Square Edge Jig For plane irons and wood chisels. Max tool width 77 mm (3″), max tool thickness 9 mm (3/8″). Safety stops prevent the tool from slipping off the stone.
Stone Grader The fine side grades the stone for a 1000 grit finish. The coarse side of the grader reverses the stone to normal fast grinding. Activates a glazed stone.

NVR Switch Providing safety in the event of an interruption of power.
Water Chute for Long Tools For long tools that drip water over the edge of the lip (like chef’s knives and planer blades), you can add the water chute. Set the widest edge of the chute onto the tab in the middle of the lip of the trough and the water chute will direct the water back into the trough from even the longest tools.
Corrosion Protection The sturdy steel housing on Tormek T-7 is treated with an Electrodeposition (ED) coating which provides a superior corrosion protection and forms the foundation for the tough powder coat paint finish.
Magnet Cleans the Stone of Steel Particles
The water trough incorporates a strong magnet, which attracts the steel particles worn from the tools being sharpened. This keeps your stone clean and cutting more freely.
