The use of abrasives for sharpening hand tools is becoming increasingly popular and due to the very sharp edges produced it is often referred to as "scary sharpening". We are pleased to say that we have now sourced a very versatile and durable abrasive film which is excellent for this application. Simply peel off the backing and attach the abrasive to a known flat surface, such as piece of float glass or granite surface plate and then by using a honing guide excellent results can be obtained. The Aluminium Oxide resin bonded abrasive, which is available in a range of grits can be lubricated with either oil or water and it is also great for flattening the soles of bench planes. Makes a great non-slip surface for jig making and for sharpening carving tools, simply wrap some around a profiled block of timber and you can get a great edge on those too.
