$ 97.00

With the NEW Tormek patented SVD-186 you can sharpen your woodturning gouges to a razor sharpness with full control. You get an exact replication of both the shape and edge angle. You can also use it for woodcarving tools, such as curved gouges and V-tools. Used correctly, there is no alternative method that can give you faster or sharper results.

What differs SVD-186 from SVD-185?

SVD-186 is a further development of SVD-185. The jig now fits up to 36 mm wide tools (2), has an improved disc (1) and an easy and precise click setting (3). The lower sleeve (4) has been shortened in order to work better with the Tormek T-3 and T-4.
Superior Edge

Wet grinding on your Tormek gives you a very sharp edge that will last much longer. A really sharp gouge cuts easily and will give the wood a very fine surface, often there is no need for sanding.

Full control

With the Turning Tool Setter TTS-100, you get exactly the shape and edge angle you want depending on your turning. Even the length of the side wings can be varied so that the shape of the gouge fits your way of turning.

Exact replication

Thanks to the exact replication of both the shape and the edge angle, the sharpening will take less than a minute. Since you only remove a tenth of a millimetre at each sharpening, your turning tools will last for years, probably your whole lifetime.

Gentle on the steel

With the Tormek system the edge is cooled continuously with water and there is no risk of the steel to become overheated and losing its hardness.

The jig comprises a tool holder (1) which runs in a sleeve (2). The tool is aligned with a disc (4) and tightened with a screw (5). Easy and precise click setting (6). The stop ring (7) can be set with a screw (8) in order to round of the heel of the grinding face. The setting can be noted on a special recipe label (10), which is attached to the ferrule. A special pen, which works on these labels is included (11). For turning cutters there is a shaft (12) with a mounting screw (13) and a 2.5 mm allen key (14)..

For fingernail shaped turning gouges, bent carving gouges and V tools . Maximum tool width 36 mm (1 3/8"). Also for turning cutters.
