I bought the Tormek T-3; and then realized that it was the weaker, smaller brother of the T-7, so I returned it and bought the T-7. Overall, I haven’t found it that difficult to use; the instruction book is very clear and well written. I’m not a fan of flattening the backs of plane/chisel irons on the side of the wheel; I find it quicker to use some coarse sandpaper and a granite block. I use the T-7 to establish the primary bevel on my tools and for sharpening a few of my chisels. I’m not convinced though that it gets the edges as sharp as using the scary sharp method up 2000 grit and then waterstones up to a 8000 grit which is my regular sharpening method.
