This very flat and stable commercial Float Glass made to our specifications, is a full 14" long, a very wide 4 - 1/2" and 1/2" thick (over 60 sq. in). It makes a superb sharpening surface – better we feel than oil or waterstones or diamond surfaces.

Our 4 - 1/2" wide German-made waterproof PSA-backed abrasive paper (100, 220, 400 and 600 grit) fits the plate perfectly (PSA abrasive is shown installed). Not only can you sharpen the bevels on woodworking tools, you can also rapidly flatten the backs of chisels and plane blades – even flatten the soles of planes.

Each Float Glass Complete Kit will come with a 40" roll of each of the four grits (the Master Pack) – enough for two lengths, plus some extra. Use extra Float Glass plates to set up permanent stations.

Each Float Glass Complete Kit also comes with a Side Clamp Honing Guide for chisels and plane blades and a German “Messermeister” Knife Guide (total $18.45 value) at no additional cost. The large surface area of the Float Glass gives you the ability to sharpen knives with a lot of control. The German guide works very well on all kitchen or sheath knives at least 6" long.

Made To Last
Reviewed By:   (Cartagena, Colombia) 
I have diamond plates but wanted a couple of these to go to a courser or finer grit than my plates. I am very impressed with them. Very heavy, stays put on the table while in use. Easier to use than the diamond plates due to size. Just a tiny dab of contact cement at each corner, very tiny, and the paper stays put.

Not Well Thought Thru
Reviewed By:   (Spokane, WA) 
After having used the sanding glass and paper I was initially pleased with results, however having let the same paper set on the glass for a couple of weeks it is now welded to the glass. In the course of discovering this I also was using the honing guide and discovered that it was not properly holding the chisel I was attempting to sharpen despite many efforts to position it squarely. The end result was a chisel that I will have to spend some time with to correct it. Have never had problems with Garrett Wade products before, hope this was slip-up.

Scary Sharp
Reviewed By:   (Cody, Wyoming) 
The items contained in this kit will allow you to get your chisels ,plane irons,knives ,very sharp with a stead pace and taking your time so your sure each pass the edge stays at the same angle .then just keep using finer and finer sandpaper. You can go as fine as you want the 600 grit is good but pick up some wet or dry automotive 3m paper assorted pack gets you 1000,1500 ,2000,2500 sheets if you polish the edge up to at least 2000 the edge you get is scary sharp

Fantastic System
Reviewed By:   (Dayton, OH) 
I've already brought a set of chisels and a plane back to life. Now I just have to catch up with the rest of my chisels. It's a fantastic system.
