Scary Sharpening Abrasive Sheets (PSA) - this industrial product has a superior performance with respect to its wear rate of the grit and backing medium, compared to the original lapping films used for fibre-optic polishing.

We use these abrasive sheets in our furniture workshop and has been very well received by our students - designed for use in the metalwork micro-finishing industry and a far more robust product overall.

The higher the micron or U number, the coarser the grade. Each sheet is 280mm x 230mm and makes approximately 3 strips for scary sharpening tasks.

A trial pack of Industrial Scary Sharpening abrasives, one complete set of fast cutting grades Aluminium Oxide (PSA) self adhesive back sheets - 80u, 40u, 20u, 15u, 9u and 3u to cover all your sharpening requirements.

The industrial sharpening abrasive provides a quick cutting long lasting very flat sharpening method, it is easy to lay with its (PSA) pressure sensitive adhesive backing. This has been on trial in our furniture workshop for the past few years and has become our sharpening method of choice. The precise micron-graded Aluminium Oxide with a durable film backing has a superior performance with respect to its wear rate of the grit and backing medium to others we have used. 

It was designed for use in the demanding field of metalwork micro-finishing for grinding of cam shafts and offers excellent results in hand sharpening. The abrasive cutting is quicker, lasts longer and is less prone to tearing during use to original lapping films. This abrasive is available in a selection of grades from 80 micron (180 grit) to 3 micron (8000 grit).

The higher the micron or U number, the coarser the grade. Each sheet is 280mm x 230mm and makes 3 strips for Scary Sharpening tasks.

Here's a guide to help you to select the micron size, but you will find how it works best for you with experience.

  • 80u - (180 Grit) Black - For removing original grinding marks on new blades or grinding the primary bevel; cleaning or initial lapping of plane soles to remove damage or rust

  • 40u - (360 Grit) Blue - Used for flattening new chisels and plane blades (if required) initial primary bevel forming and lapping plane soles

  • 20u - (1000 Grit) Red - Great for general secondary bevel and backing off chisels and plane irons

  • 15u - (1200 Grit) Orange - Refining secondary bevels on chisels and plane irons and backing off

  • 9u - (2500 Grit) Light Blue - Produces micro bevel and backing off chisels, plane irons and knifes; should cut hair but the edge can be improved if required

  • 3u - (8000 Grit) Pink lapping film - Produces polished micro bevel and polished chisel backs, plane irons and knifes; this will give the finest cutting edges available.

    Scary!

    Last year we attended Peter's getting started course, and learned how to "scary sharpen" our chisels - I have an Irwin box of 6 - I thought they were OK when I bought them, but after learning how to true the back side, and put the correct angle on the sloping edge, what a difference... I could shave a half millimetre off the end grain of a piece of scandy redwood. I have a thick piece of float glass, I've checked and its as flat as a very flat thing, and once the abrasive paper is applied, I'll make a storage box for it and other sanding paper. Prompt delivery, a little over-packed - lots of plastic wrapping to deal with.

    First time I have used this company and wasn't disappointed. Great service. I generaly have used wet and dry with thin oil to sharpen my woodworking tools for many years.
    I watched a video on scary sharpening and thought I would see what this material is like to use,so purchased the trial pack. These sheets look a really good quality, and I plan to use them soon. I will be using a backing of granite to keep everything flat.
