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 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
How does the T-4 precision compare to the larger T-7 machine?
Thanks to the patented zinc cast machine head, we can achieve the same precision as with T-7, which is made with 3 mm steel housing with precision sleeves for the Universal Support.
The WM-200 gives angle setting with pin point accuracy from 15° to 75° on grindstones of 6" to 10" in diameter, thus taking into account wear after years of use. The WM-200 is also provided with angle checking notches around its edge to enable bevel angles to be repeated or progress checked.(Supplied as standard with 1206, 2006 and T-7).
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!
