Was work in in shop today when I get a call from my girlfriend. Her 3yr old boy was in daycare with a fever and an apparent massive headache. She couldn’t find anyone else to get him and asked if I could. So shop time got cut out, no real biggie, I brought the shop to the coffee table while we watched Wall-E.
Been meaning to make some of these for consistent bevels on my planes and Chisels , but kept putting it off. I use a cheap sharpening guide just like I seen the Schwarz. For chisels it says 40 mm for 25° and 30 mm for 30°, for planes is says 50 mm for 25° and 38 mm for 30°. My current chisels won’t work in the guide, but hey, may as well make one for when I get some that do.
Grabbed some of the smaller pieces of pallet wood and cutoffs and a few tools.
The bigger one is for planes, the base is 1/2” thick pallet Maple, and the stops are pine cut off ( shoulda used a darker hardwood but he’ll it’s a jig not a piece of art).
The smaller one is for chisels, base is 1/2” red oak cut off from my bench build, (looks like it has a split but that is iron stain from what used to be a cut nail, my oak is reclaimed from a house) and the stops are pallet Maple.
Thanks for lookin, nothin special, but I am starting to like to blog…oh my.
Oh I also got me something from FedEx today, got tired of sweeping up stuff, afraid to clog up my Shop Vac filter, so I blew some food money on this lifesaver.
