The T-8 delivers maximum precision thanks to the revolutionary frame made from a single cast, which guarantees only minimal space for the universal support. This gives you the best prerequisite for being successful in grinding. Tormek's unique drive system is effective and maintains a constant speed even under heavy loads. The included Tormek original whetstone cuts all types of steel, including HSS. The machine has many well thought-out details, such as the quick-release fastener of the stone with EzyLock, a water tank with a lifting arrangement and a removable magnetic scraper for effective cleaning.

Tormek has now integrated the previously mounted sleeves for the universal support on the cast housing of the new T-8 model. This ensures minimal play for the universal support; an improvement that increases control over the grinding and improves the accuracy of the end result.
With an updated design and some revised details, the T-8 creates the best conditions for successful grinding with top results.
The water tank has also been improved with a lifting assembly for easy positioning and a magnetic scraper for cleaning.
For very long tools (e.g. long knives and machine planing knives) there is now an extra drip guard that can simply be attached to the edge of the container and through which the waste water is directed back into the water container.
The removable scraper on the T-8's water tank has a built-in magnet. This effectively catches the steel particles during grinding and collects them in a corner of the water container. This keeps the whetstone cleaner and more efficient. Otherwise, these particles could penetrate the surface of the stone and impair the grinding properties. When you empty the water tank you will see that the steel particles have accumulated on the magnet. Remove the scraper, the magnet frees the accumulated steel particles and you can simply clean the water tank.
