Take control of your profiles
Regardless of the type of sharpening machine you use, the most difficult part of sharpening woodturning tools is accurately repeating the shape and sharpening angle. The BGM-100 Bench Grinder Mounting Set allows you to use the SVD-186 R Gouge Jig, SVS-50 Multi Jig, SVD-110 Tool Rest and TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter on your bench grinder. This allows you to easily repeat your sharpening, over and over again.
The Tormek water-cooled sharpening system is superior when it comes to sharpening virtually any tool in your workshop. That said, it’s no secret that major reshaping of a woodturning tool can be done faster on a bench grinder. Some woodturners who are dedicated Tormek users also have access to a bench grinder and use it together with the BGM-100 Bench Grinder Mounting Set for the first rough shaping operation.
With or without a Tormek machine
With the BGM-100 Bench Grinder Mounting Set, you can use the precise Tormek jigs throughout the grinding process. You no longer need to rely on trial and error to find the right shape using your bench grinder. Thanks to the TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter, you can quickly grind away material on the bench grinder and then move to your Tormek machine – without changing the jig settings – for the final sharpening and honing.
If you don’t yet have a Tormek machine, you can still take advantage of Tormek’s precise jig system on your bench grinder and easily create the desired shape and angle. The principle of setting the shape and sharpening angle is the same no matter which machine you use. If you later decide to expand your workshop to include a Tormek, then you already have the jigs you need for your woodturning tools.
