  • Abrasive Lapping Grit Kit 05-M-0101

    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.

  • Bench Stone Holder BSH-100

    Stop your water stone sliding all over the bench. Made in Japan of quality stainless steel and non-slip rubber so that it can be used to suspend in your water bath when not in use, this will hold stones of any width and thickness and a length of 180-230mm.

  • Brass Bevel Angle Gauge 50-K-0901

    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.

  • Deluxe Honing Guide MJ-847

    This guide will clamp blades and chisels anywhere from 0 – 63mm by sandwiching the blade between the base and clamp. The brass nuts and nylon washers make it easy to have good clamping pressure without over-tightening and damaging your tool or the guide.

    The 40mm-wide brass roller provides stability when rolling on the stone. This can be removed to expose a ledge that can then be run against your bench grinder tool rest to use as a straight grinding jig.

  • Grey Iron Lapping Plate 05-M-2020

    Measuring 305 x 105 x 29mm high and weighing approximately 6.35kg, this is one substantial lapping plate! Made from an iron chosen for its dimensional stability and material consistency (you won't find blade-scratching carbides in the material), the bottom and sides are machined, and the top is ground flat to within 0.025mm over the entire surface. The unique channel design, optimized for a figure-eight lapping pattern, serves to eliminate resistance from hydraulic lock and captures excess oil, abrasive and slurry.

    For fingertip safety, the channels have been chamfered to eliminate sharp edges and corners. Not intended for heavy material removal, it is designed to condition or smooth previously ground surfaces and is used with light mineral or honing oil and silicon carbide (SiC) abrasive grit.

    Veritas offer a range of grits, but recommend 280x for twisted, wavy or linished objects, 400x for ground surfaces with a slightly rough texture, and 600x for surfaces requiring little material removal. While any grit size will ultimately achieve the same end result (since particles become progressively finer during the lapping process), the coarser the abrasive, the longer it takes to achieve a smooth surface.

    A useful tool for improving the surface quality of plane soles, blades and chisels, it will lap materials up to the same surface area of the lapping plate, accommodating even a jack plane sole.

  • Lubricant/Rust Inhibitor Camellia Oil CO-240

    Japanese craftsmen have used this oil for generations as an effective rust inhibitor. It can also be used a liquid lubricant when sharpening if water is not suitable.

  • MK II Sharpening System

    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.

  • Stone Pond 05-M-2006

    The Stone Pond is a complete system to store, use and maintain water stones up to 305mm long. Stones can be stored, ready for use, in a stand that also clamps them and provides a base for lapping. The twin-clamping system holds both coarse and fine stones at the same time and the quick-acting cam clamps are fully adjustable. There is ample space for three or more bench stones. Stones are kept clean and evaporation is minimized.

    The clamp hardware is stainless steel, anodized aluminum, and glass-reinforced plastic. The tough, rigid ABS case has high-friction pads for non-slip use. The lapping system is a glass plate, a sheet of PSA-backed plastic laminate, and 90x silicon carbide. The safety-glass top is guaranteed to be flat enough to allow you to lap a stone to a flatness better than 0.025mm per 25mm of stone length. You can put your coarse stone (800x, 1000x or 1200x) in the water and leave your wooden-based finishing stone (4000x or 8000x) clamped on a bar. For stones sitting in the water, ribs on the box bottom keep them clear of any sludge. The clamping and lapping part of the system can be used equally effectively with oil stones.

    This is a fast, clean, dependable system for use with all of your bench water stones.
