Additionally, the T-3 improves accuracy and safety when sharpening wood chisels and plane irons thanks to the Square Edge Jig SE-76, which is used for accurately shaping and sharpening the edge.
Ideal for sharpening woodworking hand tools, knives, and scissors.
Wet Grinding Increases Tool Life
The slow-speed, wet grindstone of the Tormek T-3 uses less friction than a dry grinder and won't remove as much material from the tool during sharpening, giving you a sharp, clean result and a longer-lasting edge. Unlike with dry grinding, you won't have to worry about burr build-up, overheating, or the need for frequent sharpening.
Purpose-Designed Jigs for Perfect Control
With 11 jigs available for most types of wood-working tools, knives, and industrial tools, the Tormek T-3 maintains the precise edge and angle for each specific tool. It removes only a fraction of the steel, guiding your tools for accurate and efficient control of the shape and edge angle.
The Tormek T-3 comes with a square-edge jig for chisels and plane blades, and there are additional jigs available for knives, scissors, axes, gouges, and more.
Aligns a wood chisel automatically parallel to the Universal Support.
The included SE-76 Square Edge Jig is ideal for quickly clamping and holding chisels, plane irons, and even short and tapered chisels (like Japanese chisels) for accurate sharpening. Conventional jigs require that you align the tool in the jig with two mounting screws, a time-consuming process that results in loss of accuracy. The new Tormek Square Edge jig solves this problem by squarely lining up the chisel at 90 degrees each time--without any adjustments. This is achieved because the jig automatically aligns the chisel to its flat, machined face.
The SE-76 jig can handle blades up to 76 millimeters or 3 inches in width, and it includes safety stops, which prevent tools from slipping off the stone.
The Universal Support incorporates a micro adjust for fine setting.
The Universal Support mounts vertically or horizontally to the base of the Tormek T-3. Simply raise and lower the Universal Support with the help of the AngleMaster to achieve the desired sharpening angle, or mount it horizontally for honing away from the edge. Honing on the leather honing wheel can be performed with or without the SE-76 jig and with the Universal Support as a tool rest.
Grinds your tool to any desired edge angle from 10° to 75°. View larger.
Regardless of wear and tear on the grindstone, the included AngleMaster will help you achieve the exact angle you need every time. With a range of 10 to 75 degrees, the AngleMaster allows you to set the angle of the jig to the grindstone, and it can also measure the existing edge angle of a tool.
Stone Grader Adds Versatility for Sharpening and Polishing
The Tormek T-3 Original Grindstone can be dressed to 220 grit or 1,000 grit for versatility. The stone comes with a 220-grit surface, and the included Stone Grader allows you to quickly and easily change the surface to 1,000 grit for fine polishing. Since you won't have to change the setting of the jig or the stone itself, the Stone Grader allows you to perform both efficient steel removal and a fine finish with one stone.
The stone grinds very effectively and gives a fine finish to the tool.
The Tormek T-3 uses an 8-inch by 1-5/8-inch stone wheel, giving you a wide and durable surface for sharpening. The powerful, heavy-duty motor turns the wheel at 120 rpm and can be run for up to 30 minutes every hour. For further convenience, the T-3's stainless steel shaft with E-Z Lock feature means you can remove the grindstone without tools.
Clean and Safe Sharpening
The T-3's advanced water trough comes with an enlarged standard lip for maximum water collection. It also includes an embedded magnet to collect steel particles and a removable water chute for long tools. Because steel particles are deposited into the water trough, and wet-grinding doesn't create grinding dust, there is no need to worry about air pollutants. The low speed also eliminates sparks and allows you to have complete control of the tool.
The Tormek T-3 Water-Cooled Sharpening System is backed by a manufacturer's seven-year limited warranty.
