Pro Edge sharpening machine


ProEdge is a revolutionary sharpening system introduced by Robert Sorby.
The ProEdge is a purpose built machine which employs an abrasive belt. It provides a quick and efficient method of putting a keen edge on each and every tool. The cool running belt avoids any overheating. The ProEdge comes complete with one aluminium oxide 120grit and one zirconium 60 grit belt. Ceramic belts are also available with enhanced performance when sharpening high speed steel blades.
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. In fact, the ProEdge can be used straight out of the box. The ProEdge 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 and buffing mops may be added to give the ProEdge even greater versatility. There are two models. The basic one shown here comes complete with aluminium oxide and zirconium belts to handle most jobs.
The ProEdge Plus (see PED01A) also includes a number of further accessories of especial value to the woodturner - a skew chisel jig, a fingernail gouge profiler and a standard gouge jig.
Various attachments and upgrades are available.
If you already own a Sorby fingernail profiler you can use that on the Pro Edge machine.
We particularly recommend that you use the ceramic belts when sharpening high speed steel tools.
Technical specification: Motor : 1/2 hp (375w) Belt speed : 700 ft (220m) per minute
Shown below is the angle adjustment device which provides rock solid accurate settings for all turning tools and other tools besides. You can also see the slot in the table which accepts various sharpening jigs (jigs come with the more expensive Pro Edge Plus)
The table can be replaced with a narrower version for small tools.
