The T-8 is Tormek's top of the line water-cooled sharpening system. If you use tools that need a finely honed, razor-sharp edge, this machine will give you a lifetime of excellent service, and ensure your tools have an edge that allows you to effortlessly work your magic.
It sharpens all manner of tools - knives, scissors, wood chisels, plane irons, spoke shaves, carving tools, lathe turning tools, axes, and much more. If it has an edge, the Tormek T-8 will sharpen it. This is a high quality piece of machinery.
The 200W motor powers the grinding wheel at a steady 90RPM (and does it at a quiet 52db) and the water reservoir adds an extra level of protection to keep things cool,. These 2 things ensure the T-8 sharpens your knives and tools without damaging or overheating them.
The Tormek Grindstone is constructed so that with the included Stone Grader it can be treated to change its property from 220 grit to 1,000 grit. This has obvious advantages. You can make both the first fast grinding and the sharpening on the same grindstone and the same grinding machine and with the same jig setting. And the leather honing wheel puts the final touch on your work.
It is rated for continuous run, so go ahead and use it all afternoon.
The T-8 system comes packaged with:
Truing Tool TT-50
Square Edge Jig SE-77
Stone Grader SP-650
Honing Compound PA-70
Angle Master WM-200
Tormek Handbook HB-10
And many more specialty jigs are available to extend the capabilities of your Tormek.
This is the finest sharpening system Tormek has ever made, and we're proud to offer it to you.
