FULL DESCRIPTION
With this premium performance sharpener and wide range of jigs, you can shape, sharpen and hone any type of edge tool to a mirror finish. It is powered by a reversible, variable speed, permanent-magnet motor, as used on the latest Tesla electric vehicles, which will maintain the ideal speed regardless of load applied. The low speed range means there is no risk that the edge becomes overheated and loses its hardness, giving you full control of the sharpening process, so that you do not remove more steel than necessary, making your tools last much longer.

The 220 grit aluminium oxide grinding wheel, which is cooled in a bath of water, offers the most effective combination of efficient steel removal, smooth surface finish and long stone life. When you need to refine an edge, you can use the stone grader to convert the surface of the stone to 1000 grit. Having shaped and created the edge on the stone, you finish the sharpening process on the leather honing wheel, using the honing compound to gently remove the burr, prior to honing and mirror polishing the edge. The reversible motor makes the honing and polishing processes easier and faster.

The body of the sharpener features a carry handle, is rust proof and made from impact-resistant ABS with vertical and horizontal steel bushes to provide firm support for the universal jig holder. The water trough has an extra wide mouth to prevent spillage when sharpening long edge tools and can be removed without tools for cleaning. The sharpener comes complete with a diamond truing tool to dress a worn stone to its original profile, universal jig holder, straight edge jig for chisels and plane irons, angle measuring & setting jig, stone grader and honing compound.

Rated for continuous use this is a premium wetstone sharpener that allows you to add consistent and exact cutting geometry to fine edge tools including chisels, turning tools, carving tools, knives, and plane irons. ©

Rutlands you did it again! Your daily price

Rutlands you did it again! Your daily price drop was too good to pass and I can certainly say I am not disapointed. Easy to set up and use. Quiet motor and solid in operation. I rejuvenated an old workhorse chisel in no time. Looking to increasing jigs for more repertoire.

I bought an ex demo model recently. Firstly, I've only had it a week and sharpened all of my chisels and plane blades like a mad man. That said, It really is a great tool for the price. Unfortunately - and I assume because it was ex demonstration - the spindle had been assembled the wrong way around and had been run as such. Upon reassembly, I discovered this has caused the gear to be chewed a bit. Despite this, the grinder works like a charm and with the 3-year warranty, I have no worries about it. It doesn't put me off from giving it 5* review considering the helpful customer service staff, the tool itself and the price!

Superb looking machine to have in my workshop, it is almost a shame to use it. Would recommend as a sharpening product, the results that I have been getting on plane irons and chisels are second to none.

I bought the wet stone sharpener and master jig set for my workshop. It's ideal for my little workshop as it doesn't take up much space. Prior to doing this I looked around at the competition and frankly you can't beat it on price alone. I also got a comprehensive set of jigs. Thus far I've been sharpening up my chisels, and plane blades. Next will be carving tools. I'm chuffed that it's so good and would recommend for anybody.

Farewell blunt tools! I put this off for far too long, mucking about with stones and blocks and clamps. Ugh. Nice one.
