Professional Model Diamond Power Hone
After a lot of feedback and recommendations from engravers of all classes I have designed this new Pro Model hone below I have listed all of the key features and why they were implemented.
Variable speed up to 3000 RPM most of the Pros felt the Hi speed of 4200 was a little too fast and could damage the tool steel. So I have set the max speed to 3000 RPM
180 - 600 - 2200 disks included -- by not binding the disks as a dual sided unit we now offer more grit options which will reduce wear on the 2200 polish disk and speed sharpening
Very Powerful motor.
- 100 to 240 Volt input makes this hone universal to most countries with the correct IEC cord set. There are a few engravers that travel and this feature makes the hone a take along tool.
- Indexed speed control dial for repeated speed settings when you have found the speed best for you can simply dial it back the next time.
- 10 turn pot. for full range control --- I used a linear pot so the ramping of the speed is relatively constant by that I mean the somewhere between 5 and 6 turns you are at 1/2 speed or 1500 RPM so the calculate the speeds is very easy.
- Soft start motor control -- this keeps the hone from jumping if switched on at Hi speed it also reduces the overtightening of the nut and reduces bearing wear.
- Adjustable disk height -- allows the use of the Lindsay, Hamler and GRS fixtures without additional platforms.
- Three Diamond disks included -- will do almost all of the sharpening needed for everyday engraving.
- 180 grit for fast roughing
- 600 for cleaning up the roughing
- 2200 for polishing face and heels
- "T" handle included for disk ht. adjustments. -- Height adjustments can be made without removing the disk.
- Standard knurled nut for disk mounting
- Durable steel case
- Hone ships with 1/2" disk height for the Lindsay
- Height is adjustable from 1/2" to 1 3/4" to work with the above sharpening fixtures.
This is a true workhorse and will serve you for years.
Made to run all day every day.
- Less time sharpening means more time to engrave and that is what you
get paid for
