Very nice but....

A quality product that sharpens beautifully but, is it worth the price?
It’s not just the main system but all the accessories as well. A rubber mat with a turntable £70+ !!!
Well I’ve bought it now, I’ll just have to buy a rubber mat and tv turntable from Homebase.

Worth the money

Like others I have baulked at the price of the Tormek for years and sharpened everything by hand with waterstones. I decided to take the plunge however and now wish I had done it years ago. The Tormek is very well built, very easy to use and produces razor sharp tools. Due to the fact that it only removes a very small amount of material and it is so quick, I sharpen my tools more often and always have sharp tools. I thoroughly recommend the investment if you can afford it.

Very good machine

Well this Tormek is the best water stone i have ever used have used older models and they are good to. High end kitchen knifes back to the way they came from the shop little tricky to get the hang of the knife sharpening 3 to 4 passes on each side quick rub on honing wheel job done. Chisels changed the bevel from 25 to 30 deg micro bevel on honed all done 5min (full bevel grind ) . Yes it is nearly €600 for me but take out water stones sharpening jig set it up spend 2 hours on 6 chisels, with the Tormek 1 hour would have every tool in your shop done and razor sharp no mess no fuss. I also do some knife making in 01 tool steel cut one out this morning done the bevels on my belt grinder finished with the Tormek perfect bevel. If anyone is thinking about getting the Tormek T8 just do it. Peter

ahjej!

This is very expensive toy of high quality! Is not for serious work! Too much time for adjusting. Useless for heavier work. Definitely I would not buy again.

Excellent machine for perfect shrapening of tools

This is a very well designed and made sharpening system. Together with all the various jigs, and especially the clever drill sharpening jig, you can have consistently sharp chisels, planes, turning tools, drill bits and anything else that requires a sharp edge. It takes a while to learn how to use all the different jigs, but well worth while reading the accompanying manuals carefully to achieve good results. In my opinion all other sharpening systems probably pale into insignificance. It is not cheap but if you can afford it I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Only slight niggle so far - the knob for adjusting the height of the water tray sometimes lets the tray down suddenly.

Great piece of kit

I bought the T8 as it is the latest model in that range and I wasn't disappointed. Beautifully engineered and does exactly what it says on the tin, to coin a phrase.
There is a DVD which comes with it to show you how everything works including all the accessories. I have bought some accessories which include the drilll sharpener, which I haven't yet used, but again looks just as well engineered as the T8. That said, it is pricey but I suppose you only get what you pay for.
