Some tools are best sharpened with the stone running towards the edge of the tool, others should be sharpened with the stone running away from the tool edge. Tormek's Rotating Base RB-180 rotates 180 degrees to obtain the ideal sharpening direction and it makes it very easy and simple to switch from sharpening to honing. The base was designed to be as thin as possible so as not to affect the working height, while rubber feet ensure it remains steady during sharpening. The base fits the Tormek T-8,T-7, T-3, T-4, 2000 and 1200 series sharpeners.
This item has scratches and scuff marks which will not be visible when the machine sits on it. It is perfectly functional. First image is the actual base - the other four are stock images. Save $12.00.
