Free Stone Offer
« on: March 02, 2020, 09:20:54 pm »
I received an Email from an online sharpening supplies company that I use,
offering free stones for life ( up to 3 ) on purchase of new T8 or T4
Very interesting offer.
Best wishes,
Tim

It's actually thru Tormek(pdf), so every seller (in the U.S. at least) should be offering it. ;)

(Do they come 'take you out' after 3)?  ;D

I was thinking about another Tormek due to laziness (changing of wheels, etc). Sounds like a decent deal. Thanks

Probably not (if you mean your broken stone)... for this to apply, you have to wear the wheel down...

Should your SG-250 wear down to ∅ 7" /178 mm, or your
SG-200 wear down to ∅ 6” /150 mm, the certificate will
entitle you to a new Tormek Original Grindstone free of
charge.

... and then ship it back to Tormek, to get a new one.

Hmmm on my T7 anything below 8" seriously interferes with the sharpening process satisfaction, given that my personal stone use is about ½" a year I don't think I would want to go 2 years of being slightly miffed at poor sharpening performance to get a free stone!

Think I would need a diamond grader and elastic band running 24 / 7 to eat the last 1" of stone  ;)

This would be a good incentive if you were buying a new unit.
Sharpen the knife blade
Hone edge until perfection
Cut with joy and ease
