The Leather Honing Wheel should last indefinitely, but accidents do happen and if you cut yours by forgetting to always work with the wheel turning away from the edge, here is the original factory replacement.
Choose Honing Wheel for T-7 or T-3 in the drop down box below.
With the Tormek EzyLock, which is both a nut and a washer, you need no tools for mounting and dismounting the stone. The special pitch on the left hand thread causes the rotation of the wheel to tighten the nut to the right torque.
Turn the Ezylock anticlockwise by hand and the grindstone will automatically tighten during the first sharpening. You need no tools.
When dismounting, you turn the stone clockwise and the EzyLock will automatically become loose.
This construction also makes it very easy to change grindstones, from the standard aluminum oxide to the new specialty stones (Blackstone Silicon for High Speed Steel and the 4000 Grit Japanese Waterstone).
The shaft, washer and EzyLock are all made of stainless steel.
Choose shaft for Tormek T-7 (also fits Tormek 2000 and all older models with 250 mm (10") stone) or shaft for T-3 (also fits tormek 1200) in the drop down box below.
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 Tormek Japanese Waterstone is 4000 grit and delivers a mirror finish with hardly any visible marks. Since it is made to create the finest surface, it has a limited steel removal capacity and cannot be used for shaping a tool.
It excels at sharpening hand tools like carving tools, knives, scissors, plane irons and wood chisels where a minimum of steel removal is needed and a superior surface finish is demanded. Its unique composition gives the stone an extremely long life. Since the surface left by the Japanese Waterstone is so fine, we do not recommend honing afterwards on the leather honing wheel.
You should clean the stone surface of steel particles every minute or so with the fine side of the Stone Grader SP-650. Do not use the coarse side of the Stone Grader on the Japanese Waterstone.
