Upgraded Tool Rest for Triton Sharpener

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Triton have upgraded the tool rest on the Triton Sharpener with a fully welded version, rather than the bent and welded version they were originally.

The new design results in a much straighter horizontal bar, rather than one curved with heat stress. It also looks to be made out of a better grade of steel (although I have nothing to base that on).

Unfortunately, I still think there is a missed opportunity here, and the centre bar should have been threaded so a nut riding the thread could accurately set the bar height (Tormek style).

  1. So did Triton send out the new bar or do you have to buy it? As I have just bought this sharpener and it has the bent bar in it.

  2. Honestly, I have no idea. In the past, Triton have been very good with this sort of thing, replacing the item if it has a known fault.

    Contact them and I would (hope/expect) that they would sort it out for you. After all, it is a manufacturing fault.
