Create your own Tormek T-8 Custom
The Tormek T-8 Custom includes a clean Tormek T-8 sharpening machine without a grinding wheel and honing wheel. In addition, the package includes just the essential Tormek accessories: the HB-10 Tormek Handbook on sharpening, the WM-200 AngleMaster to measure the edge angle, the US-105 Universal Support to give support for the jigs, and the Tormek instructional DVD. The rest is up to you to decide by just adding the other accessories separately.
Choose your grinding wheel
Every tool is unique. Add the grinding wheel that suits your needs. Maybe the all-round Original Grindstone with adjustable characteristics equivalent to 220 to 1000 grit? One of the durable and extremely hard Diamond Wheels? The Blackstone Silicon to quickly shape and sharpen HSS steel? Or the 4000 grit Japanese Waterstone for a mirror finish? The choice is yours!
Choose your honing wheel
A honing wheel is essential to remove the burr and get a sharp edge. The Leather Honing Wheel will get you the greatest possible sharpness and finish when used with the Honing Compound. The Composite Honing Wheel has integrated polish to remove the burr and is easy to use. Pick your favorite!
