Tormek's T-7 model improves on the accuracy and safety of its predecessor the T-2006 thanks to two new innovations - a Square Edge Jig and a Truing and Dressing Tool with screw feed. These developments also make the sharpening more user friendly.
Conventional jigs on the market require that you align the tool in the jig with mounting screws which is time consuming and you lose the exact repeatability at each sharpening. The new Tormek Square Edge jig solves this problem and the chisel will be ground square, 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. The other development is a Truing and Dressing Tool TT-50 with screw feed. This enables the user to keep the stone in perfect condition, which is essential for a perfectly sharpened edge.
A ten year warranty applies to all customers including industrial users. This is possible due to the improved coating of the housing, stainless steel main shaft and a powerful, industrial AC motor.
