The Multi-Sharp ATT3001 ‘Whetstone’ Chisel & Plane Blade Sharpener features a traditional leather strop removes any burr, for a razor-sharp edge.
Water-cooling is acknowledged by professionals to hone the finest edges. The ‘ Whetstone’ uses re-circulating water to eliminate over-heating of the blade edge and loss of steel temper –‘blueing’. Simply fill the built-in reservoir with water, turn on the power drill and a continuous film of water covers the face of the grinding wheel.
‘Whetstone’ sharpens even badly damaged chisels / plane blades quickly, because it uses the relatively high power / torque of an electric drill. The chisel clamp accurately holds the blade at the selected angle for a precision ground edge.
The Tool Rest gives a firm base for re-pointing and re-edging a whole range of small tools including cold chisels, bradawls, screwdrivers, centre-punches, scribers, wood carving / turning tools, gouges etc. Marked angles on the rest indicate the tip angle.
