• The key word when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability.
• The tools are guided in jigs so you remove only a minute fraction of the steel at each sharpening.
• Even complicated shapes like fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radius edge are easily sharpened to fit your needs.
• Once the shape is created, you can resharpen quickly and easily. And all of the Tormek Jigs work on the T8.

7 YEAR WARRANTY
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.
With an updated design and several upgraded details, the T-8 gives you the best conditions possible for a successful sharpening with top results.
The Advanced Water Trough has been further improved with a screw lift for an easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleansing.
For long tools that drip water over the edge of the lip (like chef's knives and planer blades), you can add the water chute. Set the widest edge of the chute onto the tab in the middle of the lip of the trough and the water chute will direct the water back into the trough from even the longest tools.
The removable scraper incorporates a strong magnet, which attracts the steel particles ground from the tools being sharpened. This keeps your stone clean and cutting more freely. These small steel particles would otherwise be pressed into the stone surface and can affect the sharpening. When you clean the water trough, you'll find that most of the steel will be located on the magnet. When you remove the scraper, the magnet will release the steel particles and you can easily clean the trough.
The T-8 model is delivered with these accessories

Tormek almost perfect!
Posted by Neil Walker on 11th Jan 2017
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.
