    Silicon carbide is ideal for flattening oil and water stones or lapping plane bottoms and blades. Just sprinkle the grit on a piece of glass or a steel lapping plate, add a shot of oil or water (as required), and lap the item flat. This fast and easy process lets you keep all of your stones dead flat.

    90x is used for most applications, while the finer grits are used to put a silky finish on plane bottoms or blades. Grits are available individually or as a set of five 2 oz containers of 90x, 180x, 280x, 400x and 600x and instructions. The 90x is also available in a larger 4 oz container.

    Using PSA-backed plastic laminate sheets on glass speeds up the process, but is not mandatory.

  • This practical tool provides you with the ability to transfer measurements accurately and efficiently. This system has been is use for centuries and is still used to create 'story sticks' for fit outs and jobs where nothing is square, It is also ideal to check diagonals or to mark out for repetition jobs. Using material 19mm x 6mm you are able to use standard timber sizes and rip two 6mm strips from one edge. They are made of durable ABS plastic and solid brass.

  • Skews are among the trickiest tools to use in turning without causing digs.

    To prevent digs, this jig allows you to grind a slight radius rather than a straight 20° skew. It can be used on just about any grinder; all you need to do is drill a 6.4mm (1/4in) hole in the tool rest (if required) to hold the base pin.

    The radius of the grind is determined by the amount the skew projects from the jig. After grinding one side, you flip the skew to the other side of the jig and repeat.

    The skew is clamped in position, which leaves both hands free to regulate grinding pressure and travel across the wheel.

    The pin is steel; otherwise, the jig is brass and anodized aluminum.

  • This grinding jig works with any power or hand grinder that has a tool rest.

    Put a tool in the jig, slide it against the alignment pin and one clamping thumbscrew to square it, adjust the blade projection for bevel angle, and tighten in place. The tool is now held squarely in the jig at the chosen bevel angle. Slide the jig back and forth across the tool rest and stone face to sharpen the tool.

    The brass clamping bolts have nylon washers to prevent galling; other parts are made from hard aluminum, further hardened by anodizing to prevent wear. High-friction pads ensure solid clamping without inadvertent misalignment.

    The jig fits in the slot of the Veritas® Grinder Tool Rest (05-M-2301); the riding ledges adapt it to other tool rests.

  • The major weakness of most bench grinders is that the tool rests are virtually useless. It is nearly impossible to find one with a rest that is solid and square.

    The Veritas® Grinder Tool Rest can be used with 6in or 8in utility bench grinders and many belt sanders/grinders. It mounts directly to the bench in front of the grinder and can be readily folded out of the way for freehand grinding.

    The 102mm wide table straddles wheels up to 25mm wide. It is grooved for sliding jigs and center drilled for rotating jigs. The slotted arms allow a wide range of angular and height adjustments. Spring-loaded gyratory handles lock it solidly in position and can be rotated out of the way after locking. You can easily move it from one grinder to another or quickly remove it from the bench.

    Accurately machined, anodized aluminum construction. Included is an angle-setting gauge to set the table to the common bevel angles of 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°.

  • These dogs can be used anywhere you can drill a 3/4" hole. You can make a long clamp of any length by drilling 3/4" holes in a piece of 150x50mm timber.

  • This honing compound, which took over two years to develop, is the most effective on the market.

    It is a blend of both chromium and aluminum oxide to give the best combination of cutting speed and fine finish. The bonding is formulated for ease of charging. It will adhere equally well to felt, leather or wood.

    Cuts quickly but it leaves a mirror finish with a light wax film. The average size of scratch pattern it leaves behind is 0.5 microns or 0.00002in. Ideal for carving tools and firmer gouges, it can be used for final honing of almost any tool. Used with a felt wheel or leather belt for power honing or with a leather strop for hand honing.

  • Half the secret of sharpening is the control of blade geometry. Nothing is handier than a bevel gauge for quickly checking the grind angle of chisels, plane blades, turning tools, etc. A quick check confirms the angle last used for grinding or honing so that the edge geometry can be maintained.

    The Veritas bevel gauge has seven individual slots that will measure the most commonly used angles from 15° to 45° in 5° increments. Your eye is a fine instrument; it can easily interpolate other angles in the range, angles like 24° or 26°.

    The slots on the gauge are about 19mm deep for good registration. The pocket-sized disc is 63mm in diameter with a center hole for hanging it on a nail.

    Made of solid brass, which will not damage a honed edge and made in USA.

  • Made from die-cast aluminium (pre-drilled for mounting near your lathe), it uses a knife-edged steel blade to score the end of a work piece. You set a square or cylinder (up to 150mm across) in the marker, tap it with a mallet, turn the wood approximately 90 degrees and tap it again. The result is two score lines that intersect at the exact centre of the wood.

  • The key to consistent and fast honing is repeatability – and this guide delivers it in spades. Whether you're a sharpening veteran or just starting out, this versatile guide lets you concentrate on sharpening without worrying about controlling blade angle at the same time. This makes your honing reliable, accurate and consistent.

    The original standard Mk II honing guide includes the standard clamping head, straight roller base and angle registration jig. It's the option most useful for woodworkers who mostly use planes and other wide blades. It accepts blades between 12.7mm and 73.0mm wide and up to 11.9mm thick, including skew blades. It hones bevel angles from 15° to 54° and back bevels from 10° to 20°.

    Offering an impressive range of angle settings, the integral blade angle registration jig squares the blade and sets the bevel angle in one easy step. A scale and sighting mark help center blades when using the standard head. Once the blade is clamped, the jig slides off the guide.

    The optional Veritas Skew Registration Jig locks into the MkII honing guide to make quick work of setting both skew and bevel angles (left- or right-hand) of chisel and plane blades.

    The jig's machined aluminum base provides skew angle markings that are laser etched for accuracy and legibility. The skew angle graduations cover the range of 10° to 45° in 5° increments, and there are additional marks (18°, 22°, 28°) to cover the angles of popular skew plane blades.

    The base has four distinct tracks providing four bevel angle settings: 20°, 25°, 30°, and 35°. (The honing guide's eccentric roller allows variation from these angles for creating a micro-bevel.) The unique sliding fence with blade stop allows you to match an existing skew angle visually – even if it is non-standard.

    The included straight roller hones straight edges. At 50.8mm wide, it provides a stable base for even the narrowest of blades. The barrel-shaped camber roller (available separately) lets you rock the guide slightly to hone a slight curve or camber into a blade edge, eliminating blade tracks when planing.
