In Short, 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 result.

Handle for easy movement

Makes the machine easy to place and move.

Machine plate in metal

Which makes it a convenient place to store the Tormek AngleMaster (which has magnetic feet).

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 you use it and you will always have a fresh cutting stone. Also, with the StoneGrader you get two different cutting actions (fast/fine) out of your grindstone!

  

With 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 have been improved significantly. It will improve your control of the sharpening- and your result.

The handle makes the machine easy to place and move when necessary. (So you are not tempted to make the mistake and try to lift the machine with the Universal Support!)

  

Vital parts like the motor and the main shaft are integrated with the zinc cast top.

     

 The machine place is now made of metal, which makes it convenient place to store the Tormek AngleMaster (which has magnetic feet)
