The Robert Sorby Pro Edge Sharpening System is a revolutionary sharpening system introduced by Robert Sorby.
In fact, the concept is far from new. It 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 Pro Edge 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.
All of the models come complete with aluminium oxide and zirconium belts. There are selection of grits in those materials and ceramic and Trizact belts also available.
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 and it can be used straight out of the box.
The Pro Edge 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, buffing mops and knife jigs may be added to give even greater versatility.
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
