Scary Sharpening Glass Plate - 85 x 290mm

PSGLAPLATESING
by Scary Sharpening
£13.50

We have this float glass plate produced to our own specification in Birmingham, the home of glass making.

The lapping plate is made from 10mm thick float glass plate which has been tested on our granite inspection plate and is guaranteed to be flat. It has been made to our specification and can be used for backing off new plane blades or chisels and for excellent results when honing your tools. It's is also an excellent base for flattening water stones. The glass plate is 3.9 Lbs of sheer flatness.

Care should be taken within the workshop as the float glass can break and leave sharp edges.

Dimensions
approx. 85 x 290 x 10mm

    Nice piece of flat glass

    As with most flat scary glass sharpening systems this is on par with all the others. Price wise not quite the cheapest but not far off.
    I thought the suggested anti slip mat was as good as described but it wasn't and was very disappointed but purchase a lot better may at a large DIY superstore locally.
    The toughened safety glass is just over 10mn making it one of the thickest toughened float glass plates around. It's bevel edged making it safe to use. I tend to adhere various grades of sandpaper to sharpen my blades. Can get mirror finished, razor sharp blades to finish off on my 2 stage stropping, using compound on suede side them clean stropping on the leather side. Finishing off with a protector for the blade.
    They them only need stropping while using to keep the razor's edge. Making it safer to carve.
    All in all I'd recommend this glad plate but don't bother with the anti slip mat as it's cheap and nasty thin and flimsy.

    Glass Flat Plate

    nice flat glass plate, would have liked bigger to help maintain my plane bottoms but is as described so no complaints. Worked great for scary sharp but also as a flattening plate for water stones

    Top quality product

    Thick glass, thicker than the Veritas float glass I own.
    Came on time, well packaged.
    Bevelled edges. I keep a piece of 0.05 micron on this to use as a strop.
