Instructor: Bill S.A
This class is an introduction to the Tormek, a sharpening system based on low-speed, water-cooled grinding wheel. The system is easy to learn and can yields very sharp tools even in the hands of a novice. During this hands-on class, students will hollow-ground flat blades on the Tormek wheel, followed by power-stropping on the Tormek stropping wheel . We will run down sharpening various blades for different types of planes and chisels. Please feel free to bring your own chisels or plane blades to practice on.
