The Tormek TT-50 Diamond Truing Tool has been redesigned.
This new design is made from cast zinc which minimises the play and improves the precision and quality of the tool.
With this unique tool, Tormek TT-50, you can true and dress your grindstone exactly round and flat. It mounts and locks instantly on the Tormek Universal Support. The tool is guided by the Universal Support, which also guides the jigs. This ensures that the stone surface is always parallel to the tool fitted in the jig.
Benefits compared with our existing ADV-50D and other tools on the market
1. Easy feeding across the stone
You can conveniently and without pressing with your thumbs feed the diamond cutter across the stone. You achieve an even feeding by alternately turning the two knobs with both your hands. The feed can be made in both directions.
Thanks to the controlled feed, you get an even and flat stone surface with no ridges. There is no need to flatten afterwards with the Stone Grader SP?650. The slower you feed, the finer the surface you will achieve. A traverse time of 90 seconds across the stone gives you a good finish with hardly any visible grooves.
2. Controlled cutting depth
The cutting depth is set exactly by the Micro Adjust on the Universal Support. New Universal Supports will have a scale with increments for each 0,25 mm or 0,01″. You can also use your existing Micro Adjust, which has no scale. A cutting depth of 0,25 mm or 0,01″ corresponds to a sixth of a full turn.
3. Increased steel removal
With a higher feed speed across the stone (approximately 30 seconds instead of 90 seconds) the surface will have pronounced grooves, which will cause the stone to grind faster. This is beneficial, when sharpening or shaping tools in hard steel with a large bevel area, e.g. turning skew chisels and electric jointer/planer blades.
Easy to use
The mounting and use of this latest Tormek innovation is very easy and straightforward as you can see in this instruction, which comes with the tool.
For existing Tormek owners
If you have an older machine, which has no Micro Adjust on the Universal Support, you can retrofit the new Universal Support with Micro Adjust, US-105. You can also use the existing Universal Support, but this is less convenient.
The new Universal Support with Micro Adjust is also a great advantage when using the Tormek jigs.
If you have the existing Truing Tool ADV-50D you can purchase the TT-50 without the diamond cutting tip at a reduced price and mount your existing diamond cutting tip. Ask your Tormek dealer for the TT-50U.
