Jig for Grinding Flat bevels on Axes, For Sorby ProEdge.

3 in stock



A jig for producing the flat grind used on carving axes. For use on the Sorby ProEdge Belt Linisher.

This is a Jig that I have used on my courses for the last 5 years, it has enabled all my students, many of whom have never used a grinder to produce a flat and true bevel. Very pleased to finally put this in production, as so many of my students have asked to buy one. Using this jig incorrectly could be dangerous so please watch this video before purchasing and if you have any further questions please contact us.

The belt sequence that I recommend  when using this jig is:

60 grit ceramic– The first belt sets the bevels quickly and accurately.

400 grit Trizact– This will remove the scratches from the 60 grit belt effectively.

1200 grit Trizact– To remove the scratches from the first Trizact belt and will produce an effective working edge once the burr is stropped off

3000 grit Trizact– An optional stage, these belts are not as long lived as the other trizact belts and are more likely to overheat the steel if used when slightly blunt, but they will give the best edge.

There are other grits available to purchase if required.

    Thank you Nic.
    Achieving a flat curved bevel on both sides of a carving axe for a non-professional is nearly impossible.
    This Jig is so so simple, it makes one feel an expert in minutes, with a very sharp Carving Axe too, that bites like never before.
    & gives the Sorby Pro-Edge yet another bonus!

    An outstanding sharpening jig. I achieved perfect result straight away. It can handle a long cutting edge with a significant curve seamlessly. I highly recomend it!

  3. Hey Nic.

      Hi, not in its current form. I have been playing with a version that would work on a tormek style machine, but it’s not something that will be available soon.
