Bonus Father's Day Gift Idea for the Shelter Dad

From now until June 30th, if you purchase a Tormek T-7, you'll receive a free rotating base (the Tormek RB-180, which sells for $55). With the rotating base, you can swivel the sharpening system 180 degrees to select the perfect position for sharpening.

We purchased a T-7 several years ago for our timber framing shop to help with shop efficiency. Our crew liked it so much that nearly everyone of them went out and bought their own to take home. The T-7 comes with an angle jig, a stone grader, a square-edge jig and a dressing tool. It also comes with a how-to DVD and book. You will be able to sharpen all of your chisels and square edge tools right away, and Tormek makes accessories for nearly every shape and size cutting tool out there. We carry just about all of them.
