The attachment comprises support (1), blade holder (2) and allen key (3). In this attachment the tool is guided precisely and ground flat along its whole length to a pre-set fixed depth. This is not the case with the other Tormek jigs, where your hand decides where the grinding occurs and the depth of grinding. It is important that the grinding angle is set with great accuracy. If you follow the detailed step by step instructions, you can have great results.

Made in Sweden.

Q. Can the Planer Blade Attachment be used to sharpen shorter jointer knives?

A. Purchasing the Tormek Planer Blade Attachment may be overkill for these short knives if that is your only use. If that is all I had to sharpen with the attachment, I would have a hard time justifying the purchase. I do consider it the best way to sharpen jointer and planer knives with the Tormek. If you have a planer and a jointer, the long term savings can be quite substantial.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
