Product Description

Tormek T-8 Water Cooled Sharpening System

TORMEK T-8 maximises the precision thanks to the revolutionary fully cast housing which guarantees minimal play for the Universal support. This gives you the best conditions possible to succeed with your sharpening. Tormek's unique drive system is efficient and manages to hold a constant speed, even under full load. The Tormek Original Grindstone sharpens all qualities of steel, including HSS. The machine features a number of elaborated details, like instant stone locking with EzyLock, water trough with lift and a removable magnet scraper for efficient cleansing.

On the new T-8 model, Tormek has integrated the previous mounted sleeves for the Universal Support into the fully cast housing. That guarantees minimal play for the Universal Support; an innovation which improves the control of the sharpening and increases the accuracy of the final results.

With an updated design and several upgraded details, the T-8 gives you the best conditions possible for a successful sharpening with top results.

The Advanced Water Trough has been further improved with a screw lift for an easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleansing.

For long tools that drip water over the edge of the lip (like chef's knives and planer blades), you can add the water chute. Set the widest edge of the chute onto the tab in the middle of the lip of the trough and the water chute will direct the water back into the trough from even the longest tools.

The removable scraper incorporates a strong magnet, which attracts the steel particles ground from the tools being sharpened. This keeps your stone clean and cutting more freely. These small steel particles would otherwise be pressed into the stone surface and can affect the sharpening. When you clean the water trough, you'll find that most of the steel will be located on the magnet. When you remove the scraper, the magnet will release the steel particles and you can easily clean the trough.

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.

"This is a superb machine - I've just upgraded after 15 years of using the smaller Tormek, and there are some significant improvements, such as the way the water trough is located - virtually spill-proof, now - and the use of stops on the jigs - no risk of slipping off the wheel and injuring yourself now. Also the larger wheel makes sharpening even quicker and extremely accurate. My gouges (I'm a luthier) have never been so sharp. The rotating base is brilliant - don't know how I managed without it before! All the hassle of getting truly sharp tools has now gone and I'm spending more time carving as a result. Yandle's service is excellent - really efficient and helpful."

"I recently upgraded my sharpening system from a Dakota whetstone to the T8 and the difference is immediately apparent. The constant speed of the wheel, even under load is brilliant and the ability to label each tool with the settings ensures accurate repeatability. I particularly like the system to lower the water receptacle when not sharpening which ensures that the wheel is not left sitting in water and acquiring an unsightly tide mark! An afternoon touching up all of my tools has left them sharper than ever before and a joy to use."
