Overview

Air-cooled, dry sharpening system eliminates the mess of a wet system and delivers higher material removal rates without affecting the steel temper. Unique design allows for fast and easy reshaping of new or damaged chisels and planes (up to 2" wide), and fast honing of a micro bevel. Bevel angles are adjustable and are set in the sharpening port (not in a fixture or jig) so switching between angles is simple and fast. With maintenance-free tempered glass grinding wheel. No calibration is required for changing wheel diameter, and there's no need to change between fixtures, grade wheels, or move from machine to hand sharpening to achieve a razor-sharp edge. Coarse grinding for rapid shaping and micro-fine honing is in one port!

  • The system's repeatability allows you to sharpen multiple tools at any combination of angles and abrasive type without extra setup.
  • Routed airflow and heat sink system keeps tools cool without the mess of a wet system.
  • Sharpening port enables you to select desired bevel angle and sharpen precise, repeatable angles of 20°, 25°, 30° and 35° for chisels and plane irons up to 2" wide.
  • Powerful 1/5 HP motor with 580 RPM wheel speed.
  • Sharpening port lapping surface features "plunge-pull" sharpening technique.
  • Sharpening port abrasive increases burr removal and speeds sharpening.
  • Adjustable top tool rest makes freehand sharpening easier and more precise.
  • T-slot mounting system lets you mount the top tool rest and other accessories.
  • 150mm tempered glass grinding wheel provides a maintenance-free, always flat and true grinding surface on which to adhere PSA abrasives.
  • Skew cam adjustment controls bevel-edge for squareness.
  • With bench mounting tabs for easy installation to benchtop.
  • Industrial grade power connection switch with safety lockout.
  • Grounded 6-foot power cord.
