The Sorby ProEdge Plus does just what its name implies - puts a consistent, professional-quality edge on almost any hand tool, whether a turning tool, chisel, plane blade or knife. And don't be fooled by its compact size - weighing in at over 30 lbs, with a 1/4" steel plate, this is a true industrial-quality sharpener. The patented angle setter ensures that the most popular bevel angles can be set time after time, and the thick steel backing plate ensures a dead flat sharpening surface. The abrasive belts can be quickly changed for anything from rough sharpening to fine honing, and because the grit can be chosen for the quickest possible sharpening, there is far less risk of overheating your tools and damaging the steel. The ProEdge Plus includes a skew jig, a gouge jig, fingernail profiler and three different belts.Technical Details:Fixed detents for the most popular bevel angles: 90°, 80°, 60°, 45°, 35°, 30°, 25°, 20°, 15°.User can easily bypass the presets and set a custom angle.Sharpening is extremely rapid, so there is no fear of over-heating and consequently damaging your tools.Sharpening surface can be easily tilted back at any angle for maximum user comfort.No complex assembly required; the ProEdge is ready to use right out of the box.The ProEdge is a compact, well-engineered unit that can be located anywhere in the workshop.Use ProEdge aluminum oxide sharpening belts for bench and carving chisels, knives and plane irons.Use ProEdge zirconium sharpening belts for HSS turning tools, drill bits and router bits.Use ProEdge ceramic sharpening belts for rapid, heavy-duty sharpening.1/2 hp (375w) motor.700 ft (220m) per minute belt speed.To make sharpening even more accurate, the ProEdge Plus (26342) includes these accessories:A skew jig to give the correct presentation angle for turners' skew chisels.A gouge jig in the format of a V-block to prevent pivoting when sharpening a turners' gouge. This also works as a square jig for presenting square tools at 90 degrees to the sharpening belt. A fingernail profiler to create swept back wings on a turners' gouge.
This advanced model of the GRR-Ripper boasts all of the same innovative features of the GR-100 but comes with two additional accessories (see below) that improve the control and expandability of the GRR-Ripper System. The Micro Jig GRR-Ripper Advanced 3D Pushblock (GR-200) is designed to feed your workpiece more safely and more accurately than with conventional push blocks, resulting in intact fingers, less burning and less waste. With its 3-Directional control, it gives you downward, forward, and lateral pressure on the stock for maximum control. Since it acts as a movable blade guard that travels with your hand, it provides an additional safety buffer between the blade and your hands. Whether you are making razor-thin veneer strips, building miniatures, or creating exquisite furniture you will save time, materials, and fingers with the GRR-Ripper.The GR-200 includes these additional accessories:The Adjustable Spacer - This accessory adds increased gripping surface for tackling larger stock. It also adds one inch of cutting width to the GRR-Ripper and acts as a secondary balance support for small stock and straight-line ripping. Great add-on for working on the router table, and eliminating snipe.The Stabilizing Plate - The Stabilizing Plate adds a new dimension of control to the GRR-Ripper. It is particularly useful when cutting small narrow pieces of stock. Perfect for trickier cuts like resawing, bevel edging, pattern routing, and much more.The Stabilizing Plate also acts as a secondary fence that travels with the GRR-Ripper along the left side of the stock. It holds the off-cut piece in its original position through the entire cutting operation. Some users call it a "Feather Board Plate," but unlike a featherboard, it exerts no sideways pressure. Instead it simply holds the drop-off piece in position as it travels past the blade, preventing binding.Watch a video demo today by clicking on the "Videos" tab above.
The AutoRoute series of CNC machines from Axiom offers advanced features usually found only on machines in industrial environments, but at consumer-friendly prices. The AutoRoute 4 Basic is the least expensive model, with XYZ travel of 24'' x 24'' x 6'', and a universal router mount that accepts a wide variety of commonly available woodworking routers (see below). A computer need not be attached to the CNC to operate it. Instead, simply transfer your file to the included handheld controller via USB. The RichAuto A11 controller is an easy-to-use, robust controller with nearly a decade of proven results in demanding applications. It is more stable than a PC, and no updates are required. Every Axiom AutoRoute CNC machine also offers precision ball screws, prismatic guides, robust, rigid steel frames, and interlocking aluminum tables. In addition, the integrated MDF spoil boards promise exacting precision, as they can be milled flat for true perpendicularity with the spindle. Whether you're looking to upgrade your entry-level CNC, or you just want to start out with a machine that promises top-quality results and ease of use, you're sure to be pleased with the AutoRoute series from Axiom.

Router table insert plates make it easy to lift your router out and set it on the table for comfortable bit changes, height adjustments, maintenance and even to use your router free hand or with a straight edge guide. They save you from a lot of backaches, squinting and bumps on the back of the head from stooping under the table. These router plates are made of 3/8'' solid phenolic, which has naturally low-friction for easy sliding. In addition, phenolic is very stable and extremely durable. At 8-1/4'' x 11-3/4'', they fit both our current tables and most of our old tables, and work equally as well with shop-made router tables. Each plate includes an insert ring with a 1-1/2'' bit opening, plate locking bolts and router mounting hardwareNote: Since different top materials require different leveling screws, these are included with the table topsFor customers making custom router tables, we recommend the Router Plate Leveling and Locking Hardware Pack (22994, sold separately) To choose a pre-drilled plate, find your router below. If it's not listed, choose from two non-drilled plates—one with a 4'' insert ring (57293), and the other a 4-3/8'' insert ring (56845)—and drill the plate to fit your router. Plate A routers: Makita 1100; Milwaukee 5615-5624; DeWalt 616-618; Bosch MRC23 Series, 1617-1618; Ridgid 2930 Combo Kit; Hitachi M12VC (fixed and kit); Porter-Cable 690, 890, 7529, 97529 and 8529.
