Tormek Rotating Stand #RB-180

• With the new Tormek Rotating Base RB-180, you can easily rotate the machine 180° to select the ideal sharpening direction.
• It also makes it simple to switch from sharpening to honing.
• Tormek machines are solid and relatively heavy, which is an advantage when sharpening, and many owners have requested an easy way to rotate the machine.
• The solution is the new Tormek Rotating Base RB-180 which make it easy to turn the machine 180° and lock it firmly in position.
• A priority during the design process has been to make the RB-180 as thin as possible in order not to affect the working height.

    I already have 2 Tormek T8's as well as the large commercial machine. I make knives as well as sharpen them for people, as well as my wood working tools. So I am quite familiar with the tormek system. I use a number of different types of wheels (Diamond and CBN) and having a number of different abrasives allows a fast work flow. As to the tormek system, I have tried a number of different products over the last 40 years and have just bought a 3rd Tormek T8.
    Kind Regards,
