Lets mention some important key points to keep in mind with a honing plate.
* The AV-36 clipper blade sharpening machine has a cast iron honing plate that is stress relieved and surface ground. Most other machines have an aluminum plate that after time or misuse in the sharpening procedures can cause the top plate to dish out or warp, transferring that into your sharpened clipper blade. The AV-36 top plate being cast iron will not dish out or warp ensuring the blades are sharpened properly every time.
* The AV-36 honing plate is surface ground while an aluminum plate is flat. The surface grooves is what hold the honing compound into the top plate and allows the honing compound to pass underneath the clipper blade in the sharpening process. With an aluminum plate you have to break the honing plate in and create the surface grooves. This can take multiple sets of clipper blades to create the surface grooves in an aluminum plate. The AV-36 honing plate comes ready to go with the surface grooves already created for you.
