The highest quality made in Sweden
The Tormek T-8 Original is equipped with the SG-250 Original Grindstone that has adjustable
characteristics equivalent to 220 to 1000 grit and can sharpen all qualities of steel, including HSS
steel. The characteristic Tormek drive system of ensures years of silent and reliable operation. The
efficient system manages to maintain the optimal speed for water cooled sharpening, even under full
load, thanks to its unique driving wheel. The industrial AC motor is maintenance-free and designed to
drive the full-size grinding wheel during continuous use. The motor is tested for a 25,000 hour service
Water trough with screw lift and magnetic scraper
The Tormek T-8 Original is equipped with loads of smart details to make your sharpening easier. For
example, the water trough has a convenient screw lift to easily raise and lower the water trough. It
also has a double function magnetic scraper: during sharpening, the magnet collects steel particles,
and after sharpening, the scraper will make it easy to clean the water trough. For long tools that may
drip water outside the water trough (like chef’s knives and planer blades), you can easily fit the
enclosed water chute onto the edge of the water trough.
EzyLock to quickly switch grinding wheels
Another worked-through detail is the stainless-steel main shaft with Tormek’s unique EzyLock nut,
which enables tool-free locking and unlocking of the grinding wheel. EzyLock also makes it easy to
change grinding wheel if you work with some of Tormek’s additional grinding wheels SB-250
Blackstone Silicon, SJ-250 Japanese Waterstone, or one of our three Diamond Wheels, DC-250, DF250 or DE-250.
