The best just got better. The Tormek T-8 is the top of the line water-cooled sharpening system, and is - by far - the best sharpening system we can find.
If you use tools that need a finely honed, razor-sharp edge, this machine will give you a lifetime of effortless sharpening. Using the Tormek, you can sharpen 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 200W motor powers the grinding wheel at a steady 90RPM (and does it at a quiet 52db). This ensures it sharpens tools without damaging or overheating them.
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. The water reservoir keeps things cool, and the leather honing wheel puts the final touch on your work.
It is rated for a continuous run, so go ahead and use it all afternoon. It includes several accessories and jigs for common use. Many more specialty jigs are available.
