Is your stone wearing out of shape at an alarming rate? UPGRADE YOUR TORMEK!



  • Micro crystalline Tormek wheels specially formulated for woodturners.
  • The grit is harder, tougher and much longer lasting when used on woodturning gouges and scrapers.
  • They cut much quicker
  • The unique microstructure of the grit gives a very fine finish to the steel producing a super quality long lasting edge.
  • They self sharpen so the need for dressing is minimised giving a wheel with many times the life of the original stone.
