Edge Pro Stone Leveling Kit with 60 Grit Silicon Carbide
(Part # SLK)
This is a must have if you are using your Edge Pro Apex or Professional kit.
With time your stones will dish in the middle as they wear and they will also build up a glaze. Sprinkle a bit of the silicon carbide powder on the glass, add water and rub your stones in circles on the glass flipping end for end occasionally. This will keep you stones flat and performing well. The rubber edging keeps the silicon carbide contained and keeps the glass from moving around as you work. Start with your coarse stones and work up to the finest. The Silicon Carbide abrasive should only be used on the standard Edge Pro sharpening stones - do not use the Silicon Carbide with your diamond matrix stones.
The Silicon will last for several uses per application.
Alternately you can use the second side of the glass as the mounting platform for your Edge Pro Sharpener - the smooth surface attaches your sharpener securely and the rubber molding keeps it from moving on your table, counter or bench. All you have to do is wait for the silicon carbide to dry and then pour it back into the bag, clean off the glass, flip it over and mount your sharpener on the smooth side of the glass.
Protect the surface you are working on with newspaper or something similar as the silicon carbide will scratch nearly any household surface it gets onto.
This kit includes: 1 12 inch Round 1/4" plate glass with rubber molding installed and a 1/2 lb. bag of 60 grit silicon carbide. In addition we throw in a large zip lock storage bag to store your kit if you choose to leave the grit on the glass between uses.
Add on a bag of 240 grit Aluminum Oxide to your Silicon Carbide Stone Leveling kit so you can also flatten all your Edge Pro Diamond Matrix stones - select that above.
Alternately, we also have a stone leveling kit with the 240 grit aluminum oxide to use with your diamond matrix stones.
