Check out these pictures and tell us what we are seeing, in fact tell us what we are seeing and how it is used. Be the first one and get 114 points and be a winner.

If instead of the details it is OK to point to a URL with the details..... now don't be afraid, just do it..1

The sand paper is on float glass...... ie very flat glass.

OK that is a big hint, so someone should get this easy now.

wet / dry sandpaper used with the flat glass surface to sharpen tools..
DYS "scarry sharp" system. Some advantages over sharpening stones..
never have to flatten the stones......... also cheaper, much cheaper!

You are a winner! You get the 114 points!

Now some gritty details. I start with a 220 grit then 320, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 1500, and finish with 2000. Good steel done to the 2000 looks like a mirror and they are sharp!!!!!!!

The funny thing is I took a class in fiber optics at work and learned to polish the glass fibers..... multimode at the time and the kit to do this used a method a lot like this. A few of us woodworkers decided to do this to our tools, well chisels anyway. I think that might have been about 1978 or so now if any of us had see this as a product and marketed it.... well I wouldn't be living in a small house in IL with a small shop I can't use durning the winter now would I?

I'm not sure you need the glass just any hard flat surface..... maybe that old planner or table saw, just stick the sandpaper down and... but I use water so maybe the tables would rust a bit so that might not be the best idea. OK you get the idea anyway right?
