Note that you can only use this wheel *facing up*---it's not meant to face down, so you can't use the sharpening port. If you have the wide tool accessory that fits on the top, then you will be able to hold your tools that way. Otherwise, if you don't have it (like me), you will have to free-hand it, using the tool rest. This is no problem for back of blades, but for the blade bevel, you have to carefully hold the blade by hand at the correct angle. So far it's worked ok for me, but it would be nice if you could use it with the sharpening port.
With all this described, i know it is from an inconsistent thickness of the leather and i have no way to shave it to an even thickness accurately. I will try some PSA sandpaper on a flat wood paddle and see if that will scrub it flat, if not it is not worth the bother to buy another one.
I have tried the compound on a worn out 1200 grit pad on the plate and it is giving me the good results with a smooth contact and no thumping or wiggles and it does polish out the backs of the chisels; just slower to get results.
I wish they sold just the leather pad so we can replace it and not buy another glass plate. Hint !!
DIY Update, i used a wood slat that is 2.250 wide x 3/8 thk. x 12" long to back up a single 1/4 sheet of 80g sand paper folded over the slat. The closed fold pointed into the rotation so i could control the sand paper. I laid it flat (2.25) on the spinning leather wheel and sanded off the high spots and cleaned off the paper several times with the rubber block that is supplied in the hone wheel kit.Read more ›
Just lucky it didn't rip the plane iron from my hands and fling it across the workshop, nor did it damage the glass plate under the leather.
I think I'll buy the micromesh disks and retire the leather hone.

ordered by mistake, as I already had one so I kept it as a backup
because it would cost me more to ship it back. Read more
Great honing plate for WS system - I use my own buffing compound instead of what was packaged with it so I can't comment on that portion.Published 5 months ago by PUM
