Shop Stuff #3: Sharpening Gouges and Skews on the WorkSharp

330 days ago by SPalm | 20 comments »

This is part two on my journey of sharpening my lathe tools. The first part was a Fingernail Gouge. Now on to the standard Spindle Roughing Gouge (SRG) and a Bowl Gouge. Both of these gouges are sharpened at 45 degrees. I started out making a triangle ramp to lift the gouges at 45 degrees, with grooves to roll the gouge in, but I gave up on it for now. One problem that I had was that my roughing gouge is not a perfect circle – it is more like a smiley face. It would not roll well in the ...

Shop Stuff #2: Fingernail Gouge Sharpening on the WorkSharp

333 days ago by SPalm | 22 comments »

While learning to turn, the tools in use eventually need to be sharpened. I looked at various jigs, holders, and solutions for sharpening. I own a WorkSharp, but I thought that I would not be able to do it all on this machine. But I have made a series of jigs, and am now able to sharpen all my major tools with it. First up is the trickiest one. The hardest one to do is the Fingernail, or spindle gouge. Tormek and others have bars that slide out and pockets that hold the handle. I just...

Overthinking woodworking

793 days ago by BerBer5985 | 19 comments »

I’ve had the great opportunity to watch Paul Seller’s series of DVD’s along with read a lot of Christopher Schwartz’s material and being a newcomer, I’ve come to the conclusion that when most of start out, we tend to over think everything. We have had it drilled into our heads in everything we’ve done up until this point that we must MEASURE everything we do. If I’ve learned anything so far, and I’m glad I’m learning it now, is that MEAS...

Blue Collar Woodworking #7: Who said Stumpy isn't very sharp?

841 days ago by StumpyNubs | 25 comments »

What do you get when you combine unlimited resources with the greatest woodworking mind ever? This week Stumpy demonstrates the opposite of that… Stumpy turns his Work Sharp 3000 into a super-duper sharpening machine that works without sandpaper and accepts Tormek jigs. Then turns his sarcasm and twisted humor loose on the viewer emails. (Who knew handplanes and popcorn had so much in common…) This is part one of a 2 part sharpening series. Next week we make some fully adjus...

My first successful dovetail

1387 days ago by Jim | 9 comments »

For several months I’ve been trying to master the elusive dovetail joint. The only thing I’ve been able to create is a whole lot of firewood kindling. It’s been a frustrating and trying experience. I’ve read many tutorials, reviewed the Pins first or Tails first debate. Looked at ways and jigs to keep the cuts in the correct plane and alternative methods to clear out the waste material. My joints were always too loose, too tight, not lined up correctly and nothing I tr...

worksharp tool sharpener - first impressions segment 2

2357 days ago by Bob #2 | 20 comments »

I realized that I needed decent way to hang on to the correct angle on the worksharp. I began looking for a tool holder to use with it but alas, there were none available and Lee Valley’s holder would not work with this sharpener. Here’s what I came up with: I bought an extra ($10.00) hand held jig rather than make one as time is not my best friend. Next I stripped the roller assembly off the holder. I got a suitable piece of UHMW and marked it out for milling on the r...

worksharp tool sharpener - first impressions

2360 days ago by Bob #2 | 19 comments »

I purchased this sharpener at our local wood show last week and have it out of the box and pressed into service. First impressions are favourable .I has an adjustable guide for setting the proper cutting angle and deburring the blade set on click stops in the base.It has a see through wheel for grinding curved chisels and the like.It comes with a pair of glass plates which I immediately realized should be a minimum of three.I will pick up more today.All in all it a pretty decent device.Her...
