High Wycombe Store- Tormek T-8 Black Sharpening System Live In-store

This year marks 50 years since Torgny Jansson founded Tormek.

To celebrate the occasion Tormek has produced a special anniversary edition of their renowned T-8 sharpening system. This limited edition all black model comes with a generous selection of accessories and an incredible 50-year warranty!

Wet sharpening significantly extends the life of your tools as it removes less material without affecting the temper of the steel. This latest version of Tormek’s original concept represents 50 years of development and improvement, making it the perfect answer to your sharpening requirements.

You're invited to help celebrate Tormek's 50th year by joining our in-store woodworker James Williams as they demonstrate the various features and benefits of this new Tormek T-8 Black. Only a limited number of these machines are available so this is a rare opportunity to see this machine in action. During this FREE demonstration, James will take a indepth look at the different Tormek machines, jigs, accessories, wheels and wetstone sharpening. This is an ideal event for those looking to get their first sharpening machine, new Tormek owners or just fans wanting to take a peek at this unique design!

Spaces are limited to only 30 people in each session, so please book your place now. We recommend arriving on time to gain the full benefits of this demonstration and we encourage you to come along with questions.
