The Tormek Original Grindstone has evolved over the years to offer the best combination of efficient steel removal, smooth surface finish and a long life. This stone efficiently cuts all types of tools and steel qualities including HSS.
The unique composition of the stone, together with the Stone Grader SP-650 gives you two different cutting actions in one stone. The Stone grader polishes the surface of the grindstone from its normal 220 grit to a finish that works like a 1000 grit stone. This is a great advantage, since you can do the fine sharpening* with the same setting of the jig as used for the initial shaping* of the tool. The Original Grindstone is the ideal choice when you want both efficient steel removal and fine finish in the same stone over a wide variety of materials, from carbon steel to high speed steel.
This is a brand new stone, 200mm diameter, returned by an Amazon customer due to a slight chip as a result of poor Amazon packaging. The chip is @ 1.5mm in width (4% of the total width of the stone) and 7mm deep. It should not affect your grinding and if it does the chip can be lowered by using the TT-50 truing tool just on the width of the chip. Save $20 (15%)!
