This might be a simple question for a lot of you but I am a little unsure so I thought I’d ask. I picked these mortise chisels up on everyone’s favorite auction site a while ago. They are marked “Middlesex Mfg.” I am in the process of re-handling them (as you can see) but the bevels all need to be reground and they also need some lapping on the backs. I am wondering what would be a good angle to grind these chisels? Any opinions?
I have a 2” x 72” belt grinder with a flat platen and can grind them slow so as not to burn the edge…
Hope I get the picture posting thing right-I’ve not done that here before. If not bear with me, I’ll get it.
Ok, a little editing and I think the direct links are working.
