LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel
Hone the inside of arched edges
The LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel allows you to hone and polish the inside of tools with curved edges where access is otherwise difficult. Honing your woodturning gouges, carving gouges and V-gouges will be a walk in the park. The LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel fits all Tormek water-cooled sharpening systems and is mounted on your regular honing wheel.
Why LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel?
- Polishes the bevel and deburrs the edge on the inside of arched edges.
- Maintains your tools between sharpenings.
- Quality cowhide that lasts year after year.
- Fits the Tormek T-8, Tormek T-4 and older models.
Hones arched edges
You simply mount the LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel on the outside of your regular honing wheel. This allows you to hone the outside of your arched edge tool on your regular honing wheel, and then easily switch to honing the inside on the profiled wheel that fits your tool.
The LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel comes with two standard leather discs. The first one has a radius of 3 mm (1/8") for honing gouges and the like. The second one has a 60° tip for tools such as V-gouges.
The leather discs are interchangeable and you can easily replace a worn disc with the LA-122 Set of Standard Exchange Discs. Narrower profiles are also available with the LA-124 Set of Narrow Exchange Discs to access your most tightly arched edges.
You can also mount double LA-120 discs– one with a standard profile and one with a narrower profile – so that you can access four different profiles at the same time.
The discs are used with PA-70 Honing Compound. When the discs are new, impregnate them with a few drops of light machine oil before applying the honing compound.
Quality vegetable tanned leather
The leather on the LA-120 Profiled Leather Honing Wheel comes from the respected Tärnsjö Garveri tannery in Sweden. They've been tanning and manufacturing leather products for over 140 years and are now one of the few tanneries to tan their leather using only natural vegetable products. The leather on Tormek's leather honing wheels is both eco-friendly and of top quality.
