The Tormek water-cooled sharpening system has a well-deserved reputation for versatility, accuracy and ease of use. Its precise jig-guided control allows even the novice to consistently produce tools with proper edge geometry. The double-ended arbor carries two wheels – a 220x aluminum oxide grindstone and a leather stropping wheel charged with compound. Grinding on the stone followed by stropping creates a toothed edge suitable for shears, cutlery, axes or utility chisels. When you need a refined edge, you can use the included stone grader to convert the grindstone’s surface to a fine texture comparable to 1000x; subsequent stropping produces a mirror finish. Made in Sweden from sturdy, high-quality components. Click here to see our selection of available accessories.

The basic T-4 machine is suitable for general home and workshop sharpening. It has an impact-resistant ABS plastic housing with a cast zinc top plate to provide firm support for the jigs. The machine includes a 200mm dia. by 40mm wide (8" x 1-5/8") grindstone, a 145mm dia. by 26mm wide (5-3/4" x 1") leather wheel, and a removable trough that holds the water and collects swarf. Its 115V motor runs at 120 rpm, is rated for 1/2 hour of use every hour and has a rust-resistant stainless-steel arbor.

The professional-grade T-8 machine sharpens a wide range of household and woodworking tools. Rated for continuous use, it’s more powerful and robust than the T-4, with sufficient torque to maintain constant speed under full load; this is important when grinding jointer/planer blades and high-speed steel tools, which require the user to apply greater force. Its 115V motor operates at 90 rpm and has a stainless-steel arbor to resist rust. The diamond-tipped truing tool dresses a worn grinding wheel to its original profile and shape, with travel controlled by a precise screw-feed advance. The T-8 has ABS side panels and a substantial castzinc housing, which dampens vibration and gives the jigs rigid support. A magnet built into the removable water trough gathers metal debris for ready disposal. Includes a 250mm dia. by 50mm wide (10" x 2") grindstone as well as a 220mm dia. by 31mm wide (8-5/8" x 1-1/4") leather wheel.

The T-8 includes a diamond-tipped wheel-truing tool (our item #68M01.40) and a jig for sharpening regular and tapered chisels and plane blades up to 3" wide and 3/8" thick; both these attachments are optional for the T-4. Both machines come with a gauge for measuring and setting bevel angles, a stone grader and a 70g tube of 3-micron honing compound (replacement tubes available). A 58-minute DVD and 164-page manual provide complete instructions for sharpening an array of tools, as well as maintenance advice and other tips. For those who would like a preview, the DVD is also sold separately.

The machines come with a 7-year warranty (the T-8 is also covered for commercial use).

These products are not stocked at our retail stores, but can be ordered for pick-up.
