Tormek TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter

Tormek TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter
This patented perfects the Tormek Sharpening System for woodturning tools. It enables you to exactly create and replicate the edge on your bowl and spindle gouges as well as on your or oval skews with either a straight or a curved edge. The setter works in conjunction with Tormeks Gouge Jig and Multi Jig. The Turning Tool Setter, when used with the Universal Gouge Jig on a Tormek Super Grind, reduces the process of grinding and honing a bowl gouge down to a 60-second process. The process is so accurate youll find yourself removing the absolute minimum amount of steel to get a perfect edge. Bowl gouges ( to 1″ diameter.) can be ground to either 45 degrees or degrees and spindle gouges to a 30 degrees fingernail profile. The TTS will also work with skews up to 1-1/4″ wide, either flat or curved edge, when used with the Multi Jig. Thanks to the exact settings at each sharpening, you can just touch up the edge and the work is done in seconds. You do not shap

Question by Bill: are there any woodworking/Carpentry type jobs in the Military?
I do woodworking as a side hobby. I usually make Doors, cabinets and even smaller stuff like carts and tables. I was wondering if the military has any jobs relating to this.

    Tormek TTS-100 setter, December 7, 2010

    This review is from: Tormek TTS-100 Turning Tool Setter (Tools & Home Improvement)

    The TTS 100 is used to set the amount of tool projection, and to set the distance of the universal support from the grindstone. This device is extremely clever and will set the correct tool angle, no matter how much the diameter of the stone decreases through wear.

    I’m still amazed by the consistency of the profile you can achieve using the TTS 100 and the jigs. The honed edge is incredibly fine and I have no doubt that it lasts far longer and gives a much cleaner cut than the wire type of edge you get using a dry grinder. Coupled to this dramatic improvement in edge quality is the not insignificant fact that the tools will last far longer, as the sharpening process is so much less aggressive.

    Very simple to use and set up, an essential Tormek accessory, worth every penny to a serious tool user.

    The Army has 21W
    The Navy has BU
    The Marines dont really have a Carpentry MOS (as the Navy SeeBees provide a majority of the civil engineering needs to the Marines) but they do have some repair technicians that sometimes receive training in Carpentry and Woodworking
    The Air Force has 3E3X1 which is their equivalent of BU

    I have worked with BU’s and alot can go to special schools specifically for woodworking. A guy in my Battalion went to this school and came back a woodworking master. Got out, went to work at a retail store and supplemented his Income with his wood products (Doors, Shelves, Clocks, Pens, Art even)

    As the poster below me stated, the Navy has the BU (Builder) rate, which is part of the SeaBees. The rate of DC (Damage Control Man) also does a lot of carpentry-type work.

    BU in the Navy, part of the SeaBees. but it’s more large scale projects, not smaller furniture items.

    that being said many bases we have been on have had a fairly extensive woodworking Hobby shop on base, compete with tools, classes and just plain work space to do your own thing.

    Yes. Carpentry is an actual MOS. However, I doubt you will make small items. They do framing for new building.

    I was in the process of reclassing to Carpenter in the Reserves.
