Jigs designed for Perfect Control

The system features 11 jigs meant for every specific kind of tools. It removes just a fraction of the steel to allow the jigs to guide the tools for efficient and accurate control of the edge angle and shape.

Universal Support

The Universal Support includes a micro adjustment system for finer setting. The latter support mounts horizontally or vertically to the Tormek T-7’s base.

One needs to simply lower and raise the Universal Support with the Angle Master’s aid to obtain the preferred sharpening angle.

You may also mount it horizontally for sharpening away from the edge. Sharpening on the leather honing wheel is able to be performed either using the SE-76 jig or without it but the Universal Support is where the tool rests.

Angle Master

In spite of the wear and tear occurring on the grindstone, the Angle Master helps in achieving the exact needed angle need in every sharpening occasion.

The angle ranges from 10 degrees to 75 degrees to allow the setting of the jig’s angle to the 10 inch grindstone> It may also be used in measuring the existing angle of an edge tool. The Angle Master is kept securely in place by magnets.

Stone Grader

The 10 inch stone features a 220-grit surface and its Stone Grader allows for quick and easy changing of the surface to a 1,000-grit for purposes of fine polishing.

The Stone Grader allows the user to perform both a fine finish and efficient steel removal and therefore there will be no need to change the stone or the jig.

 Large Wheel

The Tormek T-7 water cooled precision sharpening system uses a 10 by 2 inches stone wheel which provides a durable and wide sharpening surface.

 Powerful Motor.

The Tormek T-7 has a powerful and heavy-duty motor which turns the wheel at a speed of 90 rpm and is able to run continually

E-Z Lock Shaft

 Tool for Truing and Dressing

The tool mounts and locks promptly onto the Universal Support to ensure that the stone surface is, at all times of use, parallel to the tool which is fitted in the jig. This helps in keeping the stone in a perfect condition.
