We're pairing the Tormek T-7 Sharpening System with the Tormek Handtool Kit to save you money and give you enhanced accuracy, convenience and versatility! With the T-7's new Square Edge Jig, your blades will automatically be squared to the grinding wheel without the need for picky adjustments. Since chisels and plane blades are mounted with their flat backs against a large, flat reference surface, there is no risk of rocking or tipping once the jig is tightened down. The T-7 also includes the new Truing and Dressing Tool, which uses a diamond cutter to return worn, out-of-round wheels to like-new condition. Precision screw feed allows you to grade the wheel for a fine or coarse grade by simply varying the rate of feed. Plus, the standard system now includes the SP-650 Stone Grader. Simply press it onto the wheel to grade the wheel up to 1000 grit and flip it over to return the wheel to coarse grinding.T-7 Sharpening System Details:Square Edge Jig accepts blades up to 76mm or 3" in widthSquare Edge Jig features safety stops, which prevent the tool from slipping off the stoneTruing and Dressing Tool with screw feed: Trues the grindstone exactly round and flat. Guided by the Universal Support, which also guides the jigs. Dual knobs for smooth feed across the stoneStainless steel hardware: Prevents rust and wear on bearingsUniversal Support with acme thread: Round section without flat machining makes it faster to change positionImproved Horizontal Base: Double locking screws and tighter fit for maximum precisionMicro Adjust with scale: For a predetermined cutting depth when using the TT-50 Truing and Dressing Tool.7-year warranty applies to all customers, including industrial usersHandtool Sharpening Kit Details:The Knife Jig works to sharpen most knives, including carver's draw knives.

A long time favorite for its rich color and excellent workability, Cherry continues to gain popularity for use in fine furniture and cabinets. The wood leaves the sawmill with a pinkish, rosy tone, and continues to darken over years to a deep, lustrous red. The narrow sapwood has a creamy color, similar to Hard Maple. Cherry is easily worked with hand tools and takes an excellent finish and polish. All boards are machined S4S, and are planed to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses, relieving your planer of excess work. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, mouldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Distribution: As many as five varieties of Black cherry are reported to thrive throughout North America.Tree: Attains heights of about 100 feet (30 m) Average tree grows to about 80 feet (24 m) in height, and produces a tall trunk, about 24 inches (60 cm) in diameter. Cherry trees are usually large enough to harvest after 35 to 40 years. Full height is attained in about 100 years.Light & Air-Induced Changes: Black cherry is very sensitive to UV light, which causes it to darken over time. UV light inhibitors in coatings can be used to prevent color change.Grain: Fine grain. Material with dark wavy streaks are frequent. Quartersawn lumber has a shimmery appearance.Texture: Fine and uniform. The wood often has narrow brown pith flecks and small gum pockets.Luster: Rich and satiny. Odor: Emits a fruity aroma when cut.Steam Bending: Good. Often compared to Beech and Ash.
The distinctive striped appearance of Zebrawood has made it a favorite for decorative inlays and veneers. The color ranges from golden-yellow to a peanut butter tone with chocolate veins running through it. The wood is hard, dense and extremely tough. These thin boards are machined S4S to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, eliminating wear and tear on your planer. You won't have to worry about tearout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Native to: West Africa, especially Gabon and Cameroon.Tree Data: 48" to 60" diameter trunk. The trees generally have very thick bark.Sapwood: Pale yellow.Heartwood: Light golden-yellow or pale yellow-brown, with narrow streaks of dark brown to almost black, giving a striped appearance.Grain: Generally interlocked or wavy, yielding a ribbon figure. Texture: Medium to coarse. Luster: High luster.Resin: Occasional resin pockets.Movement: Dimensionally stable. Retains its shape well after machining.Veneering Qualities: Zebrawood is used extensively in veneers for cross banding and inlays. Bundles of veneer should be stabilized with weights to prevent buckling.Working characteristics: Responds well to hand and machine tools. Quite easy to saw, but due to interlocking grain, planing is very difficult, often resulting in tearout.Polishing: Good polishing and finishing qualities. Strength: Compressive strength parallel to the grain is high. The wood is hard, very heavy, and very dense. It is tough, with good impact resistance.
If exposed to the open air for long periods of time, the cast iron surfaces of your table saw will inevitably begin to rust. Not with the Zerust Table Saw Cover, however. Once installed, this proprietary cover emits non-toxic vapor corrosion inhibitors (VCIs) that surround your table saw to prevent rust, corrosion and electrochemical reactions. Of course, it also helps to shield your equipment from airborne moisture, dust and abrasions. The rust and corrosion inhibitors will remain active for 5 years after the date of purchase. Made in USA. Dimensions: 45''W x 63''L x 19''HRemains effective for five yearsCleaner and more convenient than oilAlso great for other power tools such as lathes, jointers, planers and more
