Watch this video and see how the SE-76 Square Edge Jig works. It shows how to position the tool in the jig, how to use the safety stops and how to set the angle with the AngleMaster WM-200 or by colouring the bevel. Do not forget to hone away the burr on the leather honing wheel and you will have a perfect edge.
The lower clamp has a ridge in the centre enabling shorter tools with a tapered shank to be firmly mounted, e.g. Japanese chisels. The upper base, which lines up the tool, is designed so the clamping pressure is distributed to the ends and the tool mounts firmly without a heavy tightening of the knobs.
The edge angle is set with the Micro Adjust (3) on the Universal Support (4).
There are two safety stops to prevent the tool from slipping off the stone when sharpening. One inner stop (1) to be positioned according to the width of the tool and one outer stop (2) mounted on the end of the Universal Support.
With the Tormek jig for square edges, SE-76, you can sharpen your wood chisels and plane irons to the highest sharpness. The jig aligns the chisel parallel to the grindstone.
This unique construction automatically lines up the chisel to its upper and flat side in the jig. Combined with a side shoulder in the jig, you can position the tool correctly at 90°.
A practical detail is the two safety stops that prevent the tool from gliding off the grindstone. They make it possible to sharpen relaxed and efficient using the whole width of the stone without risking hurting your fingers.
The jig fits wood chisels and plane irons up to 76 mm (3"). It can also handle chisels with a tapered shank.
