Tormek grinders, Japanese water stone wheels for Tormek grinders

Tormek grinders, Japanese water stone wheels for Tormek grinders

Although there are many bench grinders and other sharpening machines on the market, few are intended for wet sharpening. Only wet sharpening machines offer the guarantee that the steel cutting edge will not be overheated in the process and thus have its usefulness reduced. And only Tormek of Sweden has managed to develop a fully rounded system for hand tool users that will meet virtually every sharpening need.

The Tormek T-7 is intended for professional craftsmen and the demanding hobbyist. It comes in a sturdy 3 mm sheet metal housing, has a carrying handle and a heavy-duty 200 W industrial motor. The main shaft is now made of stainless steel.

The Tormek T-3 is intended for the amateur working at home. Its motor is set to run for no more than 30 minutes per hour, and the housing is plastic. With the T-3 you get access to the Tormek high-quality sharpening system at a favourable price and it is ideal for sharpening woodworking hand tools, knives and scissors.

When using your Tormek grinding wheel, make sure:

to empty the water container when the machine is not in use. Otherwise, one side of the stone will absorb water and it will be out of true as it rotates. The wobble can eventually lead to damage to the bearing

The Tormek grinders we sell are intended for the German market. If you want to use them outside Germany read this note on using Tormek grinders outside Germany.

Tormek jig solutions

These fit all Tormek machines with type numbers from 1200 to 1206, 2000 to 2006, and T-3 to T-8. Before ordering jigs here, check what is already included with the machine.


SVM-45 knife jig
For most knives. Width 45 mm (1 3/4 inch). Long knives need to be stiff. Min. blade length 60 mm (2 3/8 inch). The jig rests freely on the universal support so you can follow the curve of the blade.
Also for straight drawknives.
Code 301312CartPrice € 32.90
SVM-00 small knife holder
The new SVM-00 small knife holder from Tormek can handle those really small knife blades which up until now have been difficult to sharpen. Normally they have been sharpened free-hand but every time it was a challenge to get a consistent shape and almost impossible to control the edge angle.

You can now sharpen knives of different shapes for whittling, chip carving and detail work. Even folding pocket knives can be sharpened with perfect control. Since it is the handle of the knife that is mounted in the SVM-00 holder, there is really no limit to how small a blade you can sharpen. Video

Note: The SVM-00 works only in conjunction with the SVM-45 knife jig. Knife in picture NOT included!
Code 301393CartPrice € 27.90
SVM-140 long knife jig
This new knife jig is developed especially for long and flexible knives, eg, filleting knives. Its larger width, 140 mm (5 1/2 inch), stabilizes a long and thin blade and the jig copes with blades longer than 160 mm (6 1/4 inch).
Code 301313CartPrice € 43.90
SVX-150 scissors jig
For scissors and shears. The scissors are mounted in a holder, which slides freely on a support plate so that you can follow the individual convex shape of the scissors. Also for portable electric hand planer blades. The SVX-150 jig comprises a support plate and a holder with two clamps for the scissors. Usually you use only the right clamp. For large scissors and garden shears you use both clamps.
Code 301314CartPrice € 43.90
SVA-170 axe jig
For carving and carpenter’s axes. The head of the axe slides freely on the rubber lined stop so you can follow the shape of an individual edge, straight or curved. The jig comprises a clamp with a rubber lined, wedge-shaped stop, which holds the axe in a fixed position towards the grindstone. The clamp works on the universal support, on which it slides across the stone. The jig is designed so that the rotation of the stone presses the axe firmly into the jig. You only need to hold and guide the axe with your hands. This jig only works with the stone running towards the edge. If necessary, the honing wheel can be removed to allow clearance for the axe handle.
Code 301318CartPrice € 13.90
SVS-38 short tool jig
For straight-shanked tools, such as wood chisels, carving gouges and tools for power carvers. Flanges ensure a 90° positioning of the tools towards the grindstone. Copes with tools down to 45 mm (1 3/4 inch) length and max. width 38 mm (1 1/2).

This patented jig was developed for short woodcarving tools, butt chisels and tools for power carvers. The jig has two parallel flanges running on both sides of the universal support.

The technique achieved with this design ensures that at all times the jig – even when rotated – holds the tool square to the grindstone. This is a great advantage, as you can concentrate fully on how the edge touches the grindstone or the honing wheel without having to worry whether the jig is square to the stone.

SVD-186 gouge jig
For an exact replication of the shape on fingernail shaped turning gouges. Can be set for various lengths of the side bevel. Plus shaft for turning cutters. Also for bent carving gouges and V-tools. Max tool width 36 mm.
Example with hollow gouge
Example with V-tool

Code 301317CartPrice € 69.90
SVS-50 multi jig
For an exact replication of the shape on skew turning chisels with a straight or curved edge. Thanks to a unique design the jig also copes with oval section skews. Also for parting and beading tools and roughing gouges. Straight carving gouges up to 50 mm (2 inch) wide. Max width of skews 32 mm (1 1/4 inch). (Important for owners of an old Tormek: for this accessory to work you need the XB 100 horizontal grip for the universal support!)

SVD-110 tool rest
This tool rest is ideal for the grinding of turning scrapers and special tools for woodcarving, eg, large scorps and inshaves. Also for cabinet scrapers and hollowing tools.

It has a generous surface, 90 x 110 mm (3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch), which permits a safe and steady positioning of the tool towards the stone. The bore is made with a special wedge shape that increases the locking force by 250%. You can lock the tool rest instantly at the chosen angle. This unique design is patented by Tormek.

Code 301315CartPrice € 29.50
SE-77 square edge jig
With the SE-77 square edge jig it is easy to set your wood chisels and plane irons for sharpening to a square corner. The design gives you the best conditions for a successful sharpening with the highest precision over the final result. You can also set the jig for a slightly convex shape.
The SE-77 square edge jig is a further development of the SE-76 jig. It has been provided with an adjustable side that can be set with the help of two smaller knobs, which allows fine tuning if needed. This can be required if the tool is not exactly square to the stone, is very narrow, or if the steel is slightly twisted. The setting for fine adjustment is done in seconds by loosening one of the smaller adjustment knobs and tightening the other.
The jig's construction also makes it possible to position and sharpen tapered chisels, eg, Japanese chisels. The safety stops keep the jig securely on the universal support and prevent the tool from sliding off the grindstone, so there is no risk of injury to your fingers when sharpening. The jig fits wood chisels and plane irons up to 77 mm (3") width and 9 mm thickness.

DC-250 Tormek 360 grit grade diamond wheel for Tormek T8

Thanks to the constant diameter of the wheel, it offers the ability to sharpen on the side as well as the periphery. Side sharpening is perfect for small carving tools such as carving gouges and V-tools plus plane irons, wood chisels and knives. The result is a bevel edge with a completely flat instead of a hollow surface.

MB-100 multi base – made for Tormek diamond wheels

With the MB-100 multi base you can sharpen on the side of the Tormek diamond wheels, thus creating a completely flat bevel that is preferable in some applications.

Note: The MB-100 is designed for use with Tormek diamond wheels only. It is not suitable for grinding stones as they would require truing which is hardly possible on the side.

Tormek accessories

These fit all Tormek machines with type numbers from 1200 to 1206, 2000 to 2006, and T-3 to T-7. Before ordering jigs here, check what is already included with the machine.


RB-180 rotating base
Rotate your Tormek!
Some tools are best sharpened with the stone running towards the edge and other tools should have the stone running away from the edge. With the new Tormek RB-180 rotating base you can easily rotate the machine 180° to select the ideal sharpening direction. It also makes it simple to switch from sharpening to honing!

A priority during the design process has been to make the RB-180 as thin as possible in order not to affect the working height. The rubber feet ensure it remains steady during sharpening. The RB-180 will fit the Tormek T-7 and T-4, the 2000 and 1200 series plus the SA-250, T-3 and N-1500.
Code 301344CartPrice € 43.90
TT-50 truing tool
Trues the grindstone exactly round and flat. Guided by the universal support which also guides the jigs. Screw feed with dual knobs for smooth feed across the stone. The cutting depth can be set within 0.25 mm (0.01 inch).

You can conveniently and without pressing with your thumbs feed the diamond cutter across the stone. You achieve an even feeding by alternately turning the two knobs with both hands. The feed can be made in both directions. Thanks to the controlled feed, you get an even and flat stone surface with no ridges. There is no need to flatten afterwards with the SP-650 stone grader. The slower you feed, the finer the surface you will achieve. A traverse time of 90 seconds across the stone gives you a good finish with hardly any visible grooves.

The cutting depth is set exactly by the micro adjust on the universal support. New universal supports will have a scale with increments of both 0.25 mm or 0.01 inch You can also use your existing micro adjust that has no scale. A cutting depth of 0.25 mm or 0.01 inch corresponds to a sixth of a full turn.

With a higher feed speed across the stone (approx. 30 instead of 90 seconds) the surface will have pronounced grooves, which will cause the stone to grind faster. This is beneficial when sharpening or shaping tools in hard steel with a large bevel area, eg, skew turning chisels and electric jointer/planer blades.

The mounting and use of this latest Tormek innovation is very easy and straightforward as you can see in the instructions included with the tool.

Code 301325CartPrice € 35.50
SP-650 stone grader
For changing the properties of the grindstone. The fine side grades the stone for a 1000 grit finish. The coarse side of the grader reverses the stone to normal fast grinding. Activates a glazed stone.

The Tormek grindstone is constructed so that with the stone grader it can be treated to change its property from fast grinding to fine grinding, ie, sharpening. This has obvious advantages. You can make both the first fast grinding and the sharpening on the same grindstone and the same grinding machine and with the same setting of the jig. Besides being a very fast method, this achieves a perfect edge as the fine grinding is done in exactly the same position as the first fast grinding.

The grading of the grindstone is made by pressing the fine side of the stone grader onto the grindstone, which makes it work as a fine grit stone (approx. 1000 grit). When pressing the coarse side onto the grindstone, the smoothened surface is returned to its normal condition (220 grit). This process does not produce excessive wear of the grindstone and can be repeated any number of times.
Code 301310CartPrice € 19.95
LA-120 profiled leather honing wheel
For honing and polishing the inside of turning gouges, carving gouges and V-tools. With exchangeable profiles. Mounts outside the standard honing wheel. This wheel has exchangeable leather discs so you can easily replace a disc with a worn tip.
The two standard discs have a radius of 3 mm (1/8 inch) and a 60° tip. Discs with alternative, narrower profiles are available as optional extras.
Code 301306CartPrice € 45.00

The set of optional extra discs have a radius of 2 mm (3/32 inch) and a 45° tip. These smaller disc profiles permit the honing of small carving tools with very narrow profiles. The diameter of the larger wheel has been increased from 100 mm (4 inch) to 120 mm (4 3/4 inch), which speeds up the honing process.

This design has a larger and also deeper space between the two profiles compared to the previous LA-100, and therefore it permits inside honing of tools with wide and deep profiles.

You can fit the LA-120 outside your existing LA-100 (or the LA-100 outside the LA-120) and use two discs on the same machine. You can also mount double LA-120 wheels, one with standard profiles and one with set of narrow discs, and thus have access to four different profiles at the same time.
