SAVE on the Ultimate sharpening assortment! We've bundled the Tormek T-7 Sharpening System with the Tormek Woodturner's Accessory Kit, Planer/Joiner Blade Jig, and 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 be automatically 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. The Planer/Joiner Blade Jig sharpens HSS blades of any size, while the Woodturner's Accessory Kit includes a Gouge Jig (SVD-185) for fingernail shaped bowl gouges and spindle gouges, a Tool Rest (SVD-110) for scrapers, hollowing tools, and thin parting tools, a Turning Tool Setter (TTS-100T) with built-in edge geometries, a Profiled Leather Honing Wheel (LA-120) for honing and polishing the flute on gouges, a Machine Cover (MH-380), a Multi-Jig (SVS-50) for skew chisels with a straight or curved edges, and a book and DVD.

Each of these unique slabs is individually cut to reveal the most interesting grain and to preserve as much of the natural live edge as possible - use them for table tops, clock faces, signs, decorative wall hangings and whatever else your imagination can drum up. Live edge slabs reveal the individual character of the tree from which they were cut, and provide woodworkers with beautiful wide boards that would otherwise be ripped thin if milled for yield. Because of their width, most of these slabs won't fit through a jointer or planer. Instead, they are carefully flattened on a custom-built, manually-operated mill. The slabs are then sanded to 150-grit and given a light of coat of clear shellac for protection. All of these slabs are sourced from small family-owned mills that practice responsible land management. For dimensions refer to the grid in the photo: each red square represents 12''; each black square represents 4'' When necessary, checking and defects are carefully patched at the mill Sanded to 150-grit and coated with shellac for protection
