Turning Tool Sharpening Setter Tormek TTS-100


One of the toughest things for serious woodworkers is keeping their specialized precision cutting and wood turning tools, like fingernail gouges and skews, sharp to the perfect angle. Tormek makes this difficult process much easier with this Turning Tool Angle Setter. In fact, this handy tool makes the process simple, and dare we say, fun. The curved edges of your wood turning tools will come out sharper than ever, at the perfect angle. The built-in geometries make setting the perfect shape a snap, so when you sharpen, you’re really sharpening, and not shaping. This not only makes for a better edge, but it prolongs tool life as well. The turning tool setter works with our Tormek sharpening systems and the SVD-185 and SVS-50 jigs, but customers report it also works on the Grizzly and Bench Grinder Systems as well. If you have wood turning tools you’d like to keep sharp, this turning tool setter is a must-have accessory.

Tormek TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter creates instant replication of the geometries on turning gouges and skews when using the SVD-185 Gouge Jig and the SVS-50 Multi Jig. It has built in edge geometries and works on any stone diameter. This patented Turning Tool Setter perfects the Tormek Sharpening System for woodturning tools. It enables you to exactly create and replicate the edge on your bowl and spindle gouges as well as on your flat or oval skews with either a straight or a curved edge. The Setter works in conjunction with the Gouge Jig SVD-185 and the Multi Jig SVS-50. The strength of the TTS-100 Setter is that it works irrespectively of the stone diameter. You always get exactly the same edge angle – even as the stone de­creases in diameter. The Turning Tool Setter works equally well when setting the edge angle on the leather honing wheel.
