The Tormek Way of Sharpening



When you use a water-cooled Tormek sharpening system, repeatability is sim­ple. Whether you’re sharpening a chisel, plane iron, carving gouge or kitchen utensil, the tool is always guided by a jig. This process also removes less mate­rial, extending the life of your tools, and is more accurate. Even complicated shapes such as fingernail turning gouges, spoon-carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radiused edge are easily sharpened. The water-lubricated grindstone and the final power honing on the leather honing wheel work the same way as benchstone sharpening, except the motorized process speeds up the work.
