Achieve your best honing
PA-70 Honing Compound consists of a combination of microabrasives and polishing components, and has an average grit of 3 microns. For best results, always use honing compound when honing on a leather honing wheel. One application is enough for 5 to 10 tools. The leather becomes softer and more effective every time you use the honing compound. And your tools will be sharper than ever.
How to use PA-70 Honing Compound
Apply a thin string of PA-70 Honing Compound to the leather honing wheel before starting the machine. Turn the honing wheel by hand. Start the machine and distribute the honing compound by lightly pressing the tool against the wheel. Allow the paste to penetrate the leather.
When you have a new leather honing wheel, saturate it with the light machine oil included first to give it the right texture and make it capable of absorbing the honing compound. If you work in a dry climate, after a while you might need to impregnate the honing wheel again with a few drops of oil before using the honing compound. Don't let the honing compound dry out on the leather honing wheel, apply more oil if needed.
