Sharpening woodturning tools
SVS-50 together with the Turning Tool Setter
For sharpening woodturning tools, we highly recommend you to use the SVS-50 jig together with the TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter. That way you can exactly replicate the shape and edge angle over and over again. Also, it will save you time since you only remove a minimum amount of steel at each sharpening.
Wet grinding on your Tormek gives you a very sharp edge that will last much longer. A really sharp gouge cuts easily and you will notice it gives the wood a very fine surface, often there is no need for sanding.
Using SVS-50 on a bench grinder
For woodturning tools, if you have a new tool and need to remove a lot of steel in order to change a profile, you can with the mounting set BGM-100 also use SVS-50 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, keep the tool in the jig and move over to the Tormek machine to give the edge the final sharpness.
