Description

The finest edge you can get on any tool is with a strop or a buffing wheel. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get that edge without rounding the bevel somewhat when using a wheel. In certain cases (such as with carving tools), a rounded bevel may be desirable, but with chisels and plane blades it is best to maintain a predetermined bevel angle. A hard felt wheel is best for that.

When the wheel is dressed with our blade honing compound, the edge obtained is comparable to most razor blades.

A medium felt wheel is still very firm, but is more suitable for carving tools where controlled bevel rounding is desirable to give edge strength.

A narrow, medium felt wheel is best for the inside of carving gouges.

All our felt wheels are bored for 5/8" diameter arbors, but a 1/2" bushing is provided. Maximum 3600 rpm.

Nominal Imperial sizes are given for easier reference. Actual diameters are 150mm (5 7/8") and widths of 13mm (33/64"), 20mm (25/32"), and 25mm (63/64").
