Tradesman Edge 12 Workstation Wet or Dry Belt or Waterbath Wheel or Belt
This machine came into existence because I wanted one!
I liked the Geared belt with a beast DC motor.
It occurred to me there is not much material present when finishing an edge. Smooth quiet accurate abrasive with a controlled belt speed is essential to achieve a microscopically perfect fine edge.
A light, accurate touch is also required (I’m still working on the light accurate touch part).
So the mission became ~~ Build one get it on the bench and let the training begin!
Now we cant keep them in stock 🙂 and we are learning a lot from our friends who really know how to sharpen !
