Some of the more useful accessories included the "wheel-forming" and "dressing" equipment, these having diamond tipped holders able to be manipulated so as to put the desired profile on grinding wheel for special jobs. The Diaform and Projectorscope equipment was both particularly useful in toolrooms before the better-equipped ones turned to CNC-controlled models

A variety of top-quality, Sheffield-made Eclipe magnetic vices, tables and blocks was always part of the Abwood accessory range
