New Tormek T-8 Maximises Precision

Tormek T-8

Tormek of Sweden is stepping up their game with a revolutionary fully cast housing on the new T-8 model. With an updated design and several upgraded details, the T-8 gives you the best conditions possible for a successful sharpening with top results. 
 
Tormek’s innovative sharpening system has come to be appreciated worldwide for its unbeatable versatility, accuracy and ease of use. On the new T-8 model, Tormek has integrated the previous mounted sleeves for the Universal Support into the fully cast housing. That guarantees minimal play for the Universal Support; an innovation which improves the control of the sharpening and increases the accuracy of the final results. 
 
Tormek’s CEO, Håkan Persson, says: “The development of our new model has been a positive challenge. We have worked hard, both in-house and together with external specialists, in order to create a product that gives an enhanced sharpening experience and control over the final result. We want to give our users the best conditions possible to succeed.” 
 
Tormek’s innovative and characteristic drive system is also found on the new model. This efficient drive system maintains a constant speed, even under full load, which is unique to all Tormek’s machine models. 
 
With the Tormek Original Grindstone, the user can sharpen all qualities of steel, including High Speed Steel (HSS). 
 
The Advanced Water Trough has been further improved with a screw lift for an easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleansing. In addition, the user gets the upgraded jig for square edge tools, the SE-77. Its design now has a movable side that allows for a fine adjustment to the setting, which ensures a 90° corner or the possibility to create a cambered shape. 
 
“The new model mirrors our mission – the desire to make sharpening easy and efficient for all our users”, Håkan Persson sums it up.
