With the Tormek T-4 you get a high quality machine ideal for home and hobby work. You get access to the extensive Tormek jig system and can sharpen practically all common edge tools.
Tormek T-4 is an enhancement of the T-3 model taking 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 also includes integrated sleeves for the Universal Support. This advanced design ensures an unbeatable precision for the Universal Support, which control all jigs and accessories.
Like the larger Tormek models, the T-4 is equipped with the Tormek Original Grindstone. It is optimized to combine efficient steel removal, smooth surface finish and a long life. With the included Stone Grader, you can alter the stone surface from 220 grit to about a 1000 grit surface, giving you two different sharpening qualities in one stone.
The T-4 is well suited for sharpening chisels, knives, scissors and smaller tools like carving tools. It also works with turning tools and drill bits, but for plane irons and molding knives, we recommend one of the larger Tormek machine models. Note that a few shapes of gouges cannot be honed with the SVD-186 Gouge Jig on the leather honing wheel due to the compact size of the Tormek T-4. These tools can be honed freehand instead.
The motor is rated for 30-minutes continuous use at a time. That is usually more than enough for the house need, but if you sharpen more, we advise you to take a look at one of the larger Tormek machine models, which can run continuously.
Tormek T-4 is delivered with the Stone Grader SP-650, the AngleMaster WM-200, Honing compound PA-70 and the Tormek Handbook on sharpening. Configure the T-4 with your choice of jigs according to the tools that you are to sharpen (sold separately).
Tormek T-4 details
With the sleeves for the Universal Support now being cast in the zinc top, together with the new Tormek stadium shaped design of the holes (patent pending) – the precision has been improved by 300% compared to the T-3.
The handle makes the machine easy to move and position. So you are not tempted to make the mistake and try to lift the machine with the Universal Support.
Vitals parts like the motor and the main shaft are integrated with the zinc cast top.
The machine plate is now made of metal, which makes a convenient place to store the Tormek AngleMaster (which has magnetic feet).
How does the T-4 differ from the T-3?
Precision improved by over 300%
This will improve your control of the sharpening – and the precision of your results.
Handle for easy movement
Which makes it a convenient place to store the Tormek AngleMaster (which has magnetic feet). Scale for stone diameter.
Jig for straight edges not included
Now you are able to configure your Tormek right from the start with the jigs that fit your sharpening needs. For example, if you only sharpen knives you will not have to pay for something you will not use.
Stone Grader included (because you need it)
Regardless of what tool you will sharpen, you will need it, so we decided to include it from the start. Make sure to use it and you will always have a fresh cutting stone. Also, with the Stone Grader, you get two different cutting actions (fast/fine) out of your grindstone!
How does the T-4 precision compare to the larger T-8 machine?
Thanks to the patented zinc cast machine head, we can achieve the same precision as with T-8.
