Description

Danish made, slow speed water bath grinder suited to sharpening a wide range of edge tools. The machine has a stall-free, tooth belt drive, a reversing switch and adjustable tool rest. Unlike with other competitors machines water can be left in this machine without the stone going pear shaped and requiring extensive dressing. A range of accessory jigs allow sharpening of gouges, scissors, knives, jointer blades and more.

 

Water bath grinders are far safer than high speed bench grinders which are rarely if ever optimised for tool sharpening.  The wheel runs in water and the tool is effectively ground underwater which elimintaes heating of the tool and consequent loss of edge holding character. The other advantage is that the process happens much slower and in a more controllable fashion.
