You may very well be right about that, murch. I have a bad habit, however, of buying gouges faster than than I can sharpen them properly. You might say that I ‘ve got a few tools laid up that haven’t been sharpened properly so they are laid up against a rainy day. :) Maybe we might have another flood that will last for 40 days and 40 nights. With 40 days and 40 nights a productive and thoughtful man could get a whole lot of sharpening done and thinking too – maybe sharpen his mind and character while he’s at it so to speak. ;) You know, old Chris Pye says they ain’t right from the factory. His theory is, if I remember correctly, that they are far too steep and and should be sharpened to a much shallower angle. It’s an interesting theory that I will try out soon I hope; however, I will definitly have to wait for a rainy day – maybe a good old cold rainy day in in the depth of a cold dark winter – if it’s not too late. ;)
