  • Cast Zinc Internal Drive Wheel
  • Machined Tool Rest Mounts that are Integral to the Cast Housing
  • Tighter Tolerances on Tool Rest Mounts

Tormek's Quality Guarantee

For those that understand quality and versatility, there is no substitute to Tormek quality. The T8 has a 7 year manufacturer’s warranty that shows Tormek's long term commitment to quality. By purchasing a Tormek you are making a long term commitment to sharp tools and knives, and Tormek will be there to back it up.

Tormek Repeatability

The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. The tools are guided in jigs so you remove only a minute fraction of the steel at each sharpening. Even complicated shapes like fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radius edge are easily sharpened to fit your needs. Once the shape is created, you can resharpen quickly and easily. And all of the Tormek Jigs work on the T8.

Tormek Reliability and Safety

The water cooled slow speed grindstone will not overheat steel. There is no worry about taking the temper out of your tool. In addition, there is no grinding dust, the steel particles are deposited into the water trough. And with the low speed, you can fully control the sharpening.

Tormek Versatility

A wide variety of guided jigs and accessories are available to customize the Tormek T8 offering you the ability to sharpen knives, scissors, carving tools, wood turning tools, axes, planer blades, and drill bits.

Buying a Tormek is a safe investment in quality and performance.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
