sharpness: or how sharp is too sharp?

04-06-2014 02:39 PM by Lazy_K | 7 comments »

Sharpening: gives me headaches just thinking about it! Not because it is difficult! It is NOT! but it is the prime example of a place where every effort to “simplify” or make it easier has resulted in More confusion and More difficulty! it started at least 150 years ago with the first Victorian era quick and easy sharpening jigs and guides. and has gone rapidly downhill. Sharpening, you should do it once a day for every tool you used that day. at the end of the day put t...

...in Which Tim Sharpens a Card Scraper.

01-10-2014 05:01 AM by Tim Anderson | 15 comments »

So, I’ve seen tons of videos, read more blog posts than I remember, and tried myself many times to follow all the different methods for sharpening a card scraper I’ve found online. After finally getting the hang of it, I wanted to post my simple no-nonsense method so you can all sharpen card scrapers with ease as well. It’s really quite a bit simpler than people have made it out to be. Required items:1. Unsharpened Card Scraper (If you don’t have this, why read t...

Work(shop) in Progress #17: Sharpening Station

10-28-2011 09:04 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

When I started working with bladed tools (chisels/planes/etc) I wanted a sharpening system that was on the cheap, small and storable and versatile. I chose to start with the scary sharp, and used sand papers from 100grit (rough shaping and cleaning nicked blades) to 2500 for final honing and green compound for touch ups. I added the Veritas MK-II honing guide and was using it for reshaping/resestting blades and honing them through the grits. While this method worked for the time I wanted s...

Techniques & Methods #1: Scary Sharp Method

06-18-2008 03:43 AM by PurpLev | 28 comments »

Shop Tools #2: Work Sharp - The Wood Tool Sharpener Review

05-27-2007 01:34 AM by WayneC | 43 comments »

I have been looking for a sharpener for a while and came close to coughing up $250 for the Jet clone of the Tormak when the woodworking show was in town last month. I had also seen the Work Sharp on the web. Dan Like had seen one in action and given it his endorsement. There is a video of it on thier web site if your interested in seeing it in action. Wood Magazine has a review of it as well as a video of it in action. Two weeks ago when I was on my way home from the bay area I stopped ...
