Tormek T-8 Custom

TO-T8 Custom

  • Build Your Own Tormek System

    For the first time ever, Tormek is offering the the T-8 Low RPM Water Cooled Grinder packaged without any wheels and the bare minimum of jigs and accessories. Think of it as A La Carte pricing for Tormek. Start with the T-8 Custom, then create your own individualized sharpening system by adding the grinding and honing wheels, jigs, and other accessories of your choice. Build a Tormek system that has exactly what you need.

    Only the Essentials

    The T-8 Custom comes with only the bare essentials:

    The rest is up to you. Start with the T-8 Custom as your base, and build from there. The possibilities are many.

    Note that the T-8 Custom does not come with a few things that are included with the Original T-8. The SE-77 Square Edge Jig, the TT-50 Truing Tool and the SP-650 Stone Grader are not included in the T-8 Custom

    Choose Your Grinding Wheel

    Start by selecting a grinding wheel to create your customized Tormek system. There are several to choose from. Whether you require a general purpose wheel or a specialty one, Tormek has a wheel for you.

    Choose Your Honing Wheel

    Tormek has two honing wheels to consider.

    Choose your Jigs and Accessories

    Of course there are too many to list here. See our Jigs and Kitsfor all the options.

    You Decide Based on Your Needs

    Maybe you are looking for a second machine to run a Japanese Water Stone for finishing, and don't require a second Standard Grinding Wheel. Maybe you are a wood turner and you really want to work with a Diamond Stone. Or maybe you have a need that we haven't thought of yet and want to mix and match to get the wheels and jigs you need. Now you have more options.

  • The T-8 features:

    • Cast Zinc Top, Frame and Motor Mount
    • Cast Zinc Internal Drive Wheel
    • Machined Tool Rest Mounts that are Integral to the Cast Housing
    • Tight Tolerances on Tool Rest Mounts
    • Height Adjusting Water Tray
    • Channeled Water Flow
    • Removable Water Tray Scraper with Magnet
    • Cord Located for Easy Machine Rotation

    Tormek's Quality Guarantee

    For those that understand quality and versatility, there is no substitute to Tormek quality. The T8 has a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty with an additional 3 years upon registration of the machine. That shows Tormek's long term commitment to quality. By purchasing a Tormek you are making a long term commitment to sharp tools and knives, and Tormek will be there to back it up.

    Tormek Repeatability

    The keyword when sharpening the Tormek way is repeatability. The tools are guided in jigs so you remove only a minute fraction of the steel at each sharpening. Even complicated shapes like fingernail turning gouges, spoon carving gouges and oval skew chisels with a radius edge are easily sharpened to fit your needs. Once the shape is created, you can resharpen quickly and easily. And all of the Tormek Jigs work on the T8.

    Tormek Reliability and Safety

    The water-cooled slow speed grindstone will not overheat steel. There is no worry about taking the temper out of your tool. In addition, there is no grinding dust. The steel particles are deposited into the water trough. And with the low speed, you can fully control the sharpening.

    Tormek Versatility

    A wide variety of guided jigs and accessories are available to customize the Tormek T8 offering you the ability to sharpen knives, scissors, carving tools, wood turning tools, axes, planer blades, and drill bits.

    Buying a Tormek is a safe investment in quality and performance.

The reference

I mean, I would not have 4 of these if I was not convinced it’s the product to have. Reliability, warranty, precision, consistancy of the results. No vibration. That’s what you are looking for and you get it there.

Excellent purchase and delivery service

Kim Tipper
Great purchase

I am grateful to for their help in providing this excellent machine and in the advice on which stone and attachments are best for my needs. Thank-you!

Tara Janel Brannigan
Love it! So many potential uses

Absolutely loving it so far. Much quieter than I assumed it would be, I don't have to worry about annoying the neighbors when I sharpen my tools. Clearly built to last, the quality is fantastic

Tormek products are one of a kind in the sharpening business!

Nothing at all to dislike.
This is an upgrade to my 18 year old workhorse of Tormek 2000 that has sharpened literally thousands of feet of everything from knives to scissors, chisels to carving/turning tools and planet/jointer blades that has earned its keep and fed our family!
Great new upgrades I hope to use for another 20 years without any issues!!!
