Sharpening your plane blade is the most important skill for a handtool woodworker.  I have taught thousands of students my freehand (no jig needed) sharpening method which enables you to sharpen your blade in 30 seconds and get right back to work.  Once you develop the muscle memory to feel the correct angle to hold the blade you will be able to hand sharpen like a professional.  My angle trainer will help you quickly develop that muscle memory.

  • The biggest advantage of my trainer is that you hold the blade the same way you would if you were free hand sharpening.  The angle trainer slips underneath the blade to provide that bit of confidence needed in the learning phase.

  • Uses powerful rare earth magnets to securely hold the blade to the trainer at the proper angle.

  • Designed to work with blades that have a 25 degree primary bevel (which is almost all hand plane blades)

  • Has a 29 degree face for honing the secondary bevel.

  • Has a 31 degree face for honing the tertiary bevel.

  • Made of a hard wearing composite material called Swanstone that easily slides on your diamond or water stone.

  • Once you develop your muscle memory you no longer need the angle trainer.

Size: 3/4" wide x 3" long x 1" high.

Angle trainer.

Was very helpful. Helped me locate hand position when sharpening.

It's small for someone with large hands and a bit overpriced, imho. It does a good job putting a fine edge on chisels and hand plane irons

Getting the hang of it

It is taking me a bit to get used to it. I find whatever blade im trying to sharpen slips off of the angle trainer magnets. I've watched the video a few times to make sure im doing things correctly, still slips. Not as easy as i thought it would be. My confidence to do it without isn't there yet though, so ill keep at this until I get it right.

Obtaining proper angle......

New to hand planes and sharpening the blades. This product is essential in obtaining the knowledge/skill in proper angle.

I have not tried the angle trainer yet, but will be soon. Looking forward to see how helpful it will work out and how long I need to depend on using the angle trainer. Hopefully I will develop and master my sharpening skills with out the angle trainer. Although, I do believe Robs products are very reliable, and I will not have any problems mastering my sharpening skills free handed. Thank you Rob.
