LA-145 Leather Honing Wheel
Polish and deburr the edge
The LA-145 Leather Honing Wheel is always used with PA-70 Honing Compound. The leather honing wheel gently removes the burrs built up during sharpening and polishes your bevel for the sharpest and most edge retaining results. It's also used for routine maintenance to quickly regain sharpness when you don't need to establish a new bevel. The LA-145 Leather Honing Wheel fits the Tormek T-4.
Why LA-145 Leather Honing Wheel?
- Polishes the bevel and deburrs the edge.
- Maintains your tools between sharpenings.
- Quality cowhide that lasts year after year.
- Fits the Tormek T-4, Tormek T-3 and older models with a honing wheel 145 mm (5 3/4") in diameter and 26 mm (1") wide.
Restores the edge between sharpenings
The LA-145 Leather Honing Wheel is used with PA-70 Honing Compound. Honing your tool on the leather honing wheel after sharpening gives you maximum sharpness for your edge tool. Honing highly improves edge retention and provides excellent maintenance. You can quickly and easily realign the edge against the leather honing wheel between sharpenings. When the honing wheel is new, impregnate it with light machine oil before applying the honing compound so as to extend its service life and get the best performance.
Quality vegetable tanned leather
The leather on the LA-145 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.
