The Tormek Instruction box, which contains a 1 hour 20 minutes DVD and a handbook shows you how to shape and sharpen all your turning tools. The DVD is made by Jeff Farris, a highly experienced USA woodturning instructor and the handbook is written by Torgny Jansson, the inventor of the Tormek Sharpening System. In the DVD Jeff Farris puts focus on the most important tools – which also are the most difficult to sharpen – the spindle gouge, the bowl gouge and the skew.
