Create your own Tormek T-8 water-cooled sharpening system

The Tormek T-8 Custom includes a stripped Tormek T-8 sharpening machine without grinding wheel or honing wheel. The box includes the basic Tormek accessories: HB-10 Tormek Sharpening Handbook, WM-200 AngleMaster for measuring the bevel angle, and US-105 Universal Support for the jigs. The rest you decide for yourself by adding other accessories separately.

Choose your grinding wheel

Every tool is unique. Add the grinding wheel that suits your needs. Perhaps the versatile SG-250 Original Grindstone with adjustable sharpening properties equivalent to 220 to 1000 grit? Or one of the durable and extremely hard diamond grinding wheels? The SB-250 Blackstone Silicon special grindstone for quickly shaping and sharpening HSS steel? Or why not try the 4000 grit SJ-250 Japanese Waterstone for a mirror finish? The choice is yours!

Choose your honing wheel

A honing wheel is essential to remove the burr and achieve maximum sharpness. Your edge tool is polished to razor sharpness when you use the LA-220 Leather Honing Wheel together with our honing compound. The CW-220 Composite Honing Wheel with integrated polish easily removes the burr without honing compound. Pick your favorite!

Tormek T-8 – A powerful and versatile sharpening system

The Tormek T-8 is a powerful and versatile water-cooled sharpening system. The machine has a maintenance-free industrial AC motor, designed to run the grinding wheel during continuous use. The powerful motor is tested for a 25,000 hour service life. The efficient system manages to maintain a constant speed, even under full load, thanks to its unique drive wheel. The motor and the characteristic Tormek drive system guarantee you many years of silent and reliable operation.

Smart features, such as the Tormek EzyLock nut, which enables tool-free locking and unlocking of the grinding wheel, and the advanced water trough equipped with a screw lift and magnetic scraper, complete the Tormek T-8 as the ultimate sharpening system for all kinds of edge tools.

Please note that a grinding wheel, honing wheel, and jigs are not included with the Tormek T-8 Custom. Buy them separately to complete your system.

Reviews

Statements from Tormek Friends

As I sharpen about 100 knives a week in my work, I have different requirements than most people. I need things to be accurate and efficient in terms of time but without compromising the quality of the edge.

Reviews from Tormek users

I bought my first Tormek in the late 1980s at what was then the OBS supermarket in Rotebro. I've kept up with developments and upgraded it with all the new features like the stainless steel shaft, leather wheel, diamond grinding wheel, etc. I gave my old machine to my neighbor when my T8 arrived, because it was still working well. It'll go on creating goodwill on behalf of Tormek with him. :-)

Björn, Uppsala

This machine has made me a "sharpening pro" for drill bits, knives, chisels, axes, etc. It's really satisfying to finally have sharp tools, instantly habit forming :)

Ola, Västra Götaland

An excellent machine of good quality
