Sharp one’s now Roger.

I wound up not using the station in photo #2 at all to sharpen these.
I started thinking that, now that I have options, how I wanted to go about sharpening my chisels. I’ve been looking a lot into Paul Sellers methods and knew that was the way I wanted to go. However, that means that it can be done on diamond or the oil stones that I have.
I decided to use both. I had several new chisels that have never been used or sharpened. Also, I had two badly damaged chisels. So I used the diamond plates to get them fixed up and farily sharp to start with. Then I moved over to the oil stones to becaus I have finer grits with them.
I skipped the course oil stone, because I felt that since it was courser than the finest diamond plate, that would be going backwards.
I am happy with the outcome. I’m not saying that all of them are perfect. I still have work to do on my method, but it will come. I do know you can shave hair with them though. I know they will dig in if you run them across your fingernail. I checked these two things. That is great, in my opinion, for a guy that has always cleared away from sharpening chisels as much as possible.

Now, for the lessone of the day.
If your chisels are really sharp, check hair, check paper, check finger nails. Do not push the corner into your finger though while carrying them. When they are that sharp, they also cut skin.
