Tormek T-4 Water Cooled Grinding Machine

Posted by Kimberly Maples on

If you are looking to sharpen your tools with the precision and result of that done by a bladesmith, look no further. The Tormek T-4 uses water cooling and low RPM’s to keep the heat generation to a bare minimum. This eliminates the loss of hardness that comes along with high speed and high heat grinding. Since heat build up damages steel, the T-4 runs cool enough that every blade sharpened is cool enough to touch without a second thought.

The Tormek T-4 sharpens in seconds with accuracy! No sparks, no dust and the wheel turns slow so its not only easy to control you can do detailed work without getting off track. You can measure what angle you want and the blade comes out sharp enough for any cutting task. The water cooled, keeps the blade tempered and hands soft. 

An upgrade from the T‑3 model, the T-4 brings the precision and stability to a completely new level. Vital functions like the motor and the main shaft are mounted in the zinc cast top which includes the integrated sleeves for the Universal Support. This advanced design ensures an unbeatable precision for the Universal Support, which is the foundation of the Tormek jig system.
