Dirt Cheap Sharpening

09-10-2014 08:10 PM by 12strings | 0 comments »

(Disclaimer: This is not for those who already have a good sharpening system. This is for those who want to get started without a large expense) This is a picture of End-grain shavings from walnut, taken from a 100-year old Stanley No. 5 jack plane on a shooting board. I sharpened that plane blade with nothing more than this Harbor Freight 4-sided diamond block ($13 on sale…see here: http://www.harborfreight.com/4-sided-diamond-hone-block-92867.html ). It only goes up to 60...

A Quick Tip for New Turners

08-20-2014 07:11 PM by TannerTurnings | 3 comments »

Something to be aware of when turning Bowls:- When you sharpen your Bowl Gouge you may get a tiny “Burr” on the heal of the bevel that then results in scratches in your piece at the point of transition between the wall & the base on the inside. It’s always worth checking for a burr on the heal, and if you find one, just remove it with a fine file and then a bit of fine sandpaper, just to make sure the heal is smooth.

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #2: Hand tools because it made me feel safer, and my first sharpening/honing attempt...

08-08-2014 03:29 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

I’ll admit that I am more a power tool woodworker than a hybrid (and nowhere close to a hand too user). But the more projects I get under my belt, the more I realize that in order to improve as a wood worker, I’m going to have to get more used to hand tools. In some cases, it is probably safer, and not necessarily slower than power tools. I recently edge glued quite a few short pine scraps, to make them wide enough for a few kids toy projects. After edge jointing the pieces,...

worksharp jig

07-06-2014 01:22 PM by Gibernak | 4 comments »

I’ve had WS 3000 a year now and I still love it. I recently bought the bar attachment and some Tormek jigs. It works amazing. But I needed a way to remove the burr on the inside of my gouges when using the SVD 185 jig. So I made these mushroom shaped tightening knob out of MDF, they lock the wheel on and I can the apply honing past to them. I made some different sizes and with different past for different sizes of gouges. They works very well. Just wanted to share the idea. ...

Handplane Performance Tuning #5: Schwarz On Honing - Guides vs Freehand

05-12-2014 11:37 AM by OSU55 | 8 comments »

The Church of ‘Leave me Alone, Please’ By: Christopher Schwarz | May 1, 2014 During the last 17 years that I have been using a honing guide to sharpen, I’ve been approached (sometimes nearly assaulted) by people who want to teach me to sharpen freehand. My response: “I sharpen freehand all the time.” They don’t believe me, and so they spend an hour or so to show me how they hone their edges. Then they want me to try their technique and say: “That’s fantastic! I’m throwing away my ...

Plane Restoration #6: Round Two!!!

04-12-2014 07:35 PM by bit101 | 0 comments »

My plane addition is in full swing. I was looking at scrub planes and jack planes and eventually want to get a Stanley No. 7 joiner plane as well. But watching a lot of Paul Sellers videos and he’s a huge fan of the No. 4 for just doing about anything. And I’m a big fan of his. He keeps two No. 4’s to hand. One set up like a normal smoother, and one with a cambered blade, chip breaker set back, and a wide open mouth. He basically uses this as a scrub plane for removing lots ...
