You can monitor stock removal from above with the Work Sharp's "see-through" wheel while a large port provides access from underneath. This works exceptionally well for sharpening large turning tools quickly and efficiently while also providing a means to sharpen and hone carving tools, especially the smaller profiles that require a more delicate touch. This will be the difference between sharpening and ruining a valued tool.
- Air cooled, dry sharpening system that uses maintenance free 150mm tempered glass wheels to which you adhere PSA abrasives
- Slotted "see-through" wheel for fast and precise sharpening of carving and lathe tools
- Precise and repeatable sharpening port enables sharpening of 20, 25, 30, and 35 degree angle chisels and plane irons up to 2" wide
- No jigs needed; just select angle and sharpen
- Lapping abrasive in sharpening port increases burr removal and speeds sharpening
- Rigid bevel angle settings and Skew Cam provide precise positioning of the Sharpening Port. Bevel and skew geometry are not affected by wheel diameter, chisel size, or complex user setup.
- Forced air-cooling and the sharpening port heat sink allow for higher material removal rates without affecting the steel temper
- Allows for quick reshaping of a new or damaged chisel, and fast honing of a micro bevel
- Precise bevel angles are set in the Sharpening Port, not in a fixture or jig, so switching between angles is simple and fast
- No re-calibration required for changing wheel diameter or tool size
- Coarse grind for rapid shaping and then micro-fine hone in one port
