In Detail

Tormek 7 Year (Pro Usage) Warranty

The Tormek T-8 sharpening system is the perfect answer to your sharpening requirements. For any professional or amateur needing a versatile, reliable and repeatable sharpening system, the T-8 should be on the top of your list. The T-8 has a 250mm x 50mm water-cooled grindstone and a 220mm x 31mm leather tyred honing wheel. Powered by a quiet 200W motor, Tormek’s unique and efficient drive system maintains constant speed, even under load. Tools can be sharpened with the Supergrind wheel cutting towards or away from the edge. The T-8 features a strong, cast-alloy casing. The mounting sleeves for the universal support are an integral part of the casting. The design eliminates the possibility of any misalignment between the universal support and the grinding wheel. The universal support bar has a micro-adjuster, which makes setting up or replicating a sharpening angle easy and highly accurate. The Advanced Water Trough features a screw lift mechanism. You can fit it, fill it and then by simply turning the knob, raise the trough to bring the water into contact with the stone. It makes removing the trough for emptying just as simple. The T-8 includes a magnetic scraper for efficient cleaning. The unit has an NVR safety switch with a strong waterproof cover. The T-8 is suitable for use in education and other areas where an NVR switch is a necessity. The T-8 includes TT-50 Truing and Dressing Tool, SP-650 Stone Grader, WM-200 Angle Setting Guide, PA-70 Honing Paste and Dressing Oil for the honing wheel. In addition, there is a comprehensive handbook and Tormek DVD all packed in a strong storage tray. The T-8 also includes the SE-77 upgraded jig for square edge tools. Its design has a movable side and fine adjustment. This ensures a precise 90° angle between your blade’s edge and side. It also offers the possibility to create a slightly cambered edge. The Tormek wet-grinding method leaves a polished, burr-free edge without overheating the tool. Wet grinding significantly extends the life of your tools; it removes less material without affecting the temper of the steel.

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.
