Tormek SVA-170 Axe Jig

Tormek Tool Rest SVD-110
Features
SVA-170 Axe Jig With the Tormek Axe Jig SVA-170 you will be surprised to see how sharp you can get an axe. The jig firmly supports the axe, and enable you to sharpen it with a constant edge angle. The rotation of the stone presses the axe firmly into the jig and enhances the power from your hand, giving the edge a suitable grinding pressure onto the stone. You will not get any snags into the stone, which can easily occur if you grind free hand towards the grinding direction. When using a high-speed dry grinder, it is easy to burn the edge and destroy the axe, with Tormek there is no such risk, the water continuously cools the edge. Straight or curved edges Since the head of the axe is supported freely on the rubber lined stop you can follow the shape of the edge, straight or curved. A forestry hatchet has a curved edge while a carpenter’s axe can have an almost straight edge. Edge angles to suit your work Choose the edge angle that is best suited for your type of axe. An all-round axe for sport and leisure has a larger edge angle than a carpenter’s axe. A splitting axe must have an even larger edge angle. You can choose to sharpen the carpenter’s axe asymmetrically with a larger grinding bevel on the left side (if you are right-handed). The axe will then cut more easily since the cutting force is closer to the cutting direction.
