This patented Turning Tool Setter perfects the Tormek Sharpening System for woodturning tools. Three factors determine the shape of a gouge or a skew; by controlling them and repeating them at each sharpening you will get an exact replication of the shape every time. Since a tool can have an unlimited number of combinations of shapes and edge angles, a new tool has a more or less different shape compared to any of the shapes on the chart.
For detailed instructions on shaping and sharpening gouges and skews, see the chapters SVD-185 and SVS-50 from the Tormek Handbook.
When shaping a large bevel surface such as on a skew chisel with a straight edge, the low grinding pressure slows down the grinding.
Don't loose your templates of jig angles and stone to pivot point distance if it's variable in your setup.
Therefore, you firstly need to shape your tool to one of these geometries; then the following sharpenings will be an easy task and done in less than a minute. The shaping can comprise a change of the skew angle on a chisel or the length of the wings on a gouge as well as a change of the edge angle.
The Turning Tool Setter works equally well when setting the edge angle on the leather honing wheel. This way of working will give you more time for turning and fewer interruptions for shaping and sharpening.
The strength of the Tormek method is in the sharpening, which is carried out with an exact replication of both the shape and the edge angle.
