Sharpen with unbeatable precision

The advanced design ensures unbeatable precision for the Universal Support, which is the foundation of the Tormek sharpening system, since it guides all grinding jigs and accessories. The patented precision mounts for the Universal Support are integrated in this model's fully cast machine housing. This gives you full control and maximum accuracy in your sharpening.

The highest quality made in Sweden

The Tormek T-8 Original comes with the SG-250 Original Grindstone. It has adjustable sharpening properties equivalent to 220 to 1000 grit and sharpens all types of steel grades, including HSS. Tormek's efficient drive system guarantees you many years of quiet and reliable use. The system is built to maintain optimal speed for water-cooled sharpening, even under full load, thanks to its unique drive wheel. The industrial AC motor is maintenance-free and designed to run the full-size grinding wheel for continuous use. The motor is tested for a 25,000 hour service life.


Water trough with screw lift and magnetic scraper

The Tormek T-8 Original is equipped with loads of smart features 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 – quick and easy switching of 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. The EzyLock also makes it easy to change grinding wheels if you work with some of Tormek's special grindstones SB-250 Blackstone Silicon or SJ-250 Japanese Waterstone. Or perhaps one of our diamond grinding wheels?
