Tormek Square Edge Jig.
(Angle exaggerated for clarity.)
Safety stops (1) prevent the tool from sliding off the grindstone and scrape your knuckles.
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.
The new T-3 model improves the accuracy and safety when sharpening wood chisels and plane irons thanks to the Square Edge Jig SE-76, which is used at the shaping and sharpening of the edge. Honing on the leather honing wheel is carried out without the jig and with the Universal Support as a tool rest.
Conventional jigs on the market require that you align the tool in the jig with two mounting screws which is time consuming and you lose the exact repeatability when re-sharpening. The new Tormek Square Edge jig solves this problem and the chisel will be lined up squarely, i.e. at 90 degrees, each time without any adjustments. This is achieved because the jig automatically aligns the chisel to its flat, machined face.
Another benefit is that the SE-76 can also clamp short and tapered tools firmly, e.g. Japanese chisels. The jig copes with blades up to 76 mm or 3" width.
The new Square Edge Jig SE-76 has safety stops, which prevent the tool from slipping off the stone, which can hurt your fingers.
