Product Information:

The Hand Plane is one of the most important tools in your shop but if it is not properly sharpened, it is useless. The Rob Cosman Angle Trainer is the perfect tool to help you develop the proper method of hand sharpening your plane blade. When you feel comfortable, you will be able to hand sharpen your plane blade like a professional. Rob Cosman has been woodworking for most of his life. While earning a B.Sc. in Industrial Technology/Furniture Design at Brigham Young University, he was Dr. Dale L. Nish's teaching assistant. Rob has also worked with many of the world's best craftsmen – including Alan Peters, Sam Maloof, Tage Frid, Monroe Robinson and Peter Korn. Rob’s a big believer in sharpening plane blades freehand because it’s efficient and fast. So fast in fact that by the time I’ve jigged my blade up to begin sharpening, Rob’s done, reassembled his plane and is making shavings thin enough to read through. That kind of fast, efficient sharpening is acquired through practice but where do you start. Start with Rob’s Angle Trainer, a triangular shaped set of free hand sharpening training wheels. The Trainer helps you learn how to hold the plane blade at the proper angle for primary and secondary bevels while actually sharpening. Before you know it, you’ll be sharpening without it and enjoying more time making curls with your plane.

    Comments about Rob Cosman Angle Trainer :

    Simple and effective Jig. Magnets hold well and the angle defines your secondary and tertiary bevels. I like this concept better than those that clamp onto the blade. They take more time and there is agreater chance of dinging the edge when removing them from your jig. I tried this jig teaching some newbies and they took to it well.

    Works well but ............

    By  Davet 03253

    from New Hampshire

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Easy To Use
    • Functions very well

    Cons

    • Label washes off

    Best Uses

    • Plane blade honing
    • Sharpening

    Comments about Rob Cosman Angle Trainer :

    The angle trainer works well but does require care when sliding the blade down to the stone. The big problem is the label with the angle numbers washes off when you are using water stones. I noticed this in time to re-mark it before all the legends were washed off.
