You know the effort required to shoe
a horse and how much easier that is
when using sharp and well set up
tools. The Londonderry Forge Tool
Maintenance Kit keeps you in control
of top class kit.
THE KIT IS READY TO GO
The kit is based on a grinding machine with spiral tapers replacing the grinding wheels. Sateen compound is used to sharpen tools and knives, a ready coated wheel is included so you can use the kit straight away. Other cloth mops are used with grey and white honing compounds to get the perfect edge and revitalize rasps. Green compound used with a soft finishing mop gives items a mirror finish. It takes just seconds to swap from one process to the next, the mops simply spin on and off the spiral tapers.
Can be used to sharpen, hone and polish virtually all tools as well as so many of your shoeing and shoemaking tools.
You have found the perfect knife but you need to keep it sharp. Sometimes, it is hard to get good results using hand sharpening equipment as the blades are made from hardened and tempered steel. The system enables you to obtain a keen edge on a blade and maintain it by honing regularly. It even gets into the hook of the knife. Your favorite knife is not worn away by over-sharpening yet keeps a razor sharp edge. Loop knives are sharpened using the same compounds on coated felt cones.
It seems unbelievable that you can extend the life of your rasps by simply sharpening them each day from new. Using the system it takes seconds to revitalise each rasp and they last months rather than weeks. The operation is so quick that you can do this between jobs for instant results and it costs only pennies. No waiting and no need to dip in noxious chemicals.
The versatile system can be used to dress stamps, fullers and pritchels and polish them to a mirror finish, making them easier to use and there is not need to remove handles. Clenching tongs can be honed to grip nails better. Nippers can be polished and honed so that they continue to cut like a new pair. Remove small imperfections from hammer faces and clean up claws so that ring-offs do not stick.
