Tradesman Edge -Evolution of Blade Holding

Jack Plane Blade seems quite useful for all blades including razor blades

We like this one /|\  Fewer parts that a multilink arm  Better accuracy repeatability faster set up

Fits on all Tradesman grinders utilize that handy Tormek rail.

Worried about your angles? Do you use a felt wheel to cover angle mismatch

We think you should be able to repeat and angle within a few minutes, Grind at a speed appropriate for finishing, no risk of damage, and only need a strop type effort to debur a good piece of steel.

On our Twin Belt machine rough on the left 200 grit, exact angle  match on the right with a  600 grit, Debur minimal

With this enhanced freehand approach, the stroke is captive but you won’t get cornered by your set up when doing a long blade or a large curved tip. our supermagnets let you rotate the knife to follow a tip radius

With the Tradesman edge running a 600 grit edge grind at 150 surface feet on machined platens allows for perfectly straight hand fed angles

With the DC whisper drive, in our shop you can hear the clock ticking in the background while running twin belts, this also means you can hear when the blade contacts the belt.

Just like our tool grinders.

Its a new day

Thrust Flange for Toycen Tradesman 6 and 8

We do like it when our machines are smooth and quiet, side to side run out is always a challenge

Eliminating the previous snapring and washer assembly (which is never flat)
This new flange protrudes thru the side plate using that normally unutilized shaft length to help govern wheel run out

Plus the larger diameter provides a large driven face to shoulder against.
