Description

Usually only found in machine shops, the super flat face of the granite surface plate is ideal for leveling small plane beds, flattening waterstones and general sharpening duties. Simply soak a piece of wet/dry sandpaper in water and lay it down on the stone; the capillary action of the water adheres the paper to the stone, eliminating the need for spray adhesives or PSA sandpaper. When done, wipe clean with a paper towel. This A grade plate measures 9" x 12" x 2", weighs 26 lbs. and comes with a surface map. Plate does not have ledges.

* Stable, ultra flat surface
* Flat to .0001
* Moisture and corrosion free
* Easy to clean

Nice flat hard surface

Review Summary

I purchased one of these from WoodCraft when it was on sale for $20.00. These are really nice to assist you in sharpening your plane and chisel blades. Super flat and hard so your blades come out nice and flat. I use it along with my Veritas honing jig and some sand paper.
