No matter what brand of honing machine you use, we’ll get you the tooling and abrasives you need, when you need them, through a complete, custom consumables consignment program.  Customers can provide us with a forecast of the materials they’ll need and we’ll manage their inventory, enabling honing companies to pay for honing stones only as they use them.
