Wood-Mizer sharpeners feature a 0,18 kW single phase AC motor with a nominal speed of 2800 rpm. This type of motor is renowned for long and trouble free life because it does not have brushes or commutators. One of the most important features during the design process was the easy insertion and removal of the blade. When installing the blade, the head lifts up out of the way and the blade can be easily inserted into the clamp.
The electric control box is mounted in such a position as to allow easy access to the controls. Incorporated into the hinged lid is a venting pipe that can be connected to an exhaust system to remove any oil mist generated during the sharpening process. Wood-Mizer supplies specially designed borazon grinding wheels in four profiles which exactly match our factory set profiles.
