HE Honing Guide & Blade Angle Setting Jig
The HE Honing Guide is based on the no longer produced Eclipse guide. Many have ‘copied’ this guide but quality and performance has suffered in the process.
We have always been a great supporter of the simplicity and efficiency of the Eclipse jig, our aim is to make blade sharpening very simple and very successful for the woodworker.
The HE Honing Guide has CNC machined jaws, matched in pairs. The reference points ensure the blade or chisel you are sharpening is flat on the stone and square to the rolling bearing. The bearing is kept to 12mm to allow weight shifting when honing and hence blade rounding when required.
We use a marine grade stainless steel bearing to limit the damage the water / grit environment it is exposed to can cause.
The upper jaws that accept plane blades are ‘dovetailed’ to ensure the blade is pushed down flat and square. The lower chisel jaws are the same in reverse, that is, on clamping, the small plane blade or chisel is pushed up flat against the jig to keep it straight and square.
The knurled knob is wide giving excellent finger purchase, combined with the jaws machining, it is often the case that finger tight is enough to secure the blade without the use of screwdriver to tighten it.
Clearances allow sharpening up to 50°.
Henry Eckert Blade Angle Setting Jig
The length the blade or chisel extends from the Henry Eckert Honing guide determines the angle the blade meets the stone.
Our aim is to simplify sharpening requires the opportunity to select the angle immediately. Our Blade Setting Jig has 5 settings for plane blades, 25°, 30°, 35°, 40° & 50° and 3 settings for chisels and smaller blades, 25°, 30° & 35°.The Blade Angle Setting Jig ensures you always sharpen the same bevel angle as the last time. We laser cut the jig from marine grade plywood and each angle setting is clearly marked.
