This new Tormek T-8 sharpening system is the perfect answer to your sharpening requirements. Constant speed drive system and precise repeatability features, are the key to good sharpening. The diamond wheel is 250mm x 50mm water-cooled and the honing wheel 220mm x 31mm. Powered by a quiet 200W motor, Tormek’s unique and efficient drive system maintains constant speed, even under load. Tools can be sharpened with the wheel cutting towards or away from the edge. The T-8 features a strong, cast-alloy casing with impact-resistant ABS plastic sides which sit on top of a precision-cast zinc, powder coated, stand for maximum strength and stability. The mounting sleeves for the universal support are an integral part of the casting. The design eliminates the possibility of any misalignment between the universal support and the wheel. The universal support bar has a micro-adjuster, which makes setting up or replicating a sharpening angle easy and highly accurate. The Advanced Water Trough features a screw lift mechanism. You can fit it, fill it and then by simply turning the knob, raise the trough to bring the water into contact with the wheel. It makes removing the trough for emptying just as simple. The T-8 includes a magnetic scraper for efficient cleaning. The unit has an NVR safety switch with a strong waterproof cover. The Tormek wet-sharpening method leaves a polished, burr-free edge without overheating the tool. Wet sharpening significantly extends the life of your tools; it removes less material without affecting the temper of the steel.
