Veritas Sharpening System
The Veritas Mk.II power sharpening system lets you sharpen your hand tools on a stable, flat 650 rpm turntable. Set the tool rest to sharpen any straight-edged tool at a bevel angle from 15° to 45° (in 5° increments); the tool rest post has detent settings at 5° intervals. The included blade holder and blade-setting jig ensure blade squareness. Additional tool holders are available if you wish to sharpen more than one tool between grit changes. You can also use it for sharpening of tools such as gouges and V-tools.
The quick-change 8" platters that mount on the turntable accept adhesive-backed abrasive discs in grit sizes from 80x to 1200x. The system comes with two platters and four abrasive discs: 80x and 150x for mounting on the thick platter, and 320x and 1200x for mounting on the thin platter. Changing from coarse to fine discs automatically gives you a 1° angle increase to create micro-bevels. Extra platters and abrasive discs are available to add more grits or use cloth discs with honing compounds.
The turntable is driven by a V-belt from the vertically mounted, fully sealed 1/4 HP motor. Belt tension is easily adjustable by hand. Nylon dust cover included. Each system comes equipped with integral thermal overload protection, and is certified to meet CSA and UL requirements.
