Sharpening Jigs & Jig Packages

The key to the success of the Tormek system is the availability of "a jig for every need".  These jigs make the sharpening process simple, accurate and repeatable, minimising the time taken when sharpening, reducing the amount of material removed from the tool's edge and hence prolonging the life of your tools.  In the section, below, you can choose any of the Tormek jigs as single items , or benefit from purchasing a package of jigs and accessories designed to enable you to get the most out of your sharpening system, whatever branch of woodwork you pursue.

As a Tormek user you will enjoy excellent sharpening performance from your system: however you will be getting your tools wet and that can mean the risk of corrosion, either of the tools sharpened or of those that may come into contact with the water or even a damp atmosphere.  Luckily, Shield Technology have come up with an excellent range of anti-corrosion products including a honing fluid, containing active corrosion inhibitors, which is fully compatible with the Tormek system.  Maybe this is the one accessory that Tormek themselves forgot - make sure you don't.  Click here to find out more.
