Why this machine deserves to be in your workshop...

Variable Speed - Stay In Control

With just a simple twist of a knob you can match the speeds needed for various types of abrasives and material, preventing overheating on small delicate items.

Forward & Reverse Running

Running the belt in reverse (away from the tool) prolongs belt life, gives you greater control and generates less heat resulting in a better edge for your tools. The reverse function is perfect for woodcarving tools.

Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Motor Control

Smart electronics constantly monitor amps and speed to ensure there is enough consistent power under varying loads. The power is provided by a premium variable speed 560W PMDC Brush Motor providing plenty of power but also offers greater control when sharpening delicate carving tools or producing a secondary bevel.

Digital Readout in Metres Per Minute (MPM)

Allows you to closely monitor the speed, ensuring you can always maintain the correct one for the metal you’re cutting. Speeds range from 202-600 MPM.

Adjustable Tracking

Tracking can be adjusted around four times quicker than a normal tracking system. Belt size 50mm x 785mm

Machined Flat Platform

Provides a flat surface for your belt application, ensuring an even grind when sharpening your tools.

Machine Extraction

Dust extraction ports to the top and bottom allow effective extraction, whether the machine is running in forward or reverse, providing you with a safe and clean working environment.

Toolless Quick Belt Change

Change belts in just 20 seconds with the quick-release door lock. An auto-tension lock and easy-to-adjust belt tracking not only means changing a belt couldn't be easier but it also allows you to work much more efficiently.

Read our buying guide

Woodwork without a keen edge simply ends up in tears. The Axminster Professional AP50UE Ultimate Edge offers a controlled, repeatable and effective method for sharpening, linishing or polishing on all your edge tools. No one takes up sharpening as a hobby, but it is a necessity in order to get the best out of an edge tool. This variable speed sharpening system allows you to run the machine in both forward and reverse. By running the belt in reverse (away from the tool), we believe it gives you greater control, generating less heat and, ultimately, giving you a better edge.

The large range of optional accessories allows you to tailor the system to suit your own needs. Once set, you cannot fail to get a fast repeatable quality edge every time. With the Support Bar with Dual Axis Adjustment (included with the machine) fitted to the machine, you can use many of the Tormek Jigs to produce a honed edge on most types of tools, quickly and easily. An easy-to-use angle gauge is also included, essential for fast repeatable setting.

If woodturning is your craft, the Ultimate Edge will put an edge on any of your tools in a jiffy. Carvers are well catered for. With many carving tools being quite delicate, you do not want to be too aggressive with them. The variable speed feature comes into its own when sharpening carving tools. Once the unique 'Twist n Fix' arbor is fitted to the Ultimate Edge, a wide range of mops and felt wheels are available to hone and polish your carving tools to achieve an ultimate edge and a mirror finish.

The AP50UE Ultimate Edge is fantastic at bringing old tools back to life. If you have some of your granddad’s old tools in a box at the back of the shed, the Ultimate Edge can combine fast rust removal with effortless polishing and incredible sharpening and honing capabilities. It is worth remembering, many of these old tools were made from the best steels available.

The possibilities of the Ultimate Edge are endless. The machine has a 560W DC brush motor, which has high torque and is quiet running. The variable speed allows you to match the speed to the type of abrasive and the tool. Dust extraction ports top and bottom allow effective extraction whether running forward or reverse. The belts can be easily changed with a quick release door lock, an auto-tension lock, and easy-to-adjust belt tracking. The belt platen is fully adjustable to the belt; an optional graphite slip plate is provided. There is a simple table provided as standard. The base is 5mm plate steel and is provided with adjustable feet for bench mounting. Supplied with a 240 grit aluminum oxide belt.
