Tormek SVD-186 R Gouge Jig
SVD-186 R for woodturning tools
You get an exact replication of both the shape and edge angle on your bowl gouges and spindle gouges, so you can be sure that the tool will behave in the same predictable way on the lathe after every sharpening. Used correctly and together with your Tormek tool sharpener, there is no alternative method that can give you faster or sharper results.
The jig can be set for various lengths of the side bevel. Create your own profile "recipe" or choose one of the recommended ones from the profile selection chart in the instructions.
You can also can also sharpen your turning cutters with SVD-186 R. Mount your cutter onto the special shaft that is included with the jig, and you get a controlled sharpening. Watch the film to see how it works!
Wet grinding on your Tormek gives you a very sharp edge that will last much longer. A really sharp gouge cuts easily and will give the wood a very fine surface, often there is no need for sanding.
