01 Nov A Variable Speed Wet Sharpener
The new 10” benchtop sharpener from JET Tools (model JWS-10, item 727100) has a slow speed, water lubed grinding wheel and a clever system of jigs and fixtures to address tools at exactly the correct angle. The leather strop then hones and refines the tool to a polished razor edge as it removes burrs. It includes a 220-grit aluminum oxide grinding wheel, a leather strop wheel, a support arm, a stone grader, a straightedge jig, leather honing compound, an angle measuring device and a chisel angle jig. The variable speed accommodates different steel grades and tools. The machine comes with a 3-year warranty, and the company offers a wide range of optional accessories such as a plane camber jig and a diamond truing stone.
