Tormek Rotating Base

TO-RB-180

Rotate your Tormek with ease

You can use the RB-180 Rotating Base to easily rotate your machine 180° and then lock it in place. This allows you to alternate between sharpening and honing, or alternate between sharpening edge trailing and edge leading in just a few seconds. With no effort.

OVERVIEW

Why RB-180 Rotating Base?

  • Rotate your machine 180°.
  • More ergonomic sharpening.
  • Saves space – you don't need to be able to walk around the machine.
  • Fits the Tormek T-8, Tormek T-4 and some older models.

Easily switch between sharpening and honing

Some tools are best sharpened when the stone is rotating into the edge. Other tools are best sharpened with the stone rotating away from the edge. With Tormek's rotating base, you can easily rotate your machine 180° and adapt the direction of rotation to your needs.

The rotating base also makes it easy to switch between sharpening and honing. Always hone with the honing wheel rotating away from the edge (edge trailing), otherwise there's a risk of the tool cutting into the honing wheel and damaging it.

Better ergonomics

We've been very careful to make the RB-180 Rotating Base as thin as possible so it doesn't raise the machine and change the sharpening position. You can easily rotate your Tormek without heavy lifting or spilling water. All for the best sharpening experience.

The plastics in the RB-180 Rotating Base are optimized to provide low friction and high stability. What's more, the rotating base rests on rubber feet that absorb any vibrations and keep it steady while you sharpen your tools.

The RB-180 Rotating Base fits the Tormek T-8, Tormek T-4, Tormek T-7, and Tormek T-3, as well as models 2000, 1200, SA-250, and N-1500.

Tormek Review

The rotating base is a great addition to a T-8, works great, however as with all Tormek stuff is pricey,

Great Accessory!

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.
