A honing kit suitable for use on carving chisels, plane irons, bench chisels and similar tools. The kit comprises a 150mm diameter x 20mm wide buffing wheel and a bar of honing paste.
To use, the wheel needs to be mounted on an arbor such as the shaft of a grinder, or in the lathe.
The paste is pressed briefly onto the rotating disk. Lay the blade of the tool flatly on the disk and press firmly but not heavily.
The advantages of honing in this way include:-
- Ultra fast sharpening for maximum edge retention
- No overheating
- Only 1 operation (no burr formation, no honing, no finishing)
