Tormek's new T-7 pairs an already widely acclaimed sharpening system with two new innovations for enhanced accuracy, convenience and versatility. With the 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.Wet stone grinding with a slow running speed gives you full control while grinding. The wheel will not shatter, and there are no dangerous sparks. The quiet vibration-free industrial motor is rated for continuous operation, and the honing wheel has a coupling for fast removal.With the Tormek System, you do BOTH the initial grinding (when you shape the tool and create the optimal edge angle) and the sharpening on the same grindstone. The grindstone can easily be changed from fast grinding to fine sharpening. Because the grinding and sharpening utilize water cooling, there is no risk of burning the edge and drawing the hardening from the steel. The honing and polishing is carried out on a leather honing wheel.Features:Square Edge Jig accepts blades up to 76mm or 3" in width.Square Edge Jig features safety stops, which prevent the tool from slipping off the stone.Truing 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 stone.Stainless steel hardware: Prevents rust and wear on bearings.Universal Support with acme thread: Round section without flat machining makes it faster to change position.Improved Horizontal Base: Double locking screws and tighter fit for maximum precision.Micro 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 users.
Here's an accurate and inexpensive way to set up your drill press for boring the large diameter holes required for cup hinges. Simply align your fence with the hole in the jig, then tighten down your fence. You'll get consistently accurate holes with a perfectly set ''tab'' for your hinge. Set up couldn't be any easier! Made in USA. Appropriate ''tab'' (distance from door edge to edge of cup hole) is laser-etched onto the JIG-ITMade from stable, durable HDPE materialDrilling jigs available for 35mm and 26mm hinge cup holes
The versatile Universal Support is the basis of the Tormek system, and this upgrade for older models incorporates a micro adjust feature for exact and fast fine setting. It is made of 12mm (approx. 1/2") round steel and has a double mounting for maximum stability.The Universal Support can be placed either in the vertical sleeves or in a horizontal base. These two positions enable you to grind either toward or away from the edge. The Universal Support can also be placed horizontally for honing with jigs, but honing must always be done with the wheel turning away from the edge.
