Free hand it.

Buy this DVD, dead simple to do.

The time savings over a jig method really add up and make sharpening less of a pain in the butt mentally.

Sharpen my tools now also trying to manually maintain the correct angle. I have used rocks and sheets of sandpaper. The project is a way to facilitate this task and able to devote time to other things.

Watch the DVD they have a very simple way of holding/moving the tool that locks the bevel to the stone.

You’ll spend as much time getting 2 chisels registered properly in a jig as I will sharpening those same two chisels. Its a little easier with a hollow grind on them.

I just wanted to add, that I’m not saying this as some sort of snob, I just learned how to do tools free hand well after watching that dvd last weekend. Its that easy to pick up. I took a couple OK free hand honed chisels to good free hand after watching that video.

Well worth the price. The gentleman who made that video runs the website Tools For Working Wood.

Have your say...
