The Tormek way of sharpening
The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. The tools are guided in jigs – you remove only a small fraction of the steel at on sharpening, which makes it faster and extra benefit is that your tools last longer. You can shape the tool exactly to your needs. Even such complicated shapes as fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radiused edge are easily sharpened. Once the shape is created, you can resharpen the edge in less than a minute. The water cooled slow speed grindstone is in harmony with the physical laws governing the steel tool – the edge does not overheat and lose its hardness.The water lubricated grindstone and the final power honing on the leather honing wheelwork in the same way as benchstone sharpening except that the motorized process speeds up the work. The leather wheel is impregnated with honing compound and polishes the edge to a razor sharpness.No grinding dust is produced to pollute the air. The steel particles are deposited into the water trough.The Tormek method is safe. At the low speed, you can fully control the sharpening. Since no sparks are produced, there is no risk to your eyes and you can safely use the machine in areas of high fire risk.
