This package includes the T-8 Sharpening System, the Hand Tool, Woodturner’s Kit, Planer Blade Attachment, 180° Rotational Base and Drill Bit Sharpening Attachment. The Tormek T-8 is our top of the line water-cooled sharpening system, and is – by far – the best sharpening system one can buy. If you use tools that need a finely honed, razor-sharp edge, this machine will give you a lifetime of excellent service, and ensure your tools have an edge that allows you to effortlessly work your magic. It sharpens all manner of tools – knives, scissors, wood chisels, plane irons, spoke shaves, carving tools, lathe turning tools, Axes, and much more. If it has an edge, the Tormek T-8 will sharpen it.

The Tormek Grindstone is constructed so that with the Stone Grader it can be treated to change its property from 220 grit to 1,000 grit. This has obvious advantages. You can make both the first fast grinding and the sharpening on the same grindstone and the same grinding machine and with the same jig setting. After grinding, the 8-5/8" diameter x 1-7/32" genuine leather honing wheel gently removes the burr and hones the edge to razor sharpness.

The T-8 System includes the Advanced Square Edge Jig, Truing and Dressing Tool, Stone Grader, Angle Master, Honing Compound, Handbook and Instructional DVD and comes with a seven-year warranty. The Hand Tool Kit includes the Knife Jig, Small Knife Holder, Long Knife Jig, Scissors Jig, Axe Sharpening Jig and Short Tool Jig. The Woodturner’s Kit includes the Gouge Jig, Multi Jig, Turning Tool Setter, Tool Rest, Profiled Leather Honing Wheel, Machine Cover and Woodturner’s Instruction Box. The Planer Blade Attachment allows you to achieve a razor sharp edge on blades longer than 10-1/2.” Also included is Tormek’s patented Drill Bit Attachment which allows you to sharpen your drill bits to a 4 facet point with the highest precision. The optimal point and clearance angles can be set according to each drilling requirement, which depends upon the drill size and material. Completely restore worn drills as well as broken drills to a perfect shape. Finally, the rotating base which enables you to easily rotate the machine 180 degrees and lock it with complete stability. It makes it easy to alternate between sharpening and honing or sharpening towards or away from the edge. Stainless steel shaft and hardware.
