Scary Sharpening System

The concept of Scary Sharpening has been around for years, but with the evolution of new abrasives Scary Sharpening has become a very effective and affordable way to sharpen a variety of your woodworking tools. This system of sharpening uses 3M self adhesive microfinishing sheets on a flat substrate such as our own brand Polycarbonate plate.

The abrasive sheets range from the coarser 80 micron (80µ) for initial grinding and gets progressively finer through 40µ, 20µ, 15µ, 9µ to 3µ for the ultimate sharp edge, and polishing backs on chisels, plane blades and knives. When sharpening lubricate the abrasive sheets with an oil such as Shield Technology HoneRite No.1 for fast cutting. Using an oil will prevent swarf from clogging the papers. Swarf can also be removed easily with a paper covered magnet.  

A honing guide, such as the Veritas Honing Guide, offers the best results with this system leaving an excellent edge on chisels and plane blades.
