This second generation compact sharpening machine from Tormek, Sweden, takes the precision and stability to a whole new level. Vital functions like the motor and the main shaft are mounted in the zinc cast top, which also includes the integrated sleeves for the Universal Support. The result is a rigid machine with a significantly improved level of precision for the Universal Support, which is the base from which the Tormek jigs operate.

Tormek CEO Hakan Persson explains: "We have been able to improve the rigidity by 300%. Also, with a new Tormek design - patent pending - of the sleeves for the Universal Support we have been able to minimise the play by 50%. Combined, these improvements will affect your control of the sharpening - and increase the precision of your result."

The new cast zinc top section also has an integrated handle, an appreciated feature which makes the machine easy to move and place when necessary. Another new detail is the metal machine plate, which can be a convenient place to store the Tormek AngleMaster.

The necessary start-up accessories are included, like the Stone Grader SP-650, Handbook, DVD, AngleMaster and Honing Compound. Customise and configure your Tormek T-4 with the Tormek jigs to fit your specific sharpening needs.
