The advanced water trough has been further improved with a screw lift for easier fitting and a magnetic scraper for efficient cleansing. The removable scraper incorporates a strong magnet that attracts the steel grindings of sharpened tools. This keeps your stone clean and cutting more freely. These small steel particles would otherwise be pressed into the stone surface where they can adversely affect the sharpening process. You'll find that most of the steel grindings adhering to the magnet when you clean the water trough. When you remove the scraper, the magnet will release the steel particles and you can easily clean the trough.
