HoneRite Gold - 125ml
HoneRite Gold is a universal grinding, honing and lapping additive that makes water non-corrosive. It is supplied as a concentrate and is added to water, protecting both the machine and anything in the vicinity that may get splashed. It is highly recommended for use with all makes of powered water stone grinder eg. Tormek, Scheppach, Jet, Delta, Shinko etc. It can also be used with Japanese water stones and diamond honing plates. It is used regularly by Rob Cosman in his teaching demonstrations. A 125ml tin of HoneRite Gold makes a total of 3 litres of honing/grinding fluid.
I have found that Honerite Gold, made by Shield Technology is extremely useful for preventing rust. It comes as a concentrate that you mix with the water, and makes the water not cause rust. It sounds too good to be true but it does actually work. I'm surprised Tormek haven't released their own branded version as it is great for grinding carbon steels and for preventing rust of the Tormek itself. Tormek Forum 2011
Seems to have done the trick. Having also used diamond and water stones for some time I did get occasional flash rusting at times if I wasn't quick to wipe the tool down (naughty me). Since using this I've had no such problems on the steel - I use plain water for flattening the stones though to save pennies as this isn't cheap. (12/02/2015) Mike H - Essex
HoneRite Gold Water Additive, I Have used it on both diamond and water stones, no rust on the diamond stone and it appears to work very well, is a bit dear compared to washing up liquid! (24/10/2014)
