Great stones!

Great stones!

10-28-2011 01:57 PM by slickSqueegie | 4 comments »

These are excellent stones. I use them all the time. Initial sharpening and lapping on your chisels and plane irons is time consuming, but extremely rewarding. These stones are large and the case for the stones doubles as a holder that wont slide around. a lot of people out there use the “scary sharp” tequnique, and they swear by it. now I know why.They dont have any stones! these stones are just as fast as sandpaper but I think I get a better hone with these. anyone who use...

An affordable wet sharperner

I received tonight my new wet sharpener. I have been working with it for about one hour and it is working extremely well for me. I sharpened chisels, and planes blades and kitchen knives.I read on another forum that all the Tormek accessories mount right on this sharpener.

A bit on the pricey side, but extremely well made, and solves a huge problem.

A few months ago, I added Norton white oxide wheels to my 8” grinder that I use for sharpening only to be rewarded with a grinder that tried dancing across the shop… The pitiful bushings that Norton includes with their grinder wheels, well… Norton should be ashamed of themselves for including them. These things are a waste of money for Norton to include, and a waste of shipping space. SHAME ON YOUR NORTON!!!! These things have TONS of slop in them, and allow the wheel to ...

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

10-06-2014 11:28 PM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

Got this handy little gizmo in the mail the other day and used it right off on my DeWalt 12 1/2” planer blades. I would wait until all six edges need sharpening before sharpening the blades. It’s easier to sharpen 6 edges and keep it even for all the edges. I sharpen 2 edges, remove one blade and flip the other blade and put in the 3rd blade and sharpen as before. Then remove the blade that was flipped and install the first removed blade with one edge needing sharpening still. And...

Great Honing Guide

Great Honing Guide

12-12-2010 05:37 PM by cut3times | 3 comments »

This is from the hand written notes of Richard: The blade is clamped onto and makes contact with the underside of the two stainless steel location rods, these being the primary location datum. How far the cutting edge projects determines the honing angle. For example clamp up at 5/8” (16mm) and the blade will make an angle of 25 degrees to the sharpening surface. Measurement is taken from the side of the stainless steel rod to the cutting edge. A strip of wood with an accurate shoulder cou...

Honing Guide

Honing Guide

03-31-2011 01:49 PM by dbray45 | 10 comments »

Bought this and was very surprised. My other honing guide clamps on the sides and edges for the larger blades and has a triangle to hold the smaller chisels and blades. This honing guide clamps on the flat side of the blade and holds it. The guide I give 5 stars. The guide comes with a piece of stick on rubber which I put on the anvil of the guide so that the blade does not move around. The anvil, as I call it, has scribed lines to show if your blade is square to the guide, the rubber ...

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

Diamond hones sharpen your router bits and chisels

I really like these little diamond hones for sharpening carbide router bits. Just a few strokes on the back, flat edge of your bits will restore a sharp edge. Comes with three grits. This can save you money and avoid throwing away dull bits, or worse yet ruining expensive lumber.Worth a try.

Chicago Electric Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

Chicago Electric Circular Saw Blade Sharpener

05-24-2012 01:21 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 28 comments »

Addendum after 72 days: My old dewalt blade seen on the bench in the video below is what I sharpened next. I sharpened up pretty nicely. In fact I’m leaving it in the saw for a bed build and I’ve been working with Walnut, maple, and jatoba for this. So far the blade that I sharpened has been working really well. So well in fact that I think I’ll spruce up this sharpener with new knobs, and a few washers to help align things. I’m upping my rating a star. I’d se...

Glad I finally got this

Glad I finally got this

11-11-2011 06:17 AM by danielt | 13 comments »

I bought a cabinet scraper a few years ago and have really enjoyed using it. I was able to make small shavings with it right out of the box, but of course it dulled after a while. I looked at various tutorials online to learn how to sharpen it and tried to use the same techniques. I didn’t have a burnisher so I tried a variety of stand-ins: screw driver, drill bit, router bit. I was able to sharpen my scraper enough to still use it, but I could never get a good burr on it. I could on...

WORKSHARP WS3000 Great sharpner - I'm in love

WORKSHARP WS3000 Great sharpner - I'm in love

12-27-2011 09:47 PM by woodmaker | 32 comments »

I received the Work Sharp 3000 for Xmas. I absolutely love this thing. Dry sharpen, no water, no mess. I sharpened 5 chisels and one plane iron in about an hour (maybe less). The only reason I didn’t give it a 5th star is because I have one plane iron slightly over 2” and it doesn’t fit the ramp so I can’t sharpen it on the machine. I have to load the iron in a jig and sharpen from the top. The plane iron might be 2 1/8” at the most. I mean come on! I...
