Let’s start with the obvious – this is an incredible sharpening kit. Of course, it’s for woodworkers of all proficiency levels, but it’s also ideal for starting a sharpening service – it’s that complete.
The Tormek T-8 is our favorite water-cooled sharpening system. If you use tools that need a finely honed, razor-sharp edge, this machine will give you a lifetime of excellent service. It sharpens all manner of tools – knives, scissors, wood chisels, plane irons, spoke shaves, carving tools, lathe turning tools, Axes, and much more. If it has an edge, the Tormek T-8 will sharpen it.
The Tormek Grindstone is constructed so that, with the Stone Grader, it can be treated to change its property from 220 grit to 1,000 grit. This has obvious advantages. You can make both the first fast grinding and the sharpening on the same grindstone and the same grinding machine and with the same jig setting.
