Unbeatable precision in your sharpening.

The advanced design ensures unbeatable precision for the Universal Support, which is the foundation of the Tormek sharpening system since it controls all grinding jigs and accessories. The patented precision mounts for the Universal Support are integrated in this model’s fully cast machine housing. This allows you to have full control and maximum accuracy in your sharpening.

The highest quality made in Sweden.

The Tormek T-8 Original is equipped with the SG-250 Original Grindstone that has adjustable characteristics equivalent to 220 to 1000 grit and can sharpen all qualities of steel, including HSS steel. The characteristic Tormek drive system ensures years of silent and reliable operation. The efficient system manages to maintain the optimal speed for water-cooled sharpening, even under full load, thanks to its unique driving wheel. The industrial AC motor is maintenance-free and designed to drive the full-size grinding wheel during continuous use. The motor is tested for 25,000-hour service life.

Water trough with screw lift and magnetic scraper.

The Tormek T-8 Original is equipped with loads of smart details to make your sharpening easier. For example, the water trough has a convenient screw lift to easily raise and lower the water trough. 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 enclosed water chute onto the edge of the water trough.

EzyLock to quickly switch grinding wheels.

Another worked-through detail is the stainless-steel main shaft with Tormek’s unique EzyLock nut, which enables tool-free locking and unlocking of the grinding wheel. EzyLock also makes it easy to change grinding wheel if you work with some of Tormek’s additional grinding wheels SB-250 Blackstone Silicon, SJ-250 Japanese Waterstone, or one of our three Diamond Wheels, DC-250, DF-250 or DE-250.

    I have been using this machine for almost a year, mainly sharpening knifes and recently some chisels. Great machine, provides excellent finish on the bevels and extreme sharpness. The angle master allows for repeatable angles and it is such a joy to use. I really recommend this one!
