Robert Sorby PED01A ProEdge Deluxe System
Robert Sorby PED01A ProEdge Deluxe System offers exact sharpening of your tools every time. One of the most common problems in woodturning is maintaining the angles on various woodturning tools. The ProEdge sharpener is the solution. The ProEdge machine has an angle setter which locks into position at the required angle. You can even lock the angle at a custom setting if you prefer.
Unlike a grinding wheel, the sharpening belt runs over a flat bed so there’s no other adjustment required. A grinding wheel also constantly wears so the distance bar has to be set up to compensate.
Belts are easily changed in seconds. Once you have your grinding angles set correctly for your turning tools you are only likely to have to do this to replace worn belts. The belts cut away the steel of the tool rather than just rubbing it away. This action lowers the chance of overheating the tool steel.
The ProEdge is without doubt a very simple system to use and with it’s host of jigs will aid the sharpening of almost anything in addition to your woodturning tools. There are a wide range of abrasive belts to sharpen and reshape the cutting angle or repair damaged tools. Course grit belts are designed to re-profile your tools while the finer grits can give an almost polished sharp cutting edge.
Built from solid steel, this machine is very robust and will last for years. It’s a compact machine so only requires a small space on the workbench, but Robert Sorby have also produced a lightweight floor standing cabinet that can house the ProEdge and provide plenty of storage. The pivot action of the machine is designed for the comfort of the operator.
This machine is a brilliant alternative to the traditional grinder. Its unique ability is to set the incline of the belt to achieve the perfect angle to sharpen the tools with precision and accuracy.
