Tormek T-4: Getting Started with Alan Holtham
Learn how to get started with your Tormek T-4 sharpening system. Alan Holtham, English woodturner and journalist, guide you through the set ups and features along with a few useful tips.
• Precision improved by over 300%
This will improve your control of the sharpening – and the precision of your results.
• Handle for easy movement
Makes the machine easy to place and put away.
• Machine plate in metal
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.
