Our Ultimate Power Sharpener How to Use Our Ultimate Power Sharpener
Originally invented as a 1″ belt sander, this Canadian made machine has proven to be the ultimate tool and knife sharpener with a few minor changes we have made.
We installed a quality 1/4 hp electrical motor that is safety approved. Then we wired it so the motor will run in a clockwise motion. By running away from the operator (clockwise), you therefore have much more control when sharpening or stropping.
The two pulley ratio combined with load of our leather belt reduces the rpm’s to an estimated 1300 rpm’s which also reduces the chances of overheating or burning the tools edge. We include a state-of-art Trizact A30 Grinding Belt (1″x 42″ – approx 700 grit) 3 Aluminum Oxide Belts in 80, 120 and 320 grits and ‘Our Chipping Away’ Heavy Duty Leather Stropping Belt (1.1/8″x 42″) as described below. We also include a sanding platform as shown in the photo gallery.
Ultimate Power SharpenerFantastic for all your palm size tools ~ even those pesky V-tools. The belts run safely in a clockwise direction away from you. Excellent for your standard size chisels and gouges! Its easy to rest the tool handle on your bench to assure the correct bevel is kept when grinding. Great for knives! The belts run in front of a backing plate which means you get a true flat surface on your knives and chisels without rounding the edge over. You will love this machine!
