The TORMEK Stone Grader is used to grade the Grindstone to a finer surface. The TORMEK Grindstone and the Tormek Blackstone Silicon both have a normal grit rating of 220 with a grain size is 0.06 mm (0.0024"). Use the Stone grader to change to a 1000 grit suitable for fine finish grinding/sharpening
Use the other side of the grader to return the stone to its 220 grit.
The Advanced Water Trough AWT-250 has an enlarged standard lip which ensures that your workbench stays free from water.
Magnet Cleans the Stone of Steel Particles
The water trough incorporates a strong magnet, which attracts the steel particles ground from the tools being sharpened. This keeps your stone clean and cutting more freely. These small steel particles are otherwise pressed into the stone surface and can disturb the sharpening. When cleaning the water trough, you’ll find that most of the steel will be located right on the magnet. It can be wiped off the water trough with a paper towel or rag.
Water Chute for Long Tools
For long tools that drip water over the edge of the lip (like chef’s knives and planer blades), just add the water chute. It attaches easily and directs the water back into the trough.
Tilt Shoes Control the Water Flow
Two Tilt Shoes are supplied with the AWT-250. You can use them to raise the honing wheel side of the machine so the water follows the tool towards the outside of the stone and runs back into the water trough. You minimize the water dripping onto the housing. This is an advantage especially when sharpening wide tools. When not required they can be stored magnetically under the machine.
Fits Tormek T-7, Tormek 2000 and all older models with 250 mm (10") stone.
The versatile TORMEK Universal Support is the basis of the TORMEK system. It is made of 12 mm (approx. 1/2") round steel and has a double mounting for maximum stability. The Universal Support incorporates a micro adjust for exact and fast fine setting.
