1. Stitching grains

Grains are numbered from  # 1 (the coarsest) to # 15 (the finest).

By coarse, we mean that in a given area there will be fewer but higher teeth than that for a finer grain.

So the first numbers are used for roughing, one pass of the tool removing much material. The high numbers are used for finishing work, to achieve a flawless surface.



Warning ! During the stitching operation of the teeth, we direct them to optimize the work of a right-handed user.

On request (and without no additional cost because it’s no more difficult to stitch for us), all these models are stitched specialy for left-handers.
