The KnifeKits.com Horizontal Finishing Attachment II is the second generation of our most popular HFA finishing system design. Like the first generation model, this unit is designed to fit the Kalamazoo™ (1SM) 1 x 42 inch grinder/sander. This unique sander upgrade will transform the standard vertical platen sander into a knife and gun makers dream finishing tool by allowing it to be used also as a horizontal sander with both radiusing and flat platen capability.
This design was created to allow the user to grind the outside of the frame or body and to achieve those hard-to-produce "scratch lines" that are horizontal with the body of the object. It also allows for excellent radius workflow control.
Our unique attachment works best with flat handle materials before they are rounded/shaped to the frame of the knife/gun (this generally keeps the flat handle material perpendicular to the frame) and for other precision horizontal grinding applications, for which there are many. The horizontal scratch pattern is the ultimate finish configuration for quality knives and guns.
This is a "must have" tool for those who work for a quality finish. It is made like a tank and will last for years!
