Whether you are a knife sharpener or knife fabricator the Tradesman 8 with our belt attachments, jigs and work rests will make your life easier.

This is the Tradesman 8 with your choice of two of our 8″ Precision Plated Grinding Wheels and standard tool rests.  The Variable Speed DC Whisper Drive motor and control give you powerful grinding at the right speed so you won’t over heat your tools (and you can hear yourself think).

Choose a Belt Attachment

The Belt-Over-Wheel attachment is a favorite with our sharpener customers because it like having a variable grit grinding wheel. Quick-change belts allow you to rough and hone with the same set up.   The 2″x36″ and 2″x48″ belt attachments are also great on the Tradesman 8.  Each belt attachment comes with a three piece belt kit.

Choose Grinding Wheels

Cuttermasters Precision Plated CBN Grinding Wheels are durable, long lasting and never need truing.  Our wheels are precision machined and nickel plated with CBN allowing for precise and cool grinding. Our 8″ wheels have a 5/8 bore.

Choose Attachments

The jigs by Tormek are nicely designed and work great for chisels, gouges, scissors, planar blades and more – so we developed a bracket, the T-TB, to accept their US-105 tool rest.  We also have our own mitre rest jig plate for planar blades and square tools.

Why the Tradesman Grinder?

The most powerful material remover on the planet.  Using Cuttermasters’ precision plated wheels, and with a range of 400 – 4000 rpm, you can grind anything from plastics to carbide without wheel load up or glazing.  Patent Pending.

  • Our grinding wheels have flat surfaces, sharp corners and there is virtually no dust or dressing just a good finish every time.
  • Our patented DC motor grinding system allows you to remove material without generating excessive heat.
  • The smooth flat surfaces and crisp corners allow you to sharpen tools (like reamers and end mill ends) without risking a finger in the process.
  • Precision plated wheels on powerful DC motors are here to stay.

Unparalleled value. The Tradesman is hand-built in small runs in North America by the engineers who designed it. Toycen Industries, a small Canadian company, sources the best materials and engineering to bring you the superior bench top grinder. The ultra quiet DC Motor is manufactured in North America, as is the minimalist and rugged, aluminum and steel chassis. Buying a Tradesman DC Bench Grinder provides unparalleled value because you’re buying from the same small company who designed it and built it. Give us a call any time.
