Moen Works Rotary Cooled Carbide Platen Solves The Heat and Belt Bump Problem:

Anyone flat grinding on a belt grinder knows the typical downfalls of a standard flat platen: heat and belt bump. As knifemakers we deal with friction all day, and as you know, friction equals heat. Heat can burn steel and ruin your temper. Currently you're limited to a maximum of 220 grit belt finishing on your knives using a traditional flat platen. As the grits get finer, the seam of the belt becomes more pronounced and you get "belt bump". Aside from being annoying, it prevents you from getting a clean and consistent grind, and your finish will suffer for it. The Moen Works Rotary Cooled Carbide Platen solves both these problems.

If producing award winning knives and becoming efficient enough to be a financially stable knifemaker is your goal, then grab yourself a Carbide Platen - Click here for more information.

    I can't say enough good things about the Moen Platen. It has allowed me to kick my knife making skills up more than a notch. My blades are dead on accurate and I get consistent results from side to side and blade to blade. The quality of my blade grind is so much better and my productivity has increased fourfold. Not only that but its a real pleasure to use. People should run, not walk, to get one of these.

    The new platen is a dream come true, easy to use and easy to adjust to your needs. I've only done a few
    grinds in my knife making, but with the new platen and the ease of operating it I will be doing more and more flat grinding.
    Thanks for coming up with this great piece of equipment.

    Hi Randy,
    Today I tried, for the first time, the new platen attachment I brought from you; it workd great.
    The finish on the blade I was able to obtain is unbelievable; it is like grinding on a contact wheel.
    I plan on using the platen attachment not only for flat grinding on blades but also for some intricate geometry on the handle.
    The adjustable table and block make it easy to place the grinding lines exactly where I want and most important, any changes are easy to make without the stress and worry of ruining the work previously done.
    Just like all the other Hardcore Products that I have in my shop, your new Moen Works Platen is a great addition for any knifemaker who wants to get the best result on a flat grinding.

    All the best.
