Ratchet for Vortex Machines

Our new game-changing mechanism for super-easy belt changing, as well as variable belt tensioning functionality on the Vortex machines. These mechanisms are optional on new machines, but can also be easily retrofitted to replace the gas strut on previous machines.

Flat & Hollow Grinding Table

A unique high quality and accurate attachment that allows for both flat- and hollow grinding. This grinding table attachment has hand-knobs for both precision vertical (up-down) and angle (table tilt) adjustments. Solid with fine adjustment capability and can be locked to ensure repeatable results on grinds. Compatible with all our contact wheels for hollow grinding. Flat grinding requires our platen that can be horizontally-mounted, allowing the knife-maker to comfortably grind while viewing grind-lines.

  • Vortex
Platen

For accurately grinding flat surfaces, our large platen accessory is second to none. The platen grinding surface can be widely adjusted for different grinding positions and comes with 58mm diameter wheels. Used in conjunction with the Grinding Rest, accurate angles can be achieved.
