Product Information:

Usually only found in machine shops, the super flat face of the granite surface plate is ideal for leveling small plane beds, flattening waterstones and general sharpening duties. Simply soak a piece of wet/dry sandpaper in water and lay it down on the stone; the capillary action of the water adheres the paper to the stone, eliminating the need for spray adhesives or PSA sandpaper. When done, wipe clean with a paper towel. This A grade plate measures 9" x 12" x 2", weighs 26 lbs. and comes with a surface map. Plate does not have ledges.

    Comments about Granite Surface Plate 9" x 12" x 2" A Grade :

    I have saved some pretty gnarly looking blades with this stone. It is probably the best sharpening investment I have made ever. I use this with Scary Sharp method of sharpening large blades. Great value for the dollar invested.

    Comments about Granite Surface Plate 9" x 12" x 2" A Grade :

    I bought this a couple months ago and just used it the other day to sharpen a kitchen knife and one of my chisels. By wetting some wet/dry sandpaper and laying it on the slab, I was able to get a very good edge on both items. I am a beginner so I do need much more practice, especially holding the blades at the correct angles but it still did an excellent job for a fraction of the price you would pay for sharpening stones. It is very heavy for the size but that is a benefit since it doesn't slide around while using it.

    Very nice granite slab, super heavy (good and bad), non-adhesive lapping film sticks like glue with a little water and patience, then it's great for going to town!

    Comments about Granite Surface Plate 9" x 12" x 2" A Grade :

    Polished the backs of all my chisels and honed a sharp edge to each. Using spray adhesive to hold the wet/dry sanding sheets in place was an easy and simple solution and worked like a charm. Now my chisels all have sharp edges. A great investment at a very reasonable price.

    The first granite plate I ordered was received with a 3 inch along crack along one edge that penetrated more than half way through the thickness. I called WC customer Service and they immediately shipped out a replacement that was received in days and in perfect condition. Thank YOU

    The flattest surface you will ever have for sharpening plane irons, chisels and knives. Great surface to polish and deburr parts. Works great with wet/dry ultra fine grit sand paper. A must have surface to use to measure part with a indicator. The sale price made this an extremely great buy and value.
