Robert Sorby ProEdge Plus Sharpening System

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.
