Tormek SVS-50 Multi Jig
Tormek SVS-50 Multi Jig This is a very comprehensive jig which can be used equally well for turning and carving tools. There are two holders provided, one for turners’ skew chisels, either oval or square section, from 13mm to 35mm wide, and the other for carvers’ skew chisels, parting tools, roughing gouges and wide carving gouges up to 50mm wide. The jig is clamped to the tool and the angle is set by re-positioning the universal support in the horizontal base.
The closed seat
The closed seat has been developed for the precision sharpening of square and skew chisels for woodturning and woodcarving. Since the chisel is mounted in the centre of the seat, you only need to mount the tool once for grinding both bevels. When one side is ready, you simply turn the jig upside down and sharpen the other side until they are symmetrical.
Due to the patented design, this jig can also sharpen oval section skews. The jig aligns the skew so that it is parallel with the universal support.
The open seat
The open seat, where the tool is fixed with a top screw (5), is used for tools which have the edge ground square across the shank, such as parting tools, roughing gouges and wide carving gouges. The seats are mounted with a bottom screw (6), which also locks the chosen skew angle. A scale on each seat shows the skew angle.
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.
