Overview

Tormek's new T-7 pairs an already widely acclaimed sharpening system with two new innovations for enhanced accuracy, convenience and versatility. With the new Square Edge Jig, your blades will be automatically squared to the grinding wheel without the need for picky adjustments. Since chisels and plane blades are mounted with their flat backs against a large, flat reference surface, there is no risk of rocking or tipping once the jig is tightened down. The T-7 also includes the new Truing and Dressing Tool, which uses a diamond cutter to return worn, out-of-round wheels to like-new condition. Precision screw feed allows you to grade the wheel for a fine or coarse grade by simply varying the rate of feed. Plus, the standard system now includes the SP-650 Stone Grader. Simply press it onto the wheel to grade the wheel up to 1000 grit and flip it over to return the wheel to coarse grinding.

Wet stone grinding with a slow running speed gives you full control while grinding. The wheel will not shatter, and there are no dangerous sparks. The quiet vibration-free industrial motor is rated for continuous operation, and the honing wheel has a coupling for fast removal.

With the Tormek System, you do BOTH the initial grinding (when you shape the tool and create the optimal edge angle) and the sharpening on the same grindstone. The grindstone can easily be changed from fast grinding to fine sharpening. Because the grinding and sharpening utilize water cooling, there is no risk of burning the edge and drawing the hardening from the steel. The honing and polishing is carried out on a leather honing wheel.

Features:

  • Square Edge Jig accepts blades up to 76mm or 3" in width.
  • Square Edge Jig features safety stops, which prevent the tool from slipping off the stone.
  • Truing and Dressing Tool with screw feed: Trues the grindstone exactly round and flat. Guided by the Universal Support, which also guides the jigs. Dual knobs for smooth feed across the stone.
  • Stainless steel hardware: Prevents rust and wear on bearings.
  • Universal Support with acme thread: Round section without flat machining makes it faster to change position.
  • Improved Horizontal Base: Double locking screws and tighter fit for maximum precision.
  • Micro Adjust with scale: For a predetermined cutting depth when using the TT-50 Truing and Dressing Tool.
  • 7-year warranty applies to all customers, including industrial users.

I bought the TORMEK T-7 for...

JOE B from Collierville, TN Posted January 5, 2013
I bought the TORMEK T-7 for my Christmas present so I could sharpen my lathe tools. I had so much fun I sharpened all my chisels and finally my jointer knives. I started looking for things to sharpen. I even called my friend and told him I wanted to sharpen his carving tools. I heartily concur what everyone else said. It may be a little expensive but you won't regret buying it. My tools have never been sharper. I do recommend buying the turntable you will get tired of picking it up and turning it around.

I'll just add to the already...

I'll just add to the already glowing reviews on the Tormek T-7. Originally, I was going to purchase a Worksharp 3000. I'm sure it's a good product, but after doing more research, I decided on a Tormek T-3. Doing more research, the T-7 offered a stone grader and diamond dressing tool which you will eventually need as your stone becomes out of round. I've now owned the T-7 for about 2 weeks now and I absolutely love it. Yes, it's pricey, but I saved up for it and I think you would be wise to save your money on stones, sandpaper, etcetera and just purchase the T-7. I also purchased the hand tool kit since I am a cook and now sharpen all my knives on the Tormek. All I can say is WOW! My hand chisels are super sharp and I can literally cut paper with them. My knives have never been sharper. I have a bench plane from Home Depot and I now know what it can do because it is sharp. I don't like messing with stones or diamond files. The Tormek T-7 makes sharpening all your tools easy and scary sharp. I love my Tormek!
