What is the sharpening process on the Lap-Sharp?
Starting with an abrasive grit size appropriate for the condition of the tool being sharpened, hold the tool in position; depress the footswitch to start the rotation of the abrasive disc. Once a flat surface is achieved, only a short period of abrasion of a subsequent grit size is needed before progressing to the next finer abrasive. Remove the disc securing knob, replace the disc with the next finer abrasive, and reinstall the securing knob. With the tool held in place, depress the footswitch to begin the next step in the sharpening process. Continue this process until the desired level of sharpness is achieved. When sharpening a bevel edge, repeat the above process, ending with a fine abrasive that may also be used to remove any wire edge that remains.
