The Tormek SVD-186 is a refinement of their popular gouge jig SVD-185 which it replaces.
The Tormek gouge jig allows an exact repetition of the shape and edge angle. The most significant change from a user perspective is the easy and precise click setting and the improved locking disc, which greatly ease the setting. The new version also handles wider tools.
The SVD-186 now fits up to 36 mm (13/8”) wide tools, compared with its predecessor that only handled 25 mm (1”). The new jig also has an improved locking disc, which greatly simplifies the fixing of gouges of all sizes. In addition, SVD-186 has a shortened lower sleeve that allows an easier working with Tormek’s smaller machine models T-4 and T-3.
The simple and precise click setting with a locking screw ensures a fixed position, so that an Allen Key is no longer needed when setting the jig!
