|Diamond Parting Tool|
Guidelines shown below are for use with the Tormek SVS-50 Multi Jig. For the Diamond Parting Tool, the Open Seat is used.
The 3D-printed jig is designed to ensure the parting tool is held perpendicular to the universal support bar. Below are links to the STL files used to 3D print this. The file needed is based on the side angles (γ) as outlined in the picture to the right.

β can range from 50° - 85°.
It is recommended to not move side-to-side with the tool's edge engaged with the grinding surface, especially when using the SVS-50. Instead, move to a position, ensure the SVS-50 is engaged fully with the USB, and then raise the handle to engage the tool with the grinding surface.
If you want to move use a different part of the grinding surface, lower the handle first, and then repeat the above-listed instructions.
