So far ive used it on my chisels planer blades and knives all different grades of blade steel consistently amazing results very sharp edges at the perfect angle i bought the t8 to replace my old sheppach tiger 2000 which had always dissappinted me Literally no comparison to the T8 this unit feels strong and robust its certainly accurate yes its expensive but trust me from a bloke who’s made the mistake of going cheap the first time nothing is more expensive than a cheap machine that doesn’t do the job you’ll end up having to buy the tomak anyway
My advice is to buy the tormak t8 if you want a high quality tool
Justtools are great as well with an easy to use web sight fast post and excellent communication i’ll be back for more
very helpful staff .machine well packed , everything as ordered
this thing is awsome had a seppech tiger 2500 which broke down decided to go all out and buy the T8 should have bought this in the first place. it is unbalavable just how much better then the tiger this thing is quiet smooth can get razor sharp with jigs and just as sharp freehand. Meatworker for 30 odd years now always had water cooled grinding stones at work some stones 8 inch or more accross ,when the grinder at work broke down and was not replaced i strugeled to keep knives edges from rounding and by hand just takes to long so took cheap road with seppach big mistake this T8 is worth every cent and 7 year warrenty cant go wrong. You get what you pay for here expensive yes but well worth it just amazing how superior this machine is. Still cant get my head around this fact . Would have bet that one grinder compered to another maybe 15% improvement from top of line to middle of the road.But not here T8 200% beater then anything ive ever used ecxept for large foot operated grinder which i used many moons ago to flatten and de shoulder knives. Prehaps only problem here grinding or shapeing does take a while as stone only removes metal at slow rate once shaped though from dull to sharp 4 or 5 runs on each side remove burr on diamond plate or honning wheel and away you go razor sharp
this is the best
arrived a day early.....
I have found the Tormek easy to use, the edges remain even and true, even freehand, without constantly watching the edge against the grinding wheel as with high speed freehand grinding. Considering it is almost always necessary to hone from the opposite side as grinding, maybe Tormak might consider incorporating the swivel base as an integral part of the machine. One is on my wish list as a priority! The various jigs are necessary to get the most from the Tormak, the hand tool kit is well presented and covers most knife sharpening needs. I see no reason why the turning tool kit will not be the same quality and usefulness as expected.
