The RB-180 enables you to easily rotate the machine 180° and lock it with complete stability. You can alternate between sharpening and honing, or sharpening towards or away from the edge in seconds.
Some tools are best sharpened with the stone running towards the edge and other tools should have the stone running away from the edge. With the Tormek Rotating Base RB-180, you can easily rotate the machine 180° to select the ideal sharpening direction.
The Rotating Base also makes it easy to switch from sharpening to honing. Honing is always carried out with the honing wheel running away from the edge, otherwise the tool will cut into the leather.
The rotating base is a great addition to a T-8, works great, however as with all Tormek stuff is pricey,
I'm very glad I bought this accessory along with the Tormek 8 and Hand Tools order as it is so much easier to spin round the heavy Tormek 8 when needed and as well, it clicks into place easily.

All good thanks
Works as advertised! A must have. Helps when rotating sideways to determine proper blade angle with angle finder.
