Get Top Results with the most advanced water cooled sharpening system available: the NEW T-8 Sharpening System from Tormek!

The new T-8 wet stone sharpening system is rated for continuous use, has a vast array of specialty jigs available so you can quickly and easily sharpen virtually any tool in your house, backyard shed or workshop, and maximizes precision thanks to a revolutionary fully cast housing frame which guarantees minimal play for the Universal Support. 

This T-8 System is exactly the same as the regular T-8, except that the Super Grind Wheel has been replaced with the SB-250 Silicon Blackstone Wheel. The Blackstone Wheel was developed for shaping and sharpening very hard and exotic alloyed steels. The combination of abrasive hardness, shape, and grain size, is optimized to work efficiently at the Tormek system's low RPM. Its faster material removal is an advantage especially when shaping tools with a large bevel surface, where the grinding pressure is limited, for example, planer blades and wood turning skews. The water acts as a lubricant for faster grinding while it continuously cools the tool edge to prevent "bluing" the metal edges you are sharpening. After grinding, the genuine leather honing wheel gently removes the burr and hones the edge to razor sharpness.

Features of the Tormek T-8:
  • Stainless steel main shaft with Ezylock for quick stone change
  • Micro adjust nut with scale on Universal Support with Acme thread
  • Leather Honing Wheel - Power cord exit under the honing wheel
  • Horizontal Base for Universal Support cast in Housing
  • Advanced Water Trough with screw lift, magnet and scrape
  • Durable drive zinc wheel with proprietary rubber compound
  • SE-77 Square Edge Jig to sharpen chisels and plane blades more easily than ever
  • 115 volt, 200W, 60Hz, 1.5 Amp Motor
  • 7 year warranty
Square Edge Jig SE-77

The SE-77 Square Edge Jig, included with the T-8, changes the task of grinding tools square from tricky to foolproof. It references from the flat side of the tool for unparalleled ease in tool mounting. It also has travel limit stops that prevent you from running the tool off the edge and scraping a knuckle. The SE-77 Square Edge Jig is a further development of the SE‑76 jig. It has been provided with an adjustable side that can be set with the help of two smaller knobs, which allows fine tuning if needed. This can be required if the tool is not exactly square to the stone, is very narrow or if the steel is slightly twisted.

The T-8 System also includes the Angle Master , Honing Compound , Stone Grader , Diamond Truing Tool, and Handbook.
