A. The key to consistent and fast honing is repeatability — and this guide delivers it in spades. It will set bevel angles from 15° to 54° and a range of back bevels from 10° to 20°. It can easily accommodate chisels as narrow as 1/4" and blades as wide as 2-7/8" and up to 15/32" thick. The blade-registration jig slides onto the guide body, centering and squaring the blade with an integral fence. The blade stop has discrete positions for preset bevel angles. Features a three-position eccentric roller, allowing you to hone micro-bevels quickly and accurately with only a turn of a knob. Manufactured from die-cast zinc alloy, with precision-machined brass and steel parts. For the user, this means quick, accurate sharpening and perfectly repeatable results, reducing unnecessary stone and blade wear.

Patented.

 
B. The Veritas Skew Registration Jig locks into the Mk.II 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.

Made in Canada. Patent pending.

 

C. The Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide has been designed to produce accurate and repeatable square bevels on chisel and plane blades. However, when using smoothing planes on large, flat surfaces, it is desirable to hone a slight curve, or camber, into the edge of the blade. This allows the cut to taper out on each side, and avoids plane tracks in the surface.

The Veritas Camber Roller Assembly has a barrel-shaped roller that allows limited rocking, while still maintaining an accurate and consistent bevel angle. Simply replace the

standard roller assembly with the camber assembly and hone, first applying more pressure on one side of the blade, and then on the other. Blade extension is still set using the registration jig, and the camber roller includes the standard eccentric system to allow micro-bevels to be honed.

Made in Canada. Patent pending.
