General Tormek Questions / Re: Tormek, T-4 page 72 September Wood magazine
« Last post by Ken S on Yesterday at 04:17:36 pm »
"Sharpen your plane irons and chisels with a perfectly square edge" (from the Axminster description). This sounds like a fine new feature.  Will it be incorporated into the T7 (T8?) and, can we retrofit our present units?

Since the T4 is shipped without any jigs, including the SE-76, is the target market new buyers or existing owners who wish to upgrade?

I would be curious to know how the T4's "improved locking design and tighter tolerances" compare with the present design and tolerances of the T7.  A would also like to learn more about the "new, innovative, patent pending features" incorporated into the T4. is the "industrial motor" an upgrade from the former fifty percent duty motor?

Sweden, it is time to illuminate the party faithful.  Please give us a thorough description of the new model, and rumors of the T8.

I have just had an email from Axminster (large tool distributer in UK) with details of the T4. It has a 200mm (8") wheel.

http://www.axminster.co.uk/tormek-t-4-water-cooled-sharpening-system-with-nvr-switch?utm_source=bronto&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Image+-+Exclusive%21+See+it+in+our+stores&utm_content=R+-+NEW+Sharpening+Innovation+from+Tormek&utm_campaign=14wk36a_t4

Interesting point I noticed was the following:-

The Tormek T-4 incorporates new, innovative, patent pending features. Firstly, the zinc cast top incorporates the key components of the main shaft, Universal Support and motor assembly resulting in superb accuracy as standard. Secondly, the Universal Support is held in two sleeves in the zinc cast top, meaning that the improved locking design and tighter tolerances will give even better results. Both designs give improved accuracy and precision for easy sharpening on the new Tormek T-4.

Despite advertising this new machine, they don't have any in stock!

Hi Jeff,
Could you explain in details how to proceed to sharpen lawn mower blades on the Tormek T-7.

Thanks,

Yes, I don't have the right adapter, and it would still be a hassle to get out the vac just to sharpen a bit or two.

You must keep a pretty clean shop, Mike. There's a port on it for dust collection, you know.

I've had Drill Doctors for a long time.  They work great, but they make such a mess that I tend to avoid getting them out.  Using one always (for me) involves following up with the shop vac to clean up all the resulting dust in, under, and around the machine.  Most folks probably don't care, and it's a very cost effective way to get your bits sharp.  There's a bit of technique involved but I don't think it's anywhere near the learning curve of the DBS-22.

But for the mess reason alone I haven't ruled out the Tormek jig.

Hi,
The SVS-32 or SVS-50 would help you with those tools. Use a marker on the edge and adjust to you find the right spot.
