Sharpening chisels—forget weaker micro bevels

893 days ago by Paul Sellers | 126 comments »

Sharpening chisels—forget weaker micro bevels Controversial though it may seem, and though adopting micro-bevel methods for sharpening chisels may seem to make sense, a freehand convex bevel actually gives exactly the same sharpness as any micro-bevel method, but takes only a fraction of the time to develop. A convex bevel keeps its edge longer, is stronger than most other bevels and needs no special equipment beyond a pair of hands. Establishing the skill to sharpen the convex camber ...

My first real piece of equipment.

Things just keep getting better and better! Feast your eyes on what I came into possession of today. My buddy has been remodeling his house for the last two years, and had purchased this Rigid T3650 10” table saw during the process. Well the remodel is over, and the saw is all mine to use. Needless to say the saw needs a good cleaning after sitting idle for a few months, but you think I’m complaining …HECK NO. In fact, one reason I’m posting is to get some suggestions for cl...
