  • Product Description

    The Tormek T-8 sharpening machine maximises the precision with its revolutionary fully cast housing. This new design, together with a number of elaborated details, gives you the best conditions possible for a successful sharpening with top results.

    The advanced design ensures an unbeatable precision for the Universal Support, which is the foundation of the Tormek sharpening system, since it controls all grinding jigs and accessories. The former mounted sleeves for the Universal Support are now integrated in this model's fully cast machine housing. This update will increase the accuracy in your sharpening. The characteristic drive system of Tormek is also implemented in this new model. The efficient system manages to maintain a constant speed, even under full load - something unique for Tormek’s sharpeners. Tormek Original Grindstone SG-250 sharpen all qualities of steel, including HSS. The powerful AC motor is designed to drive the full size grindstone during continuous use. 

    The water trough has been further improved with a screw lift for an easier fitting. It also has a double function magnetic scraper; during sharpening the magnet collects steel particles and after sharpening the scraper will make it easy to clean the water trough. For long tools that may drip water outside the water trough (like chef’s knives and planer blades), you can easily fit the included water chute onto the edge of the water chute.
    Another worked through detail is the stainless steel main shaft with Tormek’s unique EzyLock nut, which automatically set the stone to the right torque without tools. EzyLock also makes it easy to switch stone if you work with Tormek special stones SB-250 or SJ-250.
    Included with the T-8: the updated Square Edge Jig SE-77, plus all you need as basic equipment: the TT-50 Truing Tool, the SP-650 Stone Grader, the WM-200 AngleMaster, the PA-70 Honing Compound and the Tormek Handbook on sharpening.
