.
