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.

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.
