Product Details

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 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. This sharpener has a 3 year warranty, in the event that it fails due to a material or manufacturing defect the component will be replaced free of charge. ©

Joseph Winters

Runs very quietly and smoothly. The variable speed control is a real advantage as you can start slow and gradually build up speed once you have determined that your sharpening angles are correct. Diamond sharpening tool is a must if your working on HSS tools as the stone soon wears - if like me you have over 20 turning tools to sharpen. Overall very pleased with this wetstone and would recommend.

John P

I looked at a number of wetstone sharpeners on the market including the Scheppach, Record and . I choose this one because it runs very smoothly without hardly and noise and the jigs to not judder or wander under load. It also has a powerful motor which I need because I will be sharpening plane irons which are up to 50mm wide and can be extremely hard.

Peter Wright

As a woodcarver I need to maintain the cutting profiles and edges on my chisels at all times, particularly when working on hardwoods. This wetstone sharpener has proved to be a good choice. The sharpening stone is of a high quality and does not wear as quickly as others I have used. The rotational speed in acceptable and does not cause the water to spill over the trough. The motor is very quiet and vibration is minimal. The cast aluminium plate holds the jig arm rigidly in place minimising movement when working on long neck tools. So far I am impressed.

Simon Trott

Good all round sharpening machine that I use on a regular basis in my workshop. Happily recommend it to any fellow woodworker. Excellent range of jigs available is an advantage as well.

James Elgar

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.

Henry Ashmore

What a truely 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.
