...the next level in water cooled sharpening development
Tormek now launches three new diamond wheels and a Multi Base for edge tool sharpening. Both the Multi Base and Diamond Wheels are designed for use with the Tormek Water Cooled Sharpening System and will give woodworkers the perfect condition for always having sharp tools in their work. The new diamond wheels offer an exceptional durability plus the ability to sharpen on the side as well as the periphery. The new Multi Base allows sharpening on the side of the diamond wheels and will leave a completely flat bevel that is preferred in some applications.
Håkan Persson, the Tormek CEO states: “We are proud to now offer our users the opportunity to sharpen with diamond, the world’s hardest material. Tormek’s low speed sharpening makes it ideal to use diamond for edge tool sharpening since no heat occurs. We believe that the diamond wheels together with the new Multi Base will make sharpening even easier for many of our dedicated Tormek users.”
Tormek’s new diamond wheels come in three different grades; Coarse, Fine and Extra Fine. The quality of the diamond surface provides a high and constant sharpening ability and a grinding wheel that always retain the full size diameter. Users who frequently sharpen the same tool will benefit greatly from this feature as it simplifies both setting and sharpening.
Diamond is the world’s hardest material and almost twice as hard as cubic boron nitride (CBN), which is another commonly used abrasive. The diamond’s extreme hardness and durability make it the optimal material for sharpening.
Another great aspect of Tormek’s diamond wheels is that the wheels have a diamond layer on the side, perfect for the sharpening of small carving tools such as carving gouges and V-tools plus plane irons, wood chisels and knives. The result is a bevel edge with a completely flat surface, instead of a hollow grind.
When sharpening on the side of the Diamond Wheels using the new Multi Base MB-100, the user always has support and control using the Tormek jigs. To sharpen either with or without water is another detail which has been made
possible with the new diamond wheels. However, Tormek always recommends sharpening with water as it prolongs the life of the wheel and gives a better result.
Tormek’s Diamond Wheels are complementary to their water cooled sharpening system and will not replace Tormek’s Original Grindstone. Each of the Tormek Diamond Wheels is suitable for all types of material, incl. steel, ceramic and carbide.
The Diamond Wheels and the Multi Base will be available from Tormek retailers in June 2018.
Tormek Diamond Wheels are EU Design pending.
