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!

Sharpen all your edge tools With the wide range of Tormek patented jigs, you can sharpen practically all types of edge tools. Tormek is dedicated to developing water cooled sharpening through innovative solutions!

Exact replication The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. You can shape the tool exactly to your needs. Even complicated shapes such as fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radiused edge are easily sharpened.

Cleanest edges You finish the sharpening process by honing and polishing the edge on the leather honing wheel. You get a razor sharp edge.

Fast sharpening Once the shape is created, you remove only a fraction of the steel when re-sharpening, which makes it a quick job.
Full control At the low speed, you have full control of the sharpening and remove no more steel than necessary. An extra benefit is that your tools last longer.

No risk of overheating There is no risk that the edge becomes overheated and loses its hardness.

Safe and quiet Worn steel particles are deposited into the water trough, keeping the air clear of grinding dust. No sparks are produced that can be a fire hazard in workshops with a lot of wood dust. You will also find that the Tormek runs surprisingly quietly.
