FULL DESCRIPTION
This kit features the wetstone sharpener with jigs that are specifically designed for the shaping and sharpening of fine edge woodworking tools, knives, turning tools and carving tools. The kit includes R7550 wetstone sharpener, R7556 plane blade jig, R7558 knife jig, R7557 turning tool jig, R7560 carving tool jig, R7561 profiled leather honing wheel and the R7563 tool rest jig.

Wetstone Sharpener
With this premium performance sharpener 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 it 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.

Plane Blade Jig
This is the finest and easiest jig to use for the precise and consistent sharpening and honing of hand plane blades. Hand plane blades have a slight camber on either side of their edge. Using a straight edge jig can help create this camber but it takes time and relies on eye judgement. With this jig, your blade is automatically positioned at the centre of the jig and the blade is rocked to create the camber. The angle at which the jig can rock is adjustable by rotating two adjustment knobs on the underside of the jig. The jig can hold any blade up to 70mm in width.

Knife Jig
This knife jig with its 100mm wide clamping face allows for the sharpening of all lengths of knives. The mouth of the clamp opens from 1mm to 10mm accept varying thicknesses of blade found on accommodate kitchen, hunting and pen knives. The jig sits freely on the bar of the universal jig holder allowing you to follow the curve of the blade to create an even bevel. The angle of the edge can be fine tuned by turning the handle clock wise or anti-clockwise.

Turning Tool Jig
This turning tool jig will help deliver a perfectly symmetrical grind on bowl, spindle and roughing gouges up to 36mm in width. Supplied in two parts, the design allows you to pivot your gouge horizontally and vertically to control and perfect both the side grind and nose angle. Once mounted onto the support arm, the jig can be locked in to position, meaning your grind can be repeated on multiple gouges to provide a consistent edge geometry.

Carving Tool Jig
This carving tool jig rests freely against the bar of the universal jig holder to keep the carving tool equidistant from the grind stone, to ensure a repeatable grind angle across the whole bevel edge. The V shape design automatically clamps the carving tool to the centre of the jig. Once the angle has been set simply holding the jig against the bar and applying slight pressure provides a consistent edge geometry.

Profiled Leather Honing Wheel
This profiled leather honing wheel is used for honing and polishing the inside of woodturning bowl, spindle and rouging gouges and carving gouges and V tools.

Tool Rest Jig
This 110mm by 90mm tool rest slides on to the arm of the universal jig holder to provide a large and firm supporting platform when sharpening your tools. ©

What a truly lovely machine, it is so smooth running and quiet. Excellent results as well, especially if one purchases the jig sets to aid sharpening. I honestly believe this is comparable with the top of the range Tormek machines, yet half the price. The included out of the box accessories are well thought through and useful, especially the diamond truing tool to ensure the wheel is perfectly flat.
