Veritas Mortise Chisel Adapter - MK.II Honing Guide  (Ref: 103386)

Veritas Mortise Chisel Adapter - MK.II Honing Guide

Key Features

Expands the capacity of the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide
For sharpening thick bladed mortice chisels
Sharpen mortice chisels with bevel angles of 30° to 35°
Accommodates chisels up to 17.5mm(11/16") thick

It is compatible with both the standard and narrow-blade clamping heads. The Veritas Mortice Chisel Adaptor fits between the roller base and the blade clamping head of the honing guide. By increasing the height of blade carrier above the roller base, it allows you to sharpen the thicker blades of mortice chisels. With the adaptor in place you can sharpen chisels up to 17.5mm(11/16") thick and achieve a bevel angle in the 30° to 35° range required for mortice chisels. Made in Canada.

Veritas Set of 5 Lapping Grits (56g each)  (Ref: 476020)

Veritas Set of 5 Lapping Grits (56g each)

A range of grits. We recommend 280 grit for twisted, wavy or linished objects, 400 grit for ground surfaces with a slightly rough texture, and 600 grit for surfaces requiring little material removal. While any grit size will ultimately achieve the same end result (since particles become progressively finer during the lapping process), the coarser the abrasive, the longer it takes to achieve a smooth surface.

Veritas Small Blade Holder  (Ref: 475978)

Veritas Small Blade Holder

Blade holder may be mounted in a honing guide, or used free hand for sharpening
Holds short blades such as spokeshave blades when sharpening
Blade is secured in holder by two rare-earth magnets
Adjustable stop provides adjustment for blade projection
Effectively transforms your short blade into something larger (38 x 100mm long)


Because of the difficulty holding short blades such as those found in most spokeshaves, instrument makers' planes, etc., sharpening them has been difficult. The Veritas small-blade holder solves this effectively and safely by securing the blade using two powerful rare-earth magnets embedded into anodized aluminum and an adjustable stop block. In effect, it transforms your short blade into something larger (38mm wide x 100mm long) that can be effectively held for sharpening, either by hand or by mounting in a honing guide.

Veritas Jointer Blade Sharpener  (Ref: 474855)

Veritas Jointer Blade Sharpener

Designed to restore blades dulled from normal use
Clamps blades up to 200mm(8") wide (including hand-plane blades)
Two position stops ensure successive blades are honed identically
Cast aluminium with brass and steel fittings
Includes a half sheet of 15 micron (approx.1000 grit) 3M micro-abrasive film


A commercial sharpening service or a sophisticated home grinder is necessary for badly nicked blades. The Veritas jointer blade sharpener is designed to restore blades dulled from normal use, even if they contain minor nicks. It clamps blades up to 200mm (8") long (including hand-plane blades) for sharpening on Silicon Carbide (Wet & Dry) abrasives. Just stick the abrasive to a flat surface (plate glass works well), adjust the elevating screw until the bevel is flat on the abrasive, and use it as you would any other honing guide. After basic sharpening, switch to a fine abrasive, and hone a fine micro-bevel. Two position stops ensure that successive blades are honed identically. It is both easy and effective, letting you quickly restore blades that you would probably let become far duller before sending out for service.Made of cast aluminum with brass and steel fittings. It is supplied with a half sheet of 15 micron (aprox.1000 grit) 3M micro-abrasive film.

Veritas Bevel Gauge  (Ref: 477398)

Veritas Bevel Gauge

Half the battle when sharpening is getting the bevel angle correct. A good bevel gauge is truly handy for quickly checking the grind angle of chisels, plane blades, turning tools, etc. A quick check confirms the angle last used for grinding or honing so that the edge geometry can be maintained. The Veritas bevel gauge has seven individual slots that will measure the most commonly used angles from 15° to 45° in 5° increments. Your eye is a fine instrument; it can easily interpolate other angles in the range, angles like 24° or 26°. The slots on the gauge are about 19mm deep for good registration. An engineer's corner at the base of each slot and the fact it is made from solid brass ensures it will not damage a honed edge. The pocket-sized disc is 62mm in diameter with a center hole for hanging it on a nail. Made in USA.

Veritas MkII Honing System  (Ref: 200810)

Veritas MkII Honing System

Increased range, capacity and accuracy
Integral blade registration squares the blade and sets the bevel angle in one easy step
Three bevel-angle range configurations
Designed to accept flat and tapered blades, as well as blades with irregular geometry
Three-position eccentric roller allows a micro-bevel to be honed quickly and accurately
50mm wide roller is stable for even the narrowest of blades
Accommodates chisels as narrow as 6mm, and blades as wide as 72mm and up to 13mm thick
Works with short blades such as spokeshave blades
Manufactured from die-cast zinc alloy, with precision-machined brass and steel parts


The main feature of the Veritas Mk.II is its blade registration system squaring and setting the blade in one easy step. The Mk.II Guide has three bevel angle range configurations: a high angle (25° to 54° in seven increments), standard (15° to 40° in six increments), and a third for back bevels. The registration jig slides onto the guide body, centering and squaring the blade using an integral fence. The clamping mechanism registers on the face of the blade and is designed to accept flat and tapered blades, as well as blades with irregular geometry. The Mk.II features a three-position eccentric roller allowing a micro-bevel to be honed quickly and accurately after only a simple turn of a knob. The 50mm wide roller is stable for even the narrowest of blades. The guide can easily accommodate chisels or blades from 6 to 72mm wide and up to 13mm thick including spokeshave blades.

Veritas Camber Roller Assembly  (Ref: 202489)

Veritas Camber Roller Assembly

Specifically designed for the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide
Solid brass barrel-shaped roller
Allows slight curvature with an accurate and consistent bevel angle
Simply replaces the standard roller assembly


This is an attachment specifically designed for use with the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide. When planing on large, flat surfaces, it is often desirable to hone a slight curve, or camber, into the edge of the blade. The Veritas Camber Roller Assembly has a barrel-shaped roller that allows limited rocking, whilst still maintaining an accurate and consistent bevel angle. Simply replace the standard roller assembly with the camber assembly and sharpen. The blade is still set using the registration jig, and the camber roller includes the standard eccentric system allowing micro-bevels to be honed.

Veritas Waterstone Pond

Suitable for waterstones up to 300mm(12") in length
Twin clamping arms and adjustable quick acting clamps
Large non-slip base for three or more stones
Tempered glass plate cover


A compact and comprehensive system for both the use and storage of waterstones up to 12" in length.

Manufactured from tough, rigid ABS with all metal parts in non-corrosive stainless steel and anodised aluminium. The base features non-slip pads to hold it firm when in use. The cover consists of a tempered glass plate backed with laminate which can be used in conjunction with 90 grit silicon carbide (supplied) to lap the stones to a flatness of plus or minus 0.001" per inch of stone length. When not in use, the coarse stones can be stored directly in the water and the finer, wooden based ones left attached to the bar and just flipped over to be stored upside down. The whole thing can then be covered and stored ready for the next time the stones are required.
