Once in a while, we need to take care of our tools (so they can take care of us, right?). Spent a couple hours flattening the backs of my chisels (it’s pretty much a one-time job for the life of a chisel), using waterstones, (1000, 4000 and 8000) as well as my MKII power sharpening system (in the case of the Narex chisels). All sharpening was done on the MKII for consistency and speed.
Tested the results with walnut endgrain cuts and all looked good (too good when I cut myself in putting a chisel aside; there were too many sharp edges around!)
