Robert Sorby Pro-Edge Delux Sharpening System
Product Code: 17-321
Robert Sorby Pro-Edge Delux Sharpening System.
ProEdge is a revolutionary sharpening system introduced by Robert Sorby. In fact, the concept is far from new as the ProEdge largely replicates the tool sharpening system which has evolved in the Robert Sorby factory over many, many years. This compact system is now available to woodworkers whether operating in a large workshop or small shed.
Central to the ProEdge is an abrasive belt which is a quick and efficient method of putting a keen edge on each and every tool. The cool running belt avoids any overheating. The ProEdge comes complete with aluminium oxide and zirconium belts with a selection of sizes in those materials and ceramic also available.
Belts are the only parts that need to be replaced and can be purchased at a minimal cost.
The system comes with an angle setter which allows the user to accurately locate most of the common sharpening angles required by woodworkers. However, the user can easily set his own angle if he wishes to move away from any of these common pre-set angles - 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 45, 60, 80 and 90 degrees.
The angle setter ensures that the same angle can be achieved accurately time after time. There is no complex setting up involved. In fact, the ProEdge can be used straight out of the box.
The ProEdge is ideal for those who need to sharpen carving tools, bench chisels, framing chisels, turning tools, plane irons, router bits, garden tools and much more.
There are additional attachments to help the turner overcome sharpening difficulties with skew chisels, standard and fingernail profile gouges.
As optional extras honing wheels and buffing mops may be added to give the ProEdge even greater versatility.
The ProEdge Plus also includes a number of further accessories of especial value to the woodturner - a skew chisel jig, a fingernail gouge profiler and a standard gouge jig.
The skew chisel jig, fingernail and standard gouge jigs may also be used along with an attachment table (447JAT) to the Robert Sorby Sharpening System (refs 446 and 447).
For those working with mini or midi tools we have recently introduced a short tool rest (ref. PESPC). This measures 1" (25mm) in length - compared with 2.3/8" (60mm) for the standard rest - thereby allowing the user to sharpen shorter tools without fouling or catching on the rest.
