Tormek: Sharp Solutions for Sharpening Tools
Affinity carries Tormek sharpening solutions because they’re an industry leader in innovation and technology. With the wide range of unique and patented Tormek jigs and machines, you can sharpen practically any type of edge tool. Tormek is dedicated to developing sharpening systems through innovative solutions. The key word when sharpening with Tormek is repeatability. You can shape the tool exactly to your needs. Even complicated shapes such as fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radiused edge are easily sharpened. This means that when it’s time to sharpen your tool next time you can easily repeat the previous shape.
Tormek equipment and tools are designed to avoid those all too familiar issues that you run into with other sharpening technologies. Thanks to the low speed on all of their machines, there is no risk that the edge becomes overheated and loses its hardness. On the Tormek T-4 and T-8, the edge is continuously cooled with water during the sharpening. On the Tormek T-2, the fine-grained diamond wheel and slow rotation prevent the edge from becoming overheated. The industrial Tormek motor maintains an ideal RPM, regardless of load. The reliable self-adjusting gear design ensures you always get the right torque, without excessive force and wear to the system. Sometimes power comes at the detriment of the life of the sharpening equipment, but Tormek builds from materials meant to last.
The common denominator amongst Tormek users is commitment to their work, combined with the understanding that sharp tools are the key to their desired result. Many new Tormek users are surprised to see the difference they get in their results when using an edge sharpened and honed on a Tormek. Others appreciate the amount of time they save to get their desired sharpness, thanks to the motor doing the job, which is also gentle on the wrists and shoulders. No matter your experience with Tormek, the collection of equipment available on Affinity help to ensure every need you have is fulfilled to a pristine quality.
