I got this in my email today: Here is a good video by George Vondriska, for anyone who has a lathe that may be intimidated by sharpening lathe tools. I think it’s an awesome video. Enjoy. Thoughts and comments are always appreciated.

Hope the link works

Nice presentation. Good basic info for anyone who sharpens their own lathe tools.

Thanks, Roger!

no prob guys. the only thing I would do different would be to use a felt marker to mark the area that needs sharpening so you could track and see your progress

A little more complex for my liking Roger. I prefer a white stone on a bench grinder. You can make your own jigs out of wood for the chisels or you can buy the metal manufactured version. If you already have a bench grinder it saves another costly purchase.
Don’t get me wrong that demo was very impressive & effective but there are cheaper options. Thanks for sharing.
