On the new T-8 model, Tormek has integrated the previous mounted sleeves for the Universal Support into the fully cast housing. That guarantees minimal play for the Universal Support; an innovation which improves the control of the sharpening and increases the accuracy of the final results.
With an updated design and several upgraded details, the T-8 gives you the best conditions possible for a successful sharpening with top results.
The Advanced Water Trough has been further improved with a screw lift for an easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleansing.
For long tools that drip water over the edge of the lip (like chef's knives and planer blades), you can add the water chute. Set the widest edge of the chute onto the tab in the middle of the lip of the trough and the water chute will direct the water back into the trough from even the longest tools.
