    The highest quality made in Sweden

    The Tormek T-8 Original is equipped with the SG-250 Original Grindstone that has adjustable characteristics equivalent to 220 to 1000 grit and can sharpen all qualities of steel, including HSS steel. The industrial AC motor is maintenance-free and designed to drive the full-size grinding wheel during continuous use. The motor is tested for a 25,000 hour service life.

    Water trough with screw lift and magnetic scraper

    The water trough has a convenient screw lift to easily raise and lower the water trough. It also has a double function magnetic scraper: during sharpening, the magnet collects steel particles, and after sharpening, the scraper will make it easy to clean the water trough. For long tools that may drip water outside the water trough (like chef's knives and planer blades), you can easily fit the enclosed water chute onto the edge of the water trough.

    EzyLock to quickly switch grinding wheels

    Another worked-through detail is the stainless-steel main shaft with Tormek's unique EzyLock nut, which enables tool-free locking and unlocking of the grinding wheel.
