Tormek is committed to providing the best solutions for sharpening all types of edge tools. They have developed a unique sharpening system that has come to set the standard in modern edge tool sharpening.
Compared to the previous model, T-3, Tormek has implemented new features that include a New Zinc Cast Top to which the motor and main shaft are mounted. Also, in the Zinc Cast Top, two sleeves for the Universal Mount can be found. This all results in an unbeatable level of precision for which all of the numerous sharpening jigs will benefit.
Like the larger Tormek T-8, the T-4 comes equipped with the 8” ceramic Tormek Original Grindstone. This grindstone is designed for efficient steel removal, smooth finish and longevity. The included stone grader allows you to change the surface of this stone from 220 grit to 1000 grit, effectively giving you 2 grinding stones in 1! This grinding wheel stays in a continuous bath of water which keeps your tools cool to the touch and prevents any chance of your edge tools being overheated. The slow RPM (120 RPM) rotation of the grinding wheel allows it to spin, while the water tray captures any airborne grinding dust. The leather stropping wheel will hone your edge tools quickly and efficiently.
This machine is well suited for chisels, knives, carving tools, turning tools, scissors and drill bits. For moulding knives and plane irons, you will be best off with the Tormek T-8. This motor will give you plenty of time to sharpen your tools with a 30 minute continuous run time rating. That is plenty of time for most sharpening applications. If you feel you need longer continuous run time, check out the T-8.
The T-4 is a great option when you are looking to customize your own sharpening system with only the accessories you need, while still achieving the same precision as what is found on the larger T-8.
As mentioned above, the T-4 allows you to start with the foundation for the ultimate in edge tool sharpening, allowing you to add any of the Tormek grinding jigs, fixtures and accessories. One of the most popular additions is the Square Edge Jig, which is ideal for sharpening chisels and plane irons.
