There are many different types of abrasive ideally suited to the purpose of metal sharpening or grinding. We have listed below the most popular ones and will add online a number of other types of abrasive belt. As well as abrasive belts we have added a high quality ultra flexible leather honing belt which can be used with the various polishing pastes. For general use we recommend aluminium oxide at about 180g working finer to 400g for final finishing before any secondary bevel is applied using an ultra fine diamond or waterstone. 3M’s Trizact abrasive is ideal for final grinding of all materials resulting in a fine edge ready to use straight off the machine. This is a different abrasive from normal convention but equates to 600G, 1200G and 3000G

This is a very good general purpose sharpening/linishing machine. Designed for use primarily with metals, it carries a 785 x 50mm belt at 498m/min. With its single speed 375W motor it can handle most small jobs in the workshop, including sanding, linishing, grinding and sharpening lathe tools for both metal and wood lathes. This machine has been designed for very fast belt changes, tracks well with a simple adjustment and has enough power to grind and shape tools without overheating or bogging down. As it comes, it has a small table, adjustable for angles, the table surface having a grid of holes to allow the dust to fall through. The belt platter is adjustable to ensure that the belt runs true, and has an optional graphite plate to reduce friction on certain tasks. The belt tension is released by a shaped handle; a spring loaded drop pin automatically holds the tension off whilst changing the belt. There is a comprehensive range of accessories that will fit this machine, some of which may be better suited to the variable speed version (103474). These can be added at any time. Polishing is achieved with the addition of the “Twist n Fix” multi purpose quick change arbor that is used to mount all of the polishing mops and wheels. This machine should be regarded as a simple linisher/ grinder/sharpener, It is really well made and simple to use. Perfect for many metal based crafts and hobbies.
