What is the Tormek T8?
The Tormek T8 Original is a thorough and adaptable water-cooled sharpening system that has all the components to elevate your sharpening abilities. Its sophisticated design and its ease of use provide the most favourable circumstances for successful sharpening and exceptional outcomes. This system is perfect for both dedicated amateurs and professionals who prioritize quality.
The Tormek T8 Sharpening System is different from the majority of sharpeners. It has been created to last in every aspect – from its single-phase industrial engine and stainless steel shaft to its 1/8″ powder-coated steel housing. Weighing in at just over 31lbs, it is not lightweight but not built for portability either. The T8 sharpening system is equipped with a 10″ diameter grinding wheel powered by a motor that spins at 90RPM through a pool of water, which helps maintain the temper of the steel being sharpened. The motor is able to run non-stop without the worry of it getting too hot and can keep up under full load. The grinding wheel has a 220-grit finish, and the included stone grader can be used to increase the grit to 1000 if a smoother finish is desired.
The Tormek T-8 Original sharpening system has a lot of practical functions that make sharpening easier. One of these is a water trough with a screw-controlled lift that permits the user to adjust the water level quickly and easily. Additionally, it has a double purpose magnetized scraper: it collects steel particles when the sharpening process is going on and, afterwards, allows for simple cleaning of the water trough. For larger tools that may spill water outside the trough (like a chef’s knives or a planer blade), the included water chute can be attached to the side of the trough.
