What Makes the Thorvie AV-40 Sharpening System The Industry Leader in Tool Sharpening?
The Thorvie AV-40 Sharpening System will sharpen saw blades, face, top and side grind, ranging from 1-7/8″ to 30″ diameter.
It will sharpen many different cutting tools such as raised panel cutters and profile cutters, and anti-kickback router bits and shaper cutters without motor interference, something few saw blade grinders can offer.
The Thorvie AV-40 Sharpening System motor maintains a wheel RPM of 3450, which is essential when grinding carbide tooling. Other carbide saw grinders on the market actually slow down or stop the wheel when grinding, which is why Thorvie International manufactures a modified version of the AV-40 motor designed to be used as a replacement on our competitor’s equipment. (220 volt 50hz motor available for foreign countries)
The AV-40 bearing assembly has four bearings, while many other grinders typically only have three. This allows the Thorvie AV-40 saw blade and tool holder to give you precision grinding performance as the saddle bearing assembly is solid with no play whatsoever.
Compared to other systems, the Thorvie AV-40 Sharpening System is far less expensive. Plus, when buying manufacturer direct from Thorvie International you’ll save 40% or more!
With its compact size, it takes up minimal bench space and can serve as an excellent mobile unit. The Thorvie AV-40 is one of the easiest and fastest machines to learn how to set up and operate. When changing from face to top grinding, and from one diameter to the next, just loosen a lever and rotate an arm. This machine will save you 25% of the set up time over other grinders, and is less expensive. Attachments included in the package also allow you to grind router bits, planer knives, shaper cutters and much more.
