DIAMOND MACHINING TECHNOLOGY says it has developed the first diamond sharpener to combine convex and concave abrasive surfaces.
The Diamond Wave affords longer sharpening strokes over traditional slip stones, providing 0.0625" to 1" radii tapering to accommodate all curved gouges. The Diamond Wave is available in two sizes: 600 grit/25 micron or 1,200 grit/9 micron. One tool can properly maintain a wide range of curved surface tools like in-cannel and out-cannel gouges, carving tools and woodturning tools. www.dmtsharp.com
