The Universal Support is the heart of the Tormek system. On the new T-8 model, Tormek have integrated the previously mounted sleeves for the Universal Support into the fully cast housing. This guarantees minimal play on the Universal Support, an innovation which improves control when sharpening and increases the accuracy of final results.

Tormek’s CEO Håkan Persson says: “The development of our new model has been a positive challenge. We have worked hard both in-house and with external specialists to create a product that gives an enhanced sharpening experience and control over the final result. We want to give our users the best conditions possible to succeed.”

Tormek’s innovative and characteristic drive system is also found on the new model. The efficient drive system maintains a constant speed, even under full load, which is unique to all Tormek machine models.

With the Tormek Original Grindstone, the user can sharpen all qualities of steel, including HSS (high speed steel).

The Advanced Water Trough has been further improved with a turn-screw lift for easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleaning. In addition, the user gets the SE-77 upgraded jig for square edge tools. The SE-77 now has a movable side that allows for fine adjustment of the setting, ensuring a 90° corner or the option to create a cambered shape.

Håkan Persson sums it up: “The new model mirrors our mission – the desire to make sharpening easy and efficient for all our users”.
