One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that you can grind a heavy camber into you jack plane by rocking the jig side to side during the grinding process (80grit and 220 stage). All your other tools can have straight edges but you need a good camber on you jack plane (something that lets you take 16th-8th cuts without the corners digging in) or it just wont do it’s job right.
Sorry this took so long to get posted but editing video is taking more time and brainpower than I can safely allot this time of year. I will be posting the second half of this video on freehand techniques as rapidly as time permits. However, realizing that I am human and October is looming nearer than I would like, I am going to go ahead and link some required reading/watching. This is a tough concession to make but quite frankly making sure all your tools are in great working order is a class in and of itself (that I quite frankly, don’t have the time to teach…maybe a job for Gepetto?)
For sharpening with jigs:Deneb from Lie Nielsen using the same jig I did. Albeit with a much better film crew…you have to start somewhere.
Tools for working wood put out a wonderful guide for freehand techniques. This is the best resource I know of online.
Bob Rozieski Created a very comprehensive podcast (where you could honestly spend hours on end) that goes into sharpening everything under the sun as well as the proper use of hand-tools.
This is a very good manual for sharpening saws.
