T-8 Fully cast housing   T-8 Integrated sleeves

On the new T-8 model, Tormek has integrated the previous mounted sleeves for the Universal Support into the fully cast housing. That guarantees minimal play for the Universal Support; an innovation which improves the control of the sharpening and increases the accuracy of the final results.

With an updated design and several upgraded details, the T-8 gives you the best conditions possible for a successful sharpening with top results.

T-8 Screw lift   T-8 Magnetic Scraper

The Advanced Water Trough has been further improved with a screw lift for an easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleansing.

T-8 Water Trough   T-8 Water Chute

For long tools that drip water over the edge of the lip (like chef’s knives and planer blades), you can add the water chute. Set the widest edge of the chute onto the tab in the middle of the lip of the trough and the water chute will direct the water back into the trough from even the longest tools.

T-8 Scraper for water trough   Magnet Cleans the Stone of Steel Particles

The removable scraper incorporates a strong magnet, which attracts the steel particles ground from the tools being sharpened. This keeps your stone clean and cutting more freely. These small steel particles would otherwise be pressed into the stone surface and can affect the sharpening. When you clean the water trough, you’ll find that most of the steel will be located on the magnet. When you remove the scraper, the magnet will release the steel particles and you can easily clean the trough.
