Product Details

Sharpening System includes:
• 8" Water-Cooled Wetstone Sharpening System
• F Support Arm
• Straight Edge Jig
• Angle Setting Jig
• Honing Paste

This water-cooled wetstone system will reshape, sharpen and create a razor sharp mirror finish to a multitude of tools including chisels, plane blades, knives, scissors, carving tools and woodturning tools. The 180 watt high-torque motor is designed to prevent the sharpening wheel from slowing down or stalling when working on large tools and the power switch allows the motor to operate in forward and reverse direction.

The 220 grit monocrystalline grinding wheel runs in a bath of water and allows you to reshape, remove nicks and sharpen your tools to an extremely precise edge without causing damage or brittleness to the steel. The extra large water trough stops water dripping from long bladed tools, preventing spillage on to your workbench. Once an edge has been achieved on the grinding wheel, you then use the leather wheel to hone and create a razor sharp, mirror finish to the workpiece.

The body of the grinder features a carry handle for easy transportation and rubber feet to minimise vibration, allowing for a comfortable sharpening experience. The system is supplied with an F arm that is used for holding a multitude of optional sharpening jigs. The diameter of the arm is industry standard for use with varying brands of jigs. The F arm can be used either vertically or horizontally and can be adjusted in height to suit the tool being sharpened.

The kit also comes complete with straight edge jig which is used for sharpening chisels, plane irons and straight blade tools; an angle setting jig to achieve a desired bevel angle and honing compound to be used on the leather wheel to produce a mirror finish to your tools. This is an excellent sharpening system that will prove invaluable around the home or workshop.

Peter Brown

Excellent product, easy to use with great results. Totally recommend.

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 Carmel

This is a very solid sharpening machine that does exactly as I need it to. It sits still under pressure, slowly grinding a new edge, before using the leather wheel to hone to a razor sharp finish. Well made and well priced.

Alf Jones

A little gem of a machine.

Ian Andrews

Lovely little machine at the right price. Only took a few minutes to make up a jig to sharpen our Chipper Blades which are 5" long and 3/4" thick. They come off like razors. Very pleased, as will save the cost of the machine in less than a few months.

Mark Paterson

Lots of very similar machines from various companies. I will be honest and went for this based on price.
After a couple of first time attempts using a few of the jugs I purchased with this machine I cannot be more happy.
My chisels have never been so honed and sharp.
The same is said for my plane blades.
I will be purchasing a lathe soon and will look forward to trying the gouges(I have yet to buy) through this machine

AP

Everything good except for the fact that the diamond truing tool, mentioned in the setting up instructions, is not actually included and is an additional part of the 'bundle', then making the machine quite a bit more expensive.

Peter B

My woodturning club recently invested in this wetstone machine. So far it has mainly been used to sharpen roughing and spindle gouges. The stone appears quite hard and unlike our old Tormek machine is not leaving grooves on the stone surface. It could be that the stone on our old Tormek may have gone soft over the years of being submerged. The consensus is very positive and a few members have said they will be buying one. Instruction though leave a lot to be desired.

T Rother

Like the other I would also strongly recommend this machine. It's rock solid in use and does all you expect it to. Instruction are far from legible, however it is quite a simple set up process.

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.

P.Duncan

I spent over 4 hours the first day I received this wetstone machine and sharpened every knife, pair of scissors and wood chisel I could lay my hands on. Excellent piece of kit and well worth the investment.

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.
