Tormek

The Tormek Honing Compound is used on the leather honing wheels. Grain averages 3 microns (roughly 8000 grit). This will polish the edge of tools and knives after using the Tormek Grindstone.

One application lasts for 5–10 tools. Then re-impregnate the honing wheel with a few drops of oil and apply fresh honing compound. Work the honing compound into the leather. Do not let the compound dry, apply more oil if necessary.

Using the Honing Compound
When new, impregnate the leather with light machine oil. This will soften the leather and cause the honing compound to penetrate the leather.
Apply a thin string of the honing compound before starting the machine. Rotate the wheel by hand.
Start the machine and distribute the compound by pressing a tool gently against the wheel. Let the compound penetrate the leather.
Always hone away from the edge!
If you hone towards the edge, it cuts into the wheel!
Dear Mr. Carmona: From the first time I spoke to you by telephone, I have been greatly impressed by your willingness, even your eagerness to take your time from your own personal activities to assist me. I am awed by your extensive knowledge and work in a field that is such a benefit to so many people in so many kind of activities. Your website is a real asset, and a testimony to your desire to be helpful. I wish to thank you again for your kindness as well as your fervor in the way your company deals with interested parties, even those who may purchase nothing, or only small items, as I have done.
