This T-8 System is exactly the same as the regular T-8, except that the Super Grind Wheel has been replaced with the SB-250 Silicon Blackstone Wheel. The Blackstone Wheel was developed for shaping and sharpening very hard and exotic alloyed steels. The combination of abrasive hardness, shape, and grain size, is optimized to work efficiently at the Tormek system's low RPM. Its faster material removal is an advantage especially when shaping tools with a large bevel surface, where the grinding pressure is limited, for example, planer blades and wood turning skews. For more details on the machine itself please see our listing for the T-8 with Super Grind Wheel (#1192529). For more details on the Silicon Blackstone Wheel please see our listing for the Wheel only (#72207). Sweden
