TORMEK SVD-186 R GOUGE JIG

£65.00 . (£78.00 incl VAT)

Use the SVD-186-R for sharpening woodturning gouges (bowl, spindle and fingernail) to a razor like edge. The Tormek SVD-186-R will handle most carving gouges up to 36mm wide, carving vee tools and multi-tip scraper blades with mounting holes from 5mm to 8mm diameter.

The SVD-186-R and Tormek wetstone machine combination offers three crucial benefits. The jig gives you full control over bevel angle, length and shape. The jig gives you exact repeatability every time you sharpen your tool. The water-cooled wheel results in a superior edge, which lasts longer and leaves a finer finish.

A curved clamping disc ensures correct seating of your tool in the tool holder. The jig settings have positive locking points making setup fast and accurate.

Small spindle gouges are quick and easy to insert with no fiddly washers to add or remove. The jig enables you to grind a bowl gouge with a swept-back bevel. An additional locking allows you to fix the Gouge Jig’s rotary movement at the required location.

This feature, gives you full control when sharpening carving tools, such as V-tools. The SVD-186-R fits all Tormek machines.

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 fraction 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 continuously cooled with water and there is no risk of the steel to become overheated and losing its hardness.

SVD-186 on a bench grinder

If you have a new tool and need to remove a lot of steel in order to change the profile or create a smaller edge angle, you can with the Mounting Set BGM-100 also use SVD-186 on a bench grinder. But here you need to pay attention so that you do not burn the edge. After the initial rough shaping on a bench grinder, you move over to the Tormek machine and give the edge the final sharpness.

Thanks to the patented Turning Tool Setter TTS-100 you keep exactly the same shape and edge angle, making it easy to move from the bench grinder back to the Tormek. Getting the exact same angle. You get the best of two worlds with the same jig system – fastest steel removal and the sharpest edge possible!
